Early blind (EB) individuals can recognize bidimensional shapes using a prosthesis substituting vision with audition (PSVA) and activate right dorsal extrastriate visual cortex during the execution of this task. The present study used repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) to further examine the functional role of this structure in the(More)
The intracarotid amobarbital test (IAT) is used for presurgical evaluation of language lateralization. However, this procedure has many limitations, especially in children. As an alternative to IAT, in the case described here, near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) was used to investigate expressive and receptive language lateralization as part of the(More)
Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a novel imaging technique of potential value in the pre-surgical investigation of patients with refractory epilepsy. We recorded simultaneously electrophysiology (EEG; Compumedics, USA) and near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS; ISS, USA) to examine the localization of the ictal onset zone and assess language lateralization(More)
Based on multiple invasive reports and neuroimaging studies, it is well established that the cytoarchitecture of the visual cortex is related to its functional organization, namely, its retinotopy. The present study aimed to further investigate retinotopic mapping as well as specific vertical and horizontal functional asymmetries within the human visual(More)
