Neuroimaging data emphasize that older adults often show greater extent of brain activation than younger adults for similar objective levels of difficulty. A possible interpretation of this finding is that older adults need to recruit neuronal resources at lower loads than younger adults, leaving no resources for higher loads, and thus leading to(More)
A common problem in brain imaging is how to most appropriately coregister anatomical and functional data sets into a common space. For surface-based recordings such as the event related optical signal (EROS), near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), event-related potentials (ERPs), and magnetoencephalography (MEG), alignment is typically done using either (1) a(More)
Changes in attention allocation with complex task learning reflect processing automatization and more efficient control. We studied these changes using ERP and EEG spectral analyses in subjects playing Space Fortress, a complex video game comprising standard cognitive task components. We hypothesized that training would free up attentional resources for a(More)
We hypothesized that control processes, as measured using electrophysiological (EEG) variables, influence the rate of learning of complex tasks. Specifically, we measured alpha power, event-related spectral perturbations (ERSPs), and event-related brain potentials during early training of the Space Fortress task, and correlated these measures with(More)
Sound repetition typically reduces auditory N1 amplitudes, more so at higher rates. This has been attributed to refractoriness of N1 generators. However, evidence that N1 attenuation is delayed 300-400 ms after the first occurrence of a repeated sound suggests an alternative process, such as inhibition, that requires 300-400 ms to become fully operational.(More)
The event-related optical signal (EROS) has been recently proposed as a method for studying noninvasively the time course of activity in localized cortical areas (G. Gratton and M. Fabiani, 1998, Psychonomic Bull. Rev. 5: 535-563). Previous data have shown that EROS has very good temporal resolution and can provide detailed surface activity maps. In the(More)

fMRI and ERP studies have shown that tasks comprising conflicting stimulus-response associations activate a variety of cortical regions. It remains unclear whether any of these areas are activated by all conflict tasks, or whether conflict resolution is a common property of a number of distinct anatomical regions. Several regions in frontal and parietal(More)
Behavioral and physiological studies have indicated the existence of a temporal window of auditory integration (TWI), within which similar sounds are perceptually grouped. The current study exploits the combined temporal and spatial resolution of fast optical imaging (the event-related optical signal, EROS) to show that brain activity elicited by sounds(More)
