Previous work (Schieber and Hibbard, 1993) has shown that single motor cortical neurons do not discharge specifically for a particular flexion-extension finger movement but instead are active with movements of different fingers. In addition, neuronal populations active with movements of different fingers overlap extensively in their spatial locations in the(More)
Although computer processing power and network bandwidth are rapidly increasing, the average desktop is still not able to rapidly process large datasets such as 3-D medical image volumes. We have therefore developed a server side approach to this problem, in which a high performance graphics server accepts commands from web clients to load, process and(More)
BACKGROUND Three-dimensional (3-D) visualization of multimodality neuroimaging data provides a powerful technique for viewing the relationship between structure and function. A number of applications are available that include some aspect of 3-D visualization, including both free and commercial products. These applications range from highly specific(More)
A goal of the University of Washington Brain Project is to develop software tools for processing, integrating and visualizing multimodality language data obtained at the time of neurosurgery, both for surgical planning and for the study of language organization in the brain. Data from a single patient consist of four magnetic resonance-based image volumes,(More)
We describe a knowledge-based approach to cortical surface segmentation that uses learned knowledge of the overall shape and range of variation of the cortex (excluding the detailed gyri and sulci) to guide the search for the grey-CSF boundary in a structural MRI image volume. The shape knowledge is represented by a radial surface model, which is a type of(More)
This paper addresses the need for relatively small groups of collaborating investigators to integrate distributed and heterogeneous data about the brain. Although various national efforts facilitate large-scale data sharing, these approaches are generally too "heavyweight" for individual or small groups of investigators, with the result that most data(More)
This note describes a software utility, called X-batch which addresses two pressing issues typically faced by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) neuroimaging laboratories (1) analysis automation and (2) data management. The first issue is addressed by providing a simple batch mode processing tool for the popular SPM software package(More)
The authors describe a client-server approach to three-dimensional (3-D) visualization of neuroimaging data, which enables researchers to visualize, manipulate, and analyze large brain imaging datasets over the Internet. All computationally intensive tasks are done by a graphics server that loads and processes image volumes and 3-D models, renders 3-D(More)
We have attempted to reconcile the different patterns of distribution of interspike intervals that are found in motoneurones made to discharge by intracellular injection of constant current in reduced animal preparations and by voluntary control in human subjects. We recorded long spike trains from single motor units in three human muscles made to discharge(More)
