BACKGROUND This study aimed to compare the effects of different depths of sedation during total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) with remifentanil and propofol given by target-controlled infusion (TCI) on postoperative cognitive function in young and middle-aged patients undergoing gynecological laparoscopic surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 150(More)
Previous event-related potentials research has reliably identified two repetition priming components in faces, the N250r and the N400, which are believed to reflect, respectively, the accessing to the stored structural representations and the semantic retrieval. However, the effect of lags longer than immediate repetition and shorter than 3 min on the two(More)
Previous research has suggested that faces and words are processed and remembered differently as reflected by different ERP patterns for the two types of stimuli. Specifically, face stimuli produced greater late positive deflections for old items in anterior compared to posterior regions, while word stimuli produced greater late positive deflections in(More)
Previous research has found that conjunction faces (whose internal features, e.g. eyes, nose, and mouth, and external features, e.g. hairstyle and ears, are from separate studied faces) and feature faces (partial features of these are studied) can produce higher false alarms than both old and new faces (i.e. those that are exactly the same as the studied(More)
Previous event-related potentials (ERPs) research has suggested that the retrieval tasks for many sources of items were operated in the frontal regions, but Cycowicz et al. [2-4,6] recorded the late posterior negativity (LPN), a component over the posterior cortex, in retrieving the associative color sources of pictures. To examine whether the LPN could(More)
With healthy young adults, healthy old adults(which was hereafter termed as elders) and tumor patients with no pathological changes in brain(which was hereafter designated as patients) as participants, this study compared the performance of the item recognition task with that of the location source retrieval using unfamiliar human faces as stimuli among(More)
