The contingent negative variation (CNV), and the associated event-related desynchronization (ERD) on motor areas and sensory areas, and increase of alpha in the ipsilateral to the cued stimulus side, are different brain signals that reflect motor, sensory, and cognitive activations related to the expectancy of the next stimulus. However, the possibility of(More)
The present report studied the magnetic counterpart (CMV) of the auditory contingent negative variation (CNV). The ear where the target auditory stimulus would be presented was cued with a visual central arrow at a validity of 84%. The subject's behavioral response and the magnetoencephalographic (MEG) and electroencephalographic (EEG) signals were(More)
In this study, we recorded the event-related potentials (ERPs) elicited by stimuli appearing at attended and unattended locations. The voltage amplitudes and latencies of the P1, N1, P2, N2 and P3 visual components showed statistically significant differences in the attended condition with respect to the unattended one. The power spectral density of the EEG(More)
BACKGROUND A possible method of finding physiological markers of multiple sclerosis (MS) is the application of EEG quantification (QEEG) of brain activity when the subject is stressed by the demands of a cognitive task. In particular, modulations of the spectral content that take place in the EEG of patients with multiple sclerosis remitting-relapsing(More)
The aim of present work is to test possible gender differences in the ERPs to the standards during the performance of a visual-spatial attention task. The sample: 20 subjects (10 women) aged 18-24. Electrodes: F3, F4, C3, C4, P3, P4, T5, T6, O1, O2. ANOVA tests were computed with the following factors: attention, gender, visual field, hemisphere, and(More)
Event-related potentials (ERPs) are an electrophysiological index of various cognitive processes such as attention. However, this kind of analysis does not allow observation of differences in the spectral content taking place during a sensory, cognitive or motor task. The goal of the present work was to compute the temporal dynamics of EEG oscillations(More)
BACKGROUND Cognitive impairment is a common feature in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and occurs in 60% of all cases. Unfortunately, neurological examination does not always agree with the neuropsychological evaluation in determining the cognitive profile of the patient. On the other hand, psychophysiological techniques such as event-related potentials(More)
The present report studied the contingent negative variation during Gap and Non-Gap conditions using visual stimulation and manual responses. The reaction times during the Gap condition were facilitated compared with those of the Non-Gap condition. The contingent negative variation component was obtained during the preparatory period from electrodes placed(More)
BACKGROUND This study was realized thanks to the collaboration of children and adolescents who had been resected from cerebellar tumors. The medulloblastoma group (CE+, n = 7) in addition to surgery received radiation and chemotherapy. The astrocytoma group (CE, n = 13) did not receive additional treatments. Each clinical group was compared in their(More)
