This report summarizes our recent efforts to deliver real-time data extraction, preprocessing, artifact rejection, source reconstruction, multivariate dynamical system analysis (including spectral Granger causality) and 3D visualization as well as classification within the open-source SIFT and BCILAB toolboxes. We report the application of such a pipeline… (More)
The planning of goal-directed movement towards targets in different parts of space is an important function of the brain. Such visuo-motor planning and execution is known to involve multiple brain regions, including visual, parietal, and frontal cortices. To understand how these brain regions work together to both plan and execute goal-directed movement, it… (More)
A new paradigm for human brain imaging, mobile brain/body imaging (MoBI), involves synchronous collection of human brain activity (via electroencephalography, EEG) and behavior (via body motion capture, eye tracking, etc.), plus environmental events (scene and event recording) to study joint brain/body dynamics supporting natural human cognition supporting… (More)
GOAL We present and evaluate a wearable high-density dry-electrode EEG system and an open-source software framework for online neuroimaging and state classification. METHODS The system integrates a 64-channel dry EEG form factor with wireless data streaming for online analysis. A real-time software framework is applied, including adaptive artifact… (More)
We have developed a method for studying musical engagement using simple expressive rhythmic " conducting " gestures matching the musical pulse. Expert and nonexpert participants attempted to communicate the feeling of heard musical excerpts using simple rhythmic U-shaped hand/arm " conducting " gestures that animated, in real time, the movement of a spot of… (More)
electronic copies of this thesis document in whole and in part in any medium now known or hereafter created. ABSTRACT Over the last decade, penetration of microgrids containing distributed generation (DG) sources has increased in grid distribution systems. This requires the stable operation of microgrids when connected to the distribution system as well as… (More)
OBJECTIVE High-frequency oscillations (HFOs) can be spontaneously generated by seizure-onset and functionally-important areas. We determined if consideration of the spectral frequency bands of coupled slow-waves could distinguish between epileptogenic and physiological HFOs. METHODS We studied a consecutive series of 13 children with focal epilepsy who… (More)
Currently little is known about the brain dynamics and expressive movements that support musical engagement.
