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

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

Functional source separation from magnetoencephalographic signals
We propose a novel cerebral source extraction method (functional source separation, FSS) starting from extra‐cephalic magnetoencephalographic (MEG) signals in humans. It is obtained by adding aExpand

Is cognitive function linked to serum free copper levels? A cohort study in a normal population
OBJECTIVE Much research on copper-dependent neurodegeneration has focused on the study of total copper levels in the organism. However, recent evidence suggests that the portion of copper that doesExpand

High-gamma band activity of primary hand cortical areas: A sensorimotor feedback efficiency index
Sensory feedback in motor control is widely recognized to be the key link between the activity of the primary motor cortex to the motor behavior. Through an ad-hoc developed procedure for sourceExpand

Functional source separation and hand cortical representation for a brain–computer interface feature extraction
A brain–computer interface (BCI) can be defined as any system that can track the person's intent which is embedded in his/her brain activity and, from it alone, translate the intention into commandsExpand

Somatosensory dynamic gamma-band synchrony: A neural code of sensorimotor dexterity
To investigate neural coding characteristics in the human primary somatosensory cortex, two fingers with different levels of functional skill were studied. Their dexterity was scored by the FingertipExpand

Functional source separation applied to induced visual gamma activity
Objective of this work was to explore the performance of a recently introduced source extraction method, FSS (Functional Source Separation), in recovering induced oscillatory change responses fromExpand

Fetal auditory responses to external sounds and mother's heart beat: Detection improved by Independent Component Analysis
In this paper, we present a magnetoencephalographic study of the fetal auditory response to external stimuli and to the sound of the mother's heartbeat. We describe how an ad hoc functional selectionExpand

Hand sensory–motor cortical network assessed by functional source separation
The functional source separation procedure (FSS) was applied to identify the activities of the primary sensorimotor areas (SM1) devoted to hand control. FSS adds a functional constraint to the costExpand
