OBJECTIVE In patients with intractable epilepsy, the use of interictal spikes as surrogate markers of the epileptogenic cortex has generated significant interest. Previous studies have suggested that the cortical generators of the interictal spikes are correlated with the epileptogenic cortex as identified from the ictal recordings. We hypothesize that(More)
In this study we measured simultaneously by EEG hyperscannings the neuroelectric activity in 6 couples of subjects during the performance of the "Chicken's game", derived from game theory. The simultaneous recording of the EEG in couples of interacting subjects allows to observe and model directly the neural signature of human interactions in order to(More)
In this paper we show how the possibility of recording simultaneously the cerebral neuroelectric activity in different subjects (EEG hyperscanning) during the execution of different tasks could return useful information about the "internal" cerebral state of the subjects. We present the results obtained by EEG hyperscannings during ecological task (such as(More)
One of the most challenging questions open in Neuroscience today is the characterization of the brain responses during social interaction. A major limitation of the approaches used in most of the studies performed so far is that only one of the participating brains is measured each time. The "interaction" between cooperating, competing or communicating(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this paper is to develop a new algorithm to enhance the performance of EEG-based brain-computer interface (BCI). METHODS We improved our time-frequency approach of classification of motor imagery (MI) tasks for BCI applications. The approach consists of Laplacian filtering, band-pass filtering and classification by correlation of(More)
Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) is a predictor of increased morbidity and mortality. However, whether ARAS itself accelerates the arteriosclerotic process or whether ARAS is solely the consequence of atherosclerosis is unclear. We imaged renal arteries of 1561 hypertensive patients undergoing coronary angiography and followed this cohort for 9(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate the structure and process quality of quality-assured mamma diagnostics (QuaMaDi) by means of quality indicators as defined in the European Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Breast Cancer Screening and Diagnosis and in the National Guideline on Early Detection of Cancer in Germany. Furthermore, spatial differences and changes in the(More)
UNLABELLED If planned and applied correctly, intra-vascular brachytherapy (IVB) can significantly reduce the risk of restenosis after interventional treatment of stenotic arteries. OBJECTIVES In order to facilitate computer-based IVB planning, a three-dimensional reconstruction of the stenotic artery based on intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) sequences is(More)
BACKGROUND Intracoronary devices such as stents or guide wires may disturb the dose distribution of beta sources in cardiovascular brachytherapy. As clinical observations indicate that underdosage increases the risk of restenosis, accurate measurements are mandatory to investigate these effects. METHODS AND RESULTS Dose perturbation effects of different(More)
