the complementary information in EEG and MEG, and apply it
to data from a patient, suffering from refractory focal
epilepsy. Skull conductivity parameters in a six
compartment finite element head model with brain
anisotropy, constructed from individual MRI data, are
estimated in a calibration procedure using somatosensory
evoked potential (SEP) and field (SEF) data. These data
are measured in a single run before acquisition of further
runs of spontaneous epileptic activity. Our results show
that even for single interictal spikes, volume conduction
effects dominate over noise and need to be taken into
account for accurate source analysis. While cerebrospinal
fluid and brain anisotropy influence both modalities, only
EEG is sensitive to skull conductivity and conductivity
calibration significantly reduces the difference in
especially depth localization of both modalities,
emphasizing its importance for combining EEG and MEG
source analysis. On the other hand, localization
differences which are due to the distinct sensitivity
profiles of EEG and MEG persist. In case of a moderate
error in skull conductivity, combined source analysis
results can still profit from the different sensitivity
profiles of EEG and MEG to accurately determine location,
orientation and strength of the underlying sources. On the
other side, significant errors in skull modeling are
reflected in EEG reconstruction errors and could reduce
the goodness of fit to combined datasets. For combined EEG
and MEG source analysis, we therefore recommend
calibrating skull conductivity using additionally acquired
SEP/SEF data.",
