Event-related potential (ERP) studies report that early components P120, N170 and VPP are associated with face processing. Several lines of evidence suggest that VPP is the positive counterpart of N170, and they are generated by the same brain sources. However, whether P120 has a negative counterpart and the relations among these early components (i.e.(More)
Psychophysical studies have verified the possibility of recovering the visual ability by the form of low-resolution format of images, that is, phosphene-based representations. Our previous study has found that early visual processing for phosphene patterns is configuration based. This study further investigated the configural processing mechanisms of(More)
Single unit discharges were extracellularly recorded from the neurons in the lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN) and responses of the recorded units to antidromic stimulation of the subfornical organ (SFO) and to orthodromic stimulation of the nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) were observed in urethane-anesthetized rats. Following electrical stimulation of(More)
Electrophysiological characteristics were described for neurons of the parabrachial nucleus (PBN) which receive baroreceptive and somatosensory inputs in the rat. Following focal electrical stimulation in the ipsilateral caudal nucleus of the tractus solitarii (NTS), the firing rates of these neurons were increased in 94 (55.6%), and decreased in 38(More)
