Combining both EEG and fMRI is still a challenging task. A large number of studies on the feasibility of EEG-fMRI for the visual system have been performed because it is an accessible and well-described system. In this chapter we will discuss studies around signal quality, the different types of EEG-fMRI experiments in the visual system (EEG-informed fMRI, fMRI-informed EEG, etc.), different cognitive and sensory aspects of the visual tasks studied, the link between spontaneous and task-driven neuronal oscillations and the fMRI signal and also studies of neurovascular coupling that have been undertaken in the visual system.
