The event-related potential (ERP) effects of visual spatial attention and letter target detection for stimuli presented against a (nonisoluminant) dark background or against an isoluminant grey background were investigated. The goal was to study how the perceptual variable of luminance would influence early ERP reflections of selective attention. Such(More)
Two experiments were performed in which the effects of selective spatial attention on the ERPs elicited by unilateral and bilateral stimulus arrays were compared. In Experiment 1, subjects received a series of grating patterns. In the unilateral condition these gratings were presented one at a time, randomly to the right or left of fixation. In the(More)
It was hypothesized that color selection consists of two stages. The first stage represents a feature specific selection in neural populations specialized in processing color. The second stage constitutes feature non-specific selections, related to executive attentional processes and/or motor processes. This hypothesis was tested by investigating the(More)
An on-line haematocrit measurement in extracorporeal circuits might be useful under some clinical circumstances (e.g. haemodialysis or cardiac surgery). As no such measurement exists, a device has been developed that makes it possible to detect haematocrit (Ht) continuously without a loss of blood. It is a multi-frequency system for the detection of(More)
In this contribution we show how neuroimaging methods can augment behavioural methods to discover processing stages. Event Related Brain Potentials (ERPs), Brain Electrical Source Analysis (BESA) and regional changes in cerebral blood flow (rCBF) do not necessarily require behavioural responses. With the aid of rCBF we are able to discover several cortical(More)

All modern vapor anesthetics are capable of carbon monoxide (CO) production as a result of interaction with desiccated strong base containing carbon dioxide absorbents. In desiccated absorbents, desflurane produces the highest concentrations of CO. Sevoflurane is known to produce the nephrotoxic compound A (CA) independently from water content of the carbon(More)
Two female patients are described with acute bilateral central scotomata with preservation of central vision following spinal anesthesia. Both patients had a temporary drop in systemic blood pressure and underwent caesarian section with moderate blood loss. In order to explain the visual field defects extensive ophthalmological examination and CT-scanning(More)
Twenty-eight volunteers were instructed to attend stimuli presented at one side of the computer screen and to ignore stimuli presented at the other side. Both attended and unattended stimulus series consisted of targets (25%) and nontargets (75%) defined on the basis of stimulus shape. Attended targets required a binary choice based on stimulus color.(More)
Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy at T2-T4 is an effective and safe treatment for primary axillary and palmar hyperhidrosis and facial blushing refractory to conventional treatment. T2 and T4 ganglia however are in the direct pathway of sympathetic innervation of the heart and part of the vasomotor nerves. In this study we investigate possible changes in(More)
