The feasibility of recording event-related potentials (ERP) during functional MRI (fMRI) scanning was studied. Using an alternating checkerboard stimulus in a blocked presentation, visually evoked potentials were obtained with their expected configuration and latencies. A clustered echoplanar imaging protocol was applied to observe the hemodynamic response due to the visual stimulus interleaved with measuring ERPs. Influences of the electrode/amplifier set up on MRI scanning and the scanning process on the recording of electrophysiological signals are reported and discussed. Artifacts overlaid on the electrophysiological recordings were corrected by post hoc filtering methods presented here. Implications and limitations of conducting combined ERP/fMRI experiments using higher-level cognitive stimuli are discussed. Magn Reson Med 44:277-282, 2000.
