In biomedical signal processing, it is often the case that many sources are mixed into the measured signal. The goal is usually to analyze one or several of them separately. In the case of multichannel measurements, several blind source separation techniques are available for decomposing the signal into its components [e.g., independent component analysis(More)
Simultaneous EEG-fMRI measurements can combine the high spatial resolution of fMRI with the high temporal resolution of EEG. Therefore, we applied this approach to the study of peripheral vision. More specifically, we presented visual field quadrant fragments of checkerboards and a full central checkerboard in a simple detection task. A technique called(More)
Simultaneous EEG-fMRI has proven to be useful in localizing interictal epileptic activity. However, the applicability of traditional GLM-based analysis is limited as interictal spikes are often not seen on the EEG inside the scanner. Therefore, we aim at extracting epileptic activity purely from the fMRI time series using independent component analysis(More)
Several EEG source reconstruction techniques have been proposed to identify the generating neuronal sources of electrical activity measured on the scalp. The solution of these techniques depends directly on the accuracy of the forward model that is inverted. Recently, a parametric empirical Bayesian (PEB) framework for distributed source reconstruction in(More)
The decomposition of high-density surface EMG (HD-sEMG) interference patterns into the contribution of motor units is still a challenging task. We introduce a new, fast solution to this problem. The method uses a data-driven approach for selecting a set of electrodes to enable discrimination of present motor unit action potentials (MUAPs). Then, using(More)
A new, automated way to obtain signatures of active motor units (MUs) from high density surface EMG recordings during voluntary contractions is presented. It relies on clustering of repetitive shapes corresponding to different MU action potentials (MUAPs) present. The number of clusters and the mean shapes of the MUAPs as observed on the electrode grid, are(More)
The extraction of task-related single trial ERP features has recently gained much interest, in particular in simultaneous EEG-fMRI applications. In this study, a specific decomposition known as parallel factor analysis (PARAFAC) was used, in order to retrieve the task-related activity from the raw signals. Using visual detection task data, acquired in(More)
Since several years, neuroscience research started to focus on multimodal approaches. One such multimodal approach is the combination of electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). However, no standard integration procedure has been established so far. One promising data-driven approach consists of a joint decomposition of(More)
We revisit the multiple sparse priors (MSP) algorithm implemented in the statistical parametric mapping software (SPM) for distributed EEG source reconstruction (Friston et al., 2008). In the present implementation, multiple cortical patches are introduced as source priors based on a dipole source space restricted to a cortical surface mesh. In this note,(More)
To fully understand the cognitive processes occurring in the human brain, high resolution in both spatial and temporal information is needed. Most neuroimaging approaches, however, only possess high accuracy in one of these two domains. Therefore, the multimodal analysis of brain activity is becoming more and more popular among the research community. One(More)
