EEG recordings during mental calculation and a control task (with presentation of stimuli with similar physical characteristics to the arithmetic symbols) were obtained in 10 subjects. Narrow band analyses of the EEG and distributed sources for each EEG frequency were calculated using variable resolution electromagnetic tomography. Significant differences(More)
In this study we demonstrate the existence of different patterns of EEG activation during the performance of 4 different tasks involving different components of mental calculation in normal subjects. The EEG was recorded in all monopolar leads of the 10/20 system using linked ear lobes as reference. Absolute and relative power were calculated in the delta(More)
In previous papers we proposed that an increase in delta EEG activity during mental tasks might be related to an increase in subjects' attention to internal processing. In this paper we have made a narrow band analysis to detect those EEG frequencies that change selectively during the performance of a mental task that requires attention to internal(More)
Although poor readers (PR) are considered the major group among reading-disabled children, there are not event-related potentials (ERP) studies reported of PR on the subject. In this study, attentional and memory processes were studied in an auditory oddball task in PR and normal controls. ERP to auditory stimuli were recorded in 19 leads of the 10/20(More)
PURPOSE The best treatment modalities for large proximal ureteral stones are controversial, and include extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, ureterolithotripsy, percutaneous nephrolithotripsy, laparoscopic ureterolithotomy and open surgery. To the best of our knowledge extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, semirigid ureterolithotripsy and laparoscopic(More)
EEG coherence between all pairwise combinations of the 10/20 system was studied in two groups: control subjects and patients with space-occupying brain lesions. Coherence was separately computed for the delta, theta, alpha and beta bands. Comparisons between both groups showed highly significant differences in all bands. In the patients with lower coherence(More)
The relationship of reading-writing ability and EEG coherences was studied in 84 subjects from two age groups 7.0-8.9 and 9-11.2 years old. All children were divided into three groups according to their performance on a pedagogical test: ped1, normal children; ped2, children with mild problems; ped3, children with reading-writing disability. The following(More)
A follow-up study on EEG coherence values was carried out with 46 school-age children divided into three pedagogical groups considering their reading and writing abilities (normal subject and children with mild and with serious reading-writing problems). EEGs were recorded at rest, with eyes closed in 15 referential derivations that gave 105 possible(More)
In a previous paper, using the same test for the evaluation of reading-writing abilities, Harmony et al. (1990b) reported that children with severe difficulties had more delta in fronto-temporal regions, and this was interpreted as a sign of underlying cerebral dysfunction. Children with severe and minor difficulties in the test had more diffuse theta(More)
This study shows that incorrect responses are preceded by different EEG characteristics than correct responses, and that these differences appear in specific brain regions that participate in each particular task. EEGs were recorded in children during three different tasks: color discrimination (CDT), verbal working memory (VWM), and word categorization(More)
