There is a vast amount of untapped spatial information in scalp-recorded EEGs. Measuring this information requires use of many electrodes and application of spatial signal enhancing procedures to reduce blur distortion due to transmission through the skull and other tissues. Recordings with 124 electrodes are now routinely made, and spatial signal enhancing(More)
A functional-anatomical brain scanner that has a temporal resolution of less than a hundred milliseconds is needed to measure the neural substrate of higher cognitive functions in healthy people and neurological and psychiatric patients. Electrophysiological techniques have the requisite temporal resolution but their potential spatial resolution has been(More)
This paper describes a method for increasing the spatial detail of the EEG and for integrating physiological data with anatomical models based on magnetic resonance images (MRIs). This method includes techniques to efficiently record EEG data from up to 124 channels, to measure 3-D electrode positions for alignment with MRI-derived head models, and to(More)
A Macintosh-based signal processing system has been developed to support simultaneous respiratory and cardiac gat-ing on the ECAT EXACT HR PET scanner. Using the Lab-View real-time software environment, the system reads analog inputs from a pneumatic respiratory bellows and an ECG monitor to compute an appropriate histogram memory location for the PET data.(More)
To evaluate the impact of respiratory motion on attenuation correction of cardiac PET data, we acquired and automatically segmented gated transmission data for a dog breathing on its own under gas anesthesia. Data were acquired for 20 min on a CTI/Siemens ECAT EXACT HR (47-slice) scanner configured for 12 gates in a static study. Two respiratory gates were(More)
