Sleep was analysed in 8 young adults subjects during two baseline nights and two recovery nights following 40.5 h sleep deprivation. Sleep stages were scored from the polygraph records according to conventional criteria. In addition, the EEG records of the entire nights were subjected to spectral analysis to compute the frequency distribution of the power(More)
OBJECTIVE Nonpharmacological treatments are available for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), although their efficacy remains uncertain. The authors undertook meta-analyses of the efficacy of dietary (restricted elimination diets, artificial food color exclusions, and free fatty acid supplementation) and psychological (cognitive training,(More)
The acquisition of reading skills is a major landmark process in a human's cognitive development. On the neural level, a new functional network develops during this time, as children typically learn to associate the well-known sounds of their spoken language with unfamiliar characters in alphabetic languages and finally access the meaning of written words,(More)
OBJECTIVES Spatial analysis of the evoked brain electrical fields during a cued continuous performance test (CPT) revealed an extremely robust anteriorization of the positivity of a P300 microstate in the NoGo compared to the Go condition (NoGo-anteriorization in a previous study). To allow a neuroanatomical interpretation the NoGo-anteriorization was(More)
Late development of specialization in the visual word processing system was examined using event-related potentials (ERP) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of word and symbol string processing in groups of adolescents (15.2-17.3 years) and adults (19.8-30.8 years). We focused our ERP analyses on fast visual activity: the occipital P1 (82-131(More)
Investigating human brain function non-invasively by simultaneous EEG and fMRI measurements is gaining in popularity as more and better solutions to the inherent technical challenges emerge. We demonstrate the use of a commercially available frequency divider and phase-locking device for the purpose of synchronizing an MRI acquisition with a simultaneous(More)
Combining event-related potentials (ERP) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) may provide sufficient temporal and spatial resolution to clarify the functional connectivity of neural processes, provided both methods represent the same neural networks. The current study investigates the statistical correspondence of ERP tomography and fMRI within(More)
BACKGROUND Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a very common and highly heritable child psychiatric disorder associated with dysfunctions in fronto-striatal networks that control attention and response organization. The aim of this study was to investigate whether features of action monitoring related to dopaminergic functions represent(More)
The Continuous Performance Test (CPT) is successfully applied in clinical routine to evaluate attentional performance. The aim of the present study was to investigate the features of the ERPs related to the conditions of a cued CPT, in particular the Go-and the NoGo-condition demanding either the execution or the inhibition of a prepared motor response. For(More)
Objective: To investigate motor response control during a cued continuous performance test (CPT-A-X) by performance and ERP parameters in children with hyperkinetic disorder (HD), hyperkinetic conduct disorder (HCD) or oppositional deviant/conduct disorder (ODD/CD), to examine the evidence for an inhibition-specific deficit as indicated by these parameters,(More)
