OBJECTIVE In recent decades intracranial EEG (iEEG) recordings using increasing numbers of electrodes, higher sampling rates, and a variety of visual and quantitative analyses have indicated the presence of widespread, high frequency ictal and preictal oscillations (HFOs) associated with regions of seizure onset. Seizure freedom has been correlated with(More)
The brain remains electrically and metabolically active during resting conditions. The low-frequency oscillations (LFO) of the blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signal of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) coherent across distributed brain regions are known to exhibit features of this activity. However, these intrinsic oscillations may undergo(More)
Accurate localization of the epileptic seizure onset zones (SOZs) is crucial for successful surgery, which usually depends on the information obtained from intracranial electroencephalography (IEEG) recordings. The visual criteria and univariate methods of analyzing IEEG recordings have not always produced clarity on the SOZs for resection and ultimate(More)
Recognizing emotional facial expressions is a part of perceptual decision-making processes in the brain. Arriving at a decision for the brain becomes more difficult when available sensory information is limited or ambiguous. We used clear and noisy pictures with happy and angry emotional expressions and asked 32 participants to categorize these pictures(More)
Electrocortical and hemodynamic measures reliably identify enhanced activity in the ventral and dorsal visual cortices during the perception of emotionally arousing versus neutral images, an effect that may reflect directive feedback from the subcortical amygdala. However, other brain regions strongly modulate visual attention, such as frontal eye fields(More)
Oscillatory interactions within functionally specialized but distributed brain regions are believed to be central to perceptual and cognitive functions. Here, using human scalp electroencephalography (EEG) recordings combined with source reconstruction techniques, we study how oscillatory activity functionally organizes different neocortical regions during(More)
Our perception of the temporal order of everyday external events depends on the integrated sensory information in the brain. Our understanding of the brain mechanism for temporal-order judgment (TOJ) of unisensory events, particularly in the visual domain, is advanced. In case of multisensory events, however, there are unanswered questions. Here, by using(More)
Human decision making in situations of inequity has long been regarded as a competition between the sense of fairness and self-interest, primarily based on behavioral and neuroimaging studies of inequity that disfavor the actor while favoring others. Here, we use functional magnetic resonance imaging experiments to study refusals and protests using both(More)
A cortico-limbic network consisting of the amygdala, medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), and ventral striatum (vSTR) has been associated with altered function in emotional disorders. Here we used rapidly sampled functional magnetic resonance imaging and Granger causality analyses to assess the directional connectivity between these brain structures in a sample(More)
Amplitude death is the cessation of oscillations that occurs in coupled nonlinear systems when fixed points are stabilized as a consequence of the interaction. We show here that this phenomenon is very general: it occurs in nonlinearly coupled systems in the absence of parameter mismatch or time delay although time-delayed interactions can enhance the(More)
