ERFs share many of the same strengths and weaknesses as ERPs, but the methods are nonetheless sufficiently distinct to justify their being regarded as complementary, rather than mutually redundant. A detailed description of the MEG/ERF method can be found in Hamalainen et al. (1993). For two reasons, ERFs provide an even more selective view of neural activity than do ERPs. First, the decline in the strength of a magnetic field as a function of distance is even more rapid than that for electrical fields, meaning that electromagnetic sources deep in the brain contribute less to ERFs than they do to ERPs.
