Inherent differences in difficulty between on the beat (synchronization) and off the beat (syncopa-tion) coordination modes are well known. Synchronization is typically quite easy and, once begun, may be carried out with little apparent attention demand. Syncopation tends to be difficult, even though it has been described as a simple, phase-shifted version(More)
For low rhythmic rates (1.0 to approximately 2.0 Hz), subjects are able to successfully coordinate finger flexion with an external metronome in either a syncopated (between the beats) or synchronized (on each beat) fashion. Beyond this rate, however, syncopation becomes unstable and subjects spontaneously switch to synchronization to maintain a 1:1(More)
A full-head 143-channel superconducting quantum interference device was used to study changes occurring in the magnetic activity of the human brain during performance of an auditory-motor coordination task in which the rate of coordination was systematically increased. Previous research using the same task paradigm demonstrated that spontaneous switches in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate how learning induced increases in stability on a syncopation task are manifest in the dynamics of cortical activity. METHOD Magnetoencephalography was recorded from 143 sensors (CTF Systems, Inc). A pre-training procedure determined the critical frequency (F(c)) for each subject (n=4). Subjects either syncopated or synchronized to(More)

Most of the current in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer (IVF-ET) programs are university-based. The establishment of a successful ambulatory IVF program in association with a busy, two-man general obstetrics-gynecologic practice is described. Seventy-one infertile couples were screened between February 1 and October 15, 1983. Forty-three couples were(More)
We used a 61-channel electrode array to investigate the spatiotemporal dynamics of electroencephalographic (EEG) activity related to behavioral transitions in rhythmic sensorimotor coordination. Subjects were instructed to maintain a 1:1 relationship between repeated right index finger flexion and a series of periodically delivered tones (metronome) in a(More)
We have studied the effect of movement rate on MEG activity associated with self-paced finger movement in four subjects to determine whether the amplitude or latency of motor-evoked activity changes across a range of rates. Subjects performed a continuation paradigm at 21 distinct rates (range: 0.5–2.5 Hz) chosen because of their relevance for many types of(More)
Between February 1983 and January 1985, 206 laparoscopies were performed on 172 women following controlled ovarian hyperstimulation with human menopausal gonadotropin (hMG) and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Sixty-four clinical pregnancies advanced beyond the sixth week of gestation and were confirmed by ultrasound; and 37.2% of the patients conceived(More)
Objective: To investigate how learning induced increases in stability on a syncopation task are manifest in the dynamics of cortical activity. Method: Magnetoencephalography was recorded from 143 sensors (CTF Systems, Inc). A pre-training procedure determined the critical frequency (F c) for each subject (n ˆ 4).
