Abstract Neuromagnetic responses were recorded to frequent "standard tones of l000 Hz and to infrequent 1100-Hz "deviant" tones with a 24-channel planar SQUID gradiometer. Stimuli were presented at constant interstimulus intervals (ISIs) ranging from 0.75 to 12 sec. The standards evoked a prominent 100-msec response, N100m, which increased in amplitude with(More)
The effect of selective attention on activity of the right human auditory cortex was studied with a 24-channel planar SQUID-gradiometer. Two conditions were used, favoring either a late attention effect following N100m, or an early effect, overlapping with N100m. In experiment 1 (15 subjects), a randomized tone sequence of 1 and 3 kHz tones was delivered to(More)
We recorded cerebral magnetic fields to electric stimulation of the tongue in 7 healthy adults. The two main deflections of the response peaked around 55 msec (P55m) and 140 msec (N140m). During both of them the magnetic field pattern, determined with a 7- or 24-channel SQUID magnetometer, suggested a dipolar current source. The topography of P55m can be(More)
In 8 subjects we recorded multichannel magnetic responses to pitch changes in single 50 msec tones and in tone pairs (oddball paradigm; interstimulus interval 745 msec). Either "A" (1 kHz) was standard (90%) and "B" (1.2 kHz) deviant (10%), or "AA" was standard and "AB" deviant in pairs with onset asynchrony of 75 msec. Subject did not pay attention to the(More)
In this paper we present a veriiable voting protocol which removes the possibility of massive coercion or vote buying. In contrast with other previous proposals, in our protocol the mobility of voters is not restricted in any way, keeping the voting scheme as a real network application. This is achieved through the use of tamper-resistant smartcards and the(More)
Low transverse incision according to Mouchel is an interesting technique in Gynecology-Obstetrics. Two closure methods are generally used but both inevitably leave a dead-space in the subaponevrotic zone. A simple technical variation, which is rapid and easily reproducible, allows to overcome this inconvenience.
