The late, acoustically evoked, averaged magnetic field from the right hemisphere of the human brain is composed of two signals. One is dominant, appears generated by an equivalent current dipole within or near the primary auditory cortex and shows a frequency dependent location and/or orientation (tonotopical organization). The other, denoted the 'residual'(More)
The late averaged magnetic field evoked by contra- and ipsilateral auditory stimulation is recorded by means of a SQUID magnetometer from both hemispheres in four normally hearing, right-handed male adults. The stimuli consist of 1 kHz, 500 ms tone pulses with intensities from 5 to 85 dB HL and averaging is based on 60 sweeps. Stimulating the right ear the(More)
By means of a magnetic sensor, SQUID (Superconducting Quantum-Interference Device) the late acoustically evoked magnetic field was recorded from the right and left side of the skull in 5 humans in response to ipsi- and contralateral 1 kHz tone bursts at 80 dB SPL. The '100 ms' component of the magnetic field has opposite polarity on the two sides of the(More)
Combined magnetoencephalography and positron emission tomography identified a prior source of activity in the left middle frontal gyrus during uncued movements of the right index finger. Voluntary movements gave rise to a change in the cortical electrical potential known as the Bereitschaftspotential or Readiness Potential, recorded as early as 1500 ms(More)
Auditory evoked cortical magnetic fields are recorded from human subjects by means of a SQUID gradiometer. The spatial and temporal distributions of the averaged evoked fields normal to the surface of the skull are measured from both hemispheres in response to contra- and ipsilateral 1 kHz stimulation. The evoked magnetic response can be separated into a(More)
Frequency glides from a continuous tone have been shown to produce activity from the human cortex that can be recorded as time-varying magnetic fields outside the scalp in the same way as simpler auditory stimuli such as clicks and tone bursts. Data analysis has been based on a model assuming an equivalent current dipole localized close to the skull(More)

A new classification of sandpile models into universality classes is presented. On the basis of extensive numerical simulations, in which we measure an extended set of exponents, the Manna two state model [S. S. Manna, J. Phys. A 24, L363 (1991)] is found to belong to a universality class of random neighbor models which is distinct from the universality(More)
BACKGROUND A number of studies have shown that poor self-rated health is more prevalent among people in poor, socially disadvantaged positions. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between self-rated health and social position in 10 deprived neighbourhoods. METHODS A stratified random sample of 7,934 households was selected. Of(More)
The intensity dependence of the 100 msec magnetic field signal evoked by contralateral application of a tone burst stimulus has been examined for both hemispheres and for a number of frequencies. In all cases the component of the magnetic field normal to the skull was measured; in some cases this component was oriented in the outward direction (group 1 and(More)
BACKGROUND There has been increasing interest in neighbourhoods' influence on individuals' health-risk behaviours, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity and diet. The aim of this review was to systematically review recent studies on health-risk behaviour among adults who live in deprived neighbourhoods compared with those who live in(More)
