Magnetoencephalography (MEG) scan is the newest technique used to precisely map functional areas of the brain. The MEG scanner generates a real-time movie of brain activity as a patient is asked to do specific exercises. It is currently the best method for generating preoperative brain maps, the scan helps neurosurgeons determine the best surgical approach.
