Three different brain potentials preceeding voluntary rapid finger flexion can be recorded from the skull surface by time reversed averaging. The early cortical activity preceding unilateral movement is bilateral and widespread (Bereitschaftspotential, BP). The same applies for the second potential (pre-motion positivity, PMP). Only the third potential(More)
We compare the localisation of epileptic foci by means of (1) EEG, (2) magnetoencephalography (MEG) and (3) combined EEG/MEG data in a group of patients suffering from pharmaco-resistant focal epilepsy. Individual epileptic events were localised by means of a moving dipole model in a 4-shell spherical head approximation. A patient's epileptic activity was(More)
Disturbances of the topographical distribution of theta activity in the EEG spectra before and during voluntary movements were investigated in 31 neuroleptic-treated and in 13 untreated schizophrenics and matched controls as well as in 15 normals medicated with haloperidol. All 4 groups demonstrated similar topographical distribution of theta mean power(More)
Thirteen untreated schizophrenic patients, among them nine who had never been treated, were compared with a corresponding number of matched normal controls with regard to changes of the spectral composition of the electroencephalogram (EEG) accompanying voluntary movements. Triggered by self-paced movements of the right fingers (fast fist closure), the(More)
15 normal volunteers demonstrated after 14 days of haloperidol (HA) medication (3 mg/day) a higher mean power density (mpd) in all frequency bands of the EEG power spectra combined with a higher theta and a lower alpha center frequency (cf). After further 7 days of HA medication together with the additionally applied anticholinergic biperidene (BI) (6(More)
Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded in 19 healthy subjects as they completed two Sternberg (1969, American Scientist, 57, 421-457) memory tests. In separate sessions, either single digits (i.e., 0-9) or 10 abstract figures were used as stimuli. In both sessions, memory set sizes were 1 (M1), 2 (M2), or 4 (M4). The amplitude and latency of the(More)
18 healthy subjects had to guess, which of two nonequiprobable events would occur next. Each trial was preceded by a cue which increased the probability of the corresponding event as compared to its global probability. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded and then classified according to global probability of events, their relation to the(More)
