Functional cerebral mapping characterizes areas of CNS, which are involved in visual, sensory, motor, auditory, memory, speech functions and attention. In past it was possible to determine localization of cerebral function only invasively by direct electrical cortical stimulation or Wada test. Recently there are attempts to use non-invasive methods (fMRI, TMS, PET, TCD, MEG) to investigate the brain from different point of view and principle. The aim of recent studies is to find an available method with ideal spatial and temporal resolution which could help us in better understanding of functional brain organization.
