We recorded somatosensory evoked fields to passive extensions of the left and right index fingers in eight healthy adults. A new nonmagnetic device was designed to produce calibrated extensions of 19 degrees, with a mean angular velocity of 630 degrees/s. The responses, recorded with a 306-channel neuromagnetometer, were modeled with current dipoles. The(More)
The aim of the current study was to assess the reproducibility of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) brain activation signals in a sensorimotor task in healthy subjects. Because random or systematic changes are likely to happen when movements are repeated over time, the authors searched for time-dependent changes in the fMRI signal intensity and(More)
Cortical areas responsive to proprioceptive stimulation were assessed by ERP technique in normals and in selected patients with stroke and were compared to fMRI data. Repetitive extension of right and left forefinger elicited a P1/N1/P2 complex wave pattern. This pattern was absent in patient with complete sensory loss and present but spatially modified in(More)
Recent progress on atomic and chemical group effective potentials is presented. The reviewed effective potentials follow a shape-consistent extraction technique from ab initio data, within a scalar relativistic approximation. Two types of averaged relativistic effective core potentials are considered: the correlated ones where a part of the correlation(More)
