The aim of the present research is to study the magnetoencephalogram (MEG) background activity in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) using the Lempel-Ziv (LZ) complexity. We recorded the MEG with a 148-channel whole-head magnetometer (MAGNES 2500 WH, 4D Neuroimaging) in 10 patients with probable AD and 10 age-matched control subjects, during five(More)
The aim of this study was to explore the ability of several time-frequency parameters to discriminate between spontaneous magnetoencephalographic (MEG) oscillations from 20 Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients and 21 controls. The spectral crest factor (SCF) and the spectral turbulence (ST) were calculated from the time-frequency distribution of the normalized(More)
We analyzed the frequency spectrum of magnetoencephalogram (MEG) background activity in 16 bipolar disorder (BD) patients and 24 age-matched healthy control. Median frequency (MF), spectral entropy (SpEn), and relative power in delta (RPδ), theta (RPθ), alpha (RPα), beta (RPβ), and gamma (RPγ) bands were computed for all 148 MEG channels. Significant(More)
The goal of this study was to analyze the magnetoencephalogram (MEG) background activity in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) using a nonlinear forecasting measure. It is a nonparametric method to quantify the predictability of time series. Five minutes of recording were acquired with a 148-channel whole-head magnetometer in 15 patients with probable(More)
—Objective: Due to the non-linearity of numerous biomedical signals, non-linear analysis of multi-channel time series, notably multivariate multiscale entropy (mvMSE), has been extensively used in biomedical signal processing. However, mvMSE has three drawbacks: 1) mvMSE values are either undefined or unreliable for short signals; 2) mvMSE is not fast(More)
