Despite negative neuroimaging findings in concussed athletes, studies indicate that the acceleration and deceleration of the brain after concussive impacts result in metabolic and electrophysiological alterations that may be attributable to changes in white matter resulting from biomechanical strain. In the present study we investigated the effects of(More)
BACKGROUND Sports-related concussions are a major public health concern affecting millions of individuals annually. Neurometabolic and microstructural alterations have been reported in the chronic phase following a concussion in male athletes, while no study has investigated these alterations in female athletes. METHODS Neurometabolic and microstructural(More)
PURPOSE Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a technique that allows continuous non-invasive monitoring of tissue oxygenation and haemodynamics in the brain. By using combined EEG-fNIRS recordings, we sought to better understand the pathophysiology of temporal lobe seizures. RESULTS Nine patients (5 males; mean age 35 years; range 11-56 years)(More)
PURPOSE To investigate spatial and metabolic changes associated with frontal lobe seizures. METHODS Functional near-infrared spectroscopy combined with electroencephalography (EEG-fNIRS) recordings of patients with confirmed nonlesional refractory frontal lobe epilepsy (FLE). KEY FINDINGS Eighteen seizures from nine patients (seven male, mean age 27(More)
Induced gamma-band response (iGBR) has been linked to coherent perception of images and is thought to represent the synchronisation of neuronal populations mediating binding of elements composing the image and the comparisons with memory for proper recognition. This study uses fragmented images with intracranial electroencephalography to investigate the(More)
In the mature adult brain, there are voice selective regions that are especially tuned to familiar voices. Yet, little is known about how the infant's brain treats such information. Here, we investigated, using electrophysiology and source analyses, how newborns process their mother's voice compared with that of a stranger. Results suggest that, shortly(More)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) combined with electroencephalography (fMRI-EEG) is a neuroimaging technique based on the blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) signal which has been shown to be useful in the study of epilepsy for the localization of the epileptogenic focus. Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) combined with EEG(More)
Simultaneous recordings of Electro-EncephaloGraphy (EEG) with Near InfraRed Spectroscopy (NIRS) allow measuring hemodynamic changes (changes in the concentration of oxy- and deoxyhemoglobin) at the time of epileptic discharges detected on scalp EEG. Two NIRS detection methods based on the General Linear Model (GLM) respectively in the time domain and in the(More)
Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) acquired with electroencephalography (EEG) is a relatively new non-invasive neuroimaging technique with potential for long term monitoring of the epileptic brain. Simultaneous EEG-fNIRS recording allows the spatio-temporal reconstruction of the hemodynamic response in terms of the concentration changes in(More)
Posterior epilepsies are mainly characterized clinically by visual symptoms. Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is an emerging non-invasive imaging technique that has the potential to monitor hemodynamic changes during epileptic activity. Combined with electroencephalography (EEG), 9 patients with posterior epilepsies were recorded using(More)
