Magnetoencephalography studies in humans have shown word-selective activity in the left inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) approximately 130 ms after word presentation ( Pammer et al. 2004; Cornelissen et al. 2009; Wheat et al. 2010). The role of this early frontal response is currently not known. We tested the hypothesis that the IFG provides top-down(More)
A technique has been developed for the comparison of predictive and nonpredictive ocular pursuit in human subjects, with the objective of estimating the contribution made by predictive processes to the normal pursuit response. Subjects were presented with a target moving at constant velocity in the horizontal plane and instructed to actively pursue the(More)

Caloric irrigation of the ear is a familiar clinical technique for the investigation of vestibular function that has the advantage of allowing each inner ear to be examined separately. However, it also has the disadvantage that the heating effect lasts for a period of 10-20 minutes, with the result that it is normally necessary to leave a period of at least(More)
Remembering autobiographical events can be associated with detailed visual imagery. The medial temporal lobe (MTL), precuneus and prefrontal cortex are held to jointly enable such vivid retrieval, but how these regions are orchestrated remains unclear. An influential prediction from animal physiology is that neural oscillations in theta frequency may be(More)
A total of 408 adult volunteers at Northwick Park Hospital, England, participated in an evaluation of the Vita-Stat automatic blood pressure (BP) recorder. During a five-day period in March 1981, readings of BP obtained by two Vita-Stat machines were compared with measurements obtained by two trained observers using Random-Zero sphygmomanometers. The order(More)
