Optimization of an independent component analysis approach for artifact identification and removal in magnetoencephalographic signals
OBJECTIVE To propose a noise reduction procedure for magnetoencephalography (MEG) signals introducing an automatic detection system of artifactual components (ICs) separated by an independentExpand

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) andExpand

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

Impact of the reference choice on scalp EEG connectivity estimation.
OBJECTIVE Several scalp EEG functional connectivity studies, mostly clinical, seem to overlook the reference electrode impact. The subsequent interpretation of brain connectivity is thus often biasedExpand

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

Estimating true brain connectivity from EEG/MEG data invariant to linear and static transformations in sensor space
The imaginary part of coherency is a measure to investigate the synchronization of brain sources on the EEG/MEG sensor level, robust to artifacts of volume conduction meaning that independent sourcesExpand

Rhythmic brain activity at rest from rolandic areas in acute mono-hemispheric stroke: A magnetoencephalographic study
In order to deepen our knowledge of the brain's ability to react to a cerebral insult, it is fundamental to obtain a "snapshot" of the acute phase, both for understanding the neural conditionExpand

Does cerebrovascular disease affect the coupling between neuronal activity and local haemodynamics?
The relationship between neurophysiological and cerebrovascular-metabolic findings in patients affected by severe cerebrovascular deficits was investigated by comparing magnetoencephalographicExpand
