In order to investigate the activity of cortical regions in the control of complex movements, we studied task-related coherence (TRCoh) and task-related spectral power (TRPow) changes in 8 right-handed subjects during the execution of 4 different finger movement sequences of increasing complexity. All sequences were performed with the right hand and were(More)
Event-related desynchronization (ERD) 2.0 sec before and 1.0 sec after movement in the frequency bands of 8-10, 10-12, 12-20 and 20-30 Hz and movement-related cortical potentials (MRCPs) to self-paced movements were studied from subdural recordings over the central region in 3 patients, and from scalp-recorded EEGs in 20 normal volunteers. In direct(More)
To investigate the activity of cortical regions in the control of movement, we studied event-related desynchronization/synchronization (ERD/ERS), event-related coherence (ERC), and phase coherence in 29-channel EEGs from 9 subjects performing self-paced movements of the right index finger. Movement preparation and execution produced ERD over the(More)
BACKGROUND We observed a syndrome of intermittent fevers, early-onset lacunar strokes and other neurovascular manifestations, livedoid rash, hepatosplenomegaly, and systemic vasculopathy in three unrelated patients. We suspected a genetic cause because the disorder presented in early childhood. METHODS We performed whole-exome sequencing in the initial(More)
OBJECTIVES To study cortical activity in different motor tasks, we compared event-related desynchronization (ERD) and event-related potentials (ERPs) in different reaction time (RT) paradigms with the time course of corticospinal excitability. METHODS Nine right-handed, normal subjects performed right or left thumb extensions in simple, choice and go/no(More)
Transcranial magnetic stimulation with a focal coil was used to map the cortical representation of a hand muscle in four healthy subjects. In each subject, the three-dimensional locations of the magnetic stimulation positions and about 400 positions on the surface of the head were digitized. The amplitude-weighted center of gravity of each subject's map was(More)
Multichannel recordings of both movement-related magnetic fields (MRMFs) and movement-related cortical potentials (MRCPs) were simultaneously recorded in association with voluntary unilateral self-paced index finger abduction movement in two normal volunteers. 1) Slow magnetic field (readiness field; RF) can be detected several hundred msec before the(More)
BACKGROUND Palatal tremor is divided into symptomatic palatal tremor (SPT) and essential palatal tremor (EPT) on the basis of clinical features. The inferior olive seems to be abnormal in SPT, but not EPT. Because the inferior olive is likely to be involved in several types of motor learning, it is hypothesised that motor learning would be abnormal in(More)
OBJECTIVE To design a test of motor learning using arm movements in normal subjects and patients with cerebellar disease. METHODS Elbow angle was continuously displayed as a cursor (a dot) on a computer screen, and subjects made ballistic elbow flexion and extension movements to try to move the cursor between two targets on the screen. The relation(More)
To evaluate the hypothesis that self-paced movements are mediated primarily by the supplementary motor area, whereas externally triggered movements are mainly affected by the lateral premotor cortex, different movements in 6 healthy volunteers were studied while changes in regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) were measured using positron emission tomography(More)
