OBJECTIVE Introducing a network-oriented analysis method (brain network activation [BNA]) of event related potential (ERP) activities and evaluating its value in the identification and severity-grading of adult ADHD patients. METHODS Spatio-temporal interrelations and synchronicity of multi-sited ERP activity peaks were extracted in a group of 13 ADHD(More)
Information contained in the R-R interval series, specific to the pre-ictal period, was sought by applying an unsupervised fuzzy clustering algorithm to the N-dimensional phase space of N consecutive interval durations or the absolute value of duration differences. Data sources were individual, complex partial seizures of temporal-lobe epileptics and(More)
Dynamic state recognition and event-prediction are fundamental tasks in biomedical signal processing. We present a new, electroencephalogram (EEG)-based, brain-state identification method which could form the basis for forecasting a generalized epileptic seizure. The method relies on the existence in the EEG of a preseizure state, with extractable unique(More)
The vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) is known to be modulated in response to changing vestibular and optokinetic stimuli. The purpose of this study was to investigate possible relationships between VOR and future susceptibility and habituation to seasickness. Thirty candidates for future maritime service were exposed to a series of yaw axis smooth harmonic(More)

The Levantine Basin (LB) is still considered a void as regards its cetacean fauna: species population abundance and distribution patterns are unknown, and even the list of species and their regional status have so far not been finalized. In an effort to fill the knowledge gap, we present original data collected in the LB over the years 1993-2009. The data(More)
Time series are common in many research fields. Since both a query and a target sequence may be noisy, i.e., contain some outlier elements, it is desirable to exclude the outlier elements from matching in order to obtain a robust matching performance. Moreover, in many applications like shape alignment or stereo correspondence it is also desirable to have a(More)
The possibility of an altered susceptibility of the injured brain to central nervous system (CNS) oxygen toxicity was examined in awake rats. Moderate to severe closed head injury with diffuse axonal damage was produced in anesthetized rats by the fluid percussion method (2-2.5 atm), after which chronic EEG electrodes were implanted. Twenty-four hours(More)
The main manifestations of CNS oxygen toxicity are generalized tonic-clonic seizures. We tested the protective effect of 2 antiepileptic drugs, carbamazepine and ethosuximide, which are commonly used for the treatment of generalized seizures, on hyperbaric oxygen-induced convulsions. Rats implanted with chronic cortical electrodes for continuous EEG(More)
The novel glycine-prodrug anticonvulsant, milacemide (2-N-pentylaminoacetamide) (500 mg/kg), significantly increased (greater than 400% the seizure threshold induced by hyperbaric oxygen (4.5 atmosphere). This effect was significantly reduced by the selective inhibition of monoamine oxidase B by 1-deprenyl (2.0 mg/kg). 1-Deprenyl alone hardly affected the(More)
A decrease in brain GABA concentration has been implied as the cause of convulsions induced by hyperbaric oxygen (HOP). We therefore examined the influence of sodium valproate, an anticonvulsant and GABA transaminase inhibitor on HOP-induced convulsions in rats. The mean latency of occurrence of the first electrical discharge in the ECoG and the appearance(More)
