The present study investigated the sensitivity of magnetoencephalography (MEG) for spikes depending on sensor type in patients with mesial temporal epileptic focus. We recorded MEG in 6 patients with mesial temporal epileptic focus using two sensor types (magnetometer and gradiometer) simultaneously. The number of spikes detected and the corresponding(More)
Mirror therapy is one of the promising rehabilitation therapeutic interventions but the neural basis of the therapeutic effect remains unknown. It has been reported that the 20-Hz rhythmic activity is induced in the primary motor cortex after median nerve stimulation and the amount of the induced activity is decreased when the primary motor cortex is(More)
Quantitative evaluation of the sensory disturbance of the tongue is important clinically. However, because the conventional electrophysiological approach to the peripheral nerve cannot be used in the mandible owing to the deep route of the lingual nerve, we applied evoked potentials in the central nervous system. Somatosensory evoked magnetic fields (SEFs)(More)
Salivary gland tumors are relatively uncommon and there exists a considerable diagnostic difficulty owing to their diverse histological features in individual lesions and the presence of a number of types and variants, in addition to overlapping histological patterns similar to those observed in different tumor entities. The classification is complex, but(More)
Mirror therapy is an effective technique for pain relief and motor function recovery. It has been demonstrated that magnetic 20-Hz activity is induced in the primary motor cortex (M1) after median nerve stimulation and that the amount of the stimulus-induced 20-Hz activity is decreased when the M1 is activated. In the present study, we investigated how the(More)
Using magnetoencephalography, we measured 20-Hz activity induced after the common peroneal nerve (CPN) stimulation in 15 healthy subjects during the execution of foot movement or its motor imagery, and examined whether the 20-Hz activity is suppressed during motor imagery of foot movement. The prominent 20-Hz activity was contralaterally induced in the(More)
A 70-year-old female underwent follow-up colonoscopy after colonic polypectomy. The colonoscopy revealed the presence of a 7-mm submucosal tumor in the sigmoid colon. The tumor surface was smooth and covered with normal mucosa. It was diagnosed as a submucosal tumor, and polypectomy was performed. Histopathological examination of the resected specimen(More)

The neural mechanisms underlying recognition of presented hand actions are not well understood. Rolandic rhythmic activity of about 20 Hz is reproducibly induced after median nerve stimulation and has been reported to be related to various types of movements including actual movement, motor imagery and action observation. We recorded neuromagnetic brain(More)
