In this work, a step towards a non-contact motion correction technique has been made. Measurements of extra-cranial field perturbations made using a 16-channel magnetic field camera have been used to predict head motion parameters with good accuracy. The prediction was performed using both linear (PLS) and non-linear (NARX) methods. The number of field probes used for the prediction was reduced by performing Principal Component Analysis. Magnetic field data was also pre-processed to reduce the unwanted effect of chest movement in respiration. NARX outperformed the PLS approach producing good predictions of head position changes for a wider range of movements.
