2
Q

Why is referencing important when recording brain signals

a. to minimize the contribution of ground-related noise to recorded signals
b. to baseline brain activity in one region against that another
c. to remove features of signals associated with diseases

A

a

3
Q

what is the primary benefit of recording from multiple brain sites?
