Topic: To provide insight into the brain activity during walking and running, we use high-density electroencephalography. Traditional means of recording brain activity, such as fMRI, PET, and MEG, have limitations in that the subject must remain motionless or can only provide brain activity averaged over a long duration. Over the last ten years, we have pioneered the use of high-density electroencephalography (EEG) to study brain activity patterns in freely moving human subjects. In particular, we have had to devise novel software algorithms and hardware modifications to reduce motion artifacts that appear in the EEG recordings. The advanced technology allows us to study brain function in laboratory and real-world settings.
