    Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a functional brain imaging technique with millisecond temporal resolution and millimeter spatial sensitivity. The high temporal resolution of MEG compared to fMRI and PET (milliseconds vs. seconds and tens of seconds) makes it ideal for measuring the precise time of neuronal responses, thereby o!ering a powerful tool for studying temporal dynamics. We applied blind-source separation (BSS) to continuous 122-channel human magnetoencephalographic data from two subjects and "ve tasks. We demonstrate that without using any domain-speci"c knowledge and without making the common assumption of single- or multiple-current dipole sources, BSS is capable of separating non-neuronal noise sources from neuronal responses and also of separating neuronal responses from di!erent sensory modalities, and from di!erent processing stages within a given modality
