In this paper, we investigated the influence of orientation and activation area of extended cortical current sources upon the solutions of magnetoencephalography (MEG) inverse problems.
Extensive simulation studies were performed with artificial MEG datasets generated using a realistic head geometry model.
Our simulation studies demonstrated that as the source activation area was extended beyond a threshold level, the radial component of cortical sources was weakened and thus the accuracy of MEG inverse problem was enhanced.
These are important findings suggesting that one may not need to be concerned too much about the insensitivity of MEG to radial sources in many practical MEG measurements.
