This can create free radicals in the form of ionized water, which can in turn remove electrons or hydrogen atoms from other molecules in Neuroimaging Methods 29 the body. In sufficient doses, this process can cause damage or death to cell machinery. By contrast, nonionizing radiation – such as that used for transmitting mobile phone signals, radio broadcasts, or microwave transmissions, as well as for MRI – transmits much less energy, and only excites electrons to a higherenergy state, rather than removing them from their orbits.

Even the best artefact rejection or correction procedures cannot replace the need for clean, artefact-free recordings. To obtain the best recordings and maximize signal-tonoise ratio, it is critical to keep the time for electrode placement to a minimum, and to keep experiments short and interesting for the participants. Providing the child participant with periodic breaks, colourful moving attention grabbers between blocks of trials, and reinforcements for sitting still are all effective tools for improving the quality of the EEG and resulting ERP.
