In order to clarify the significance of the various components of the movement-related cortical potentials, scalp-recorded potential changes associated with voluntary, self-paced middle finger flexion and extension were studied by an opisthochronic averaging program in 14 normal right-handed subjects. Topographical study, based on 14 simultaneously recorded(More)
In order to clarify the time relationship and functional significance of post-motion components of the movement-related cortical potential, averaged cortical potentials associated with voluntary and passive movements were compared mainly with respect to their scalp topography. Fourteen channels of scalp EEG, together with EOG and EMG, were simultaneously(More)
We have recorded movement-related cortical potentials (MRCPs) to voluntary middle finger extension from 10 young and 10 old subjects free of neurological disease using the method of detecting EMG onset associated with each movement described by Barrett et al. (1985). The slow potential shifts preceding movement were measured by fitting a linear regression(More)
Event-related potentials (ERP) and regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) activation using 15O-labeled water associated with retrieval and retention of episodic memory were studied during a visual paired-association task with delayed response in eight healthy subjects. In both studies, the subjects memorized four pairs of figures during the learning period.(More)
In order to develop an experimental paradigm for clinical application of cognitive event-related potentials we have recorded these potentials in a group of 27 healthy Japanese, aged 20-78 years, using all 4 stimulus/response combinations of auditory or somatosensory stimuli requiring a counting or button-press response. In an oddball paradigm we recorded N1(More)
An auditory discrimination paradigm was employed to elicit event-related brain potentials in 13 patients with Alzheimer's disease and 14 patients with multi-infarct dementia. The P300 latency was significantly prolonged in 12 patients with dementia compared with age-matched controls and showed a significant negative correlation with the score of Wechsler(More)
We have recorded movement-related cortical potentials (MRCPs) preceding voluntary finger extension from 10 subjects with Parkinson's disease and compared the results with those obtained from groups of young and old subjects described in the previous paper in this volume (Barrett et al. 1986). Three separate potential shifts preceding voluntary movement were(More)
Any relationship between measures of cognitive function and brain electrical activity would be of considerable importance in the objective assessment of patients suspected of intellectual impairment. In healthy subjects, we have found a strong correlation between the event-related potentials evoked by a digit probe identification task and scores on(More)
