Carpal tunnel syndrome modifies sensory hand cortical somatotopy: A MEG study
The adult somatosensory system has shown reorganizational abilities at cortical and subcortical levels after peripheral nerve lesions. In the present study the effects of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)Expand

Mapping distributed sources of cortical rhythms in mild Alzheimer's disease. A multicentric EEG study
The study aimed at mapping (i) the distributed electroencephalographic (EEG) sources specific for mild Alzheimer's disease (AD) compared to vascular dementia (VaD) or normal elderly people (Nold) and the distributed EEG sources sensitive to the mild AD at different stages of severity. Expand

Developmental Tuning and Decay in Senescence of Oscillations Linking the Corticospinal System
There is increasing evidence of the importance of synchronous activity within the corticospinal system for motor control. We compared oscillatory activity in the primary sensorimotor cortex [EEG ofExpand

Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation enhances procedural consolidation.
The primary motor cortex (M1) area recruitment enlarges while learning a finger tapping sequence. Also M1 excitability increases during procedural consolidation. Our aim was to investigate whetherExpand

Inhibition of auditory cortical responses to ipsilateral stimuli during dichotic listening: evidence from magnetoencephalography
The present magnetoencephalography (MEG) study on auditory evoked magnetic fields (AEFs) was aimed at verifying whether during dichotic listening the contralateral auditory pathway inhibits theExpand
