Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a neuromodulation protocol that can facilitate or inhibit cortical excitability in particular areas of the brain. Although recent studies have reported that tDCS can successfully modulate the excitability of various brain sites, outcomes of tDCS were not consistent between subjects even when identical(More)
INTRODUCTION Precise localization of epileptogenic zones is essential for the successful surgical treatment of refractory epilepsy including Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS). The surgical resection areas are generally determined by epileptologists based on diverse neuroimaging modalities; however, exact epileptogenic zones cannot be accurately localized in(More)
We carried out an magnetoencephalography (MEG) study to record cortical responses elicited in the left hemisphere by ending verb phrases, which had syntactic or semantic anomalies, in Korean sentences of subject-object-verb order. Using the high temporal and spatial resolution of MEG, the study was aimed at identifying neural activities that occur during a(More)
While brain computer interface (BCI) can be employed with patients and healthy subjects, there are problems that must be resolved before BCI can be useful to the public. In the most popular motor imagery (MI) BCI system, a significant number of target users (called "BCI-Illiterates") cannot modulate their neuronal signals sufficiently to use the BCI system.(More)
Simultaneous magnetoencephalography (MEG) and electroencephalography (EEG) analysis is known generally to yield better localization performance than a single modality only. For simultaneous analysis, MEG and EEG data should be combined to maximize synergistic effects. Recently, beamformer for simultaneous MEG/EEG analysis was proposed to localize both(More)
While dopamine is likely to modulate hippocampal synaptic plasticity, there has been little information about how dopamine affects synaptic transmission in the hippocampus. The expression of IEGs including c-fos has been associated with late phase LTP in the CA1 region of the hippocampus. The induction of c-fos by dopaminergic receptor activation in the rat(More)
We discuss the optimal arrangement of detectors for a 52-channel magnetocardiogram (MCG) system measuring tangential components of the cardiac magnetic fields. Nowadays, most MCG instruments are designed to cover the whole heart area to maximize the information available from the myocardial magnetic field in a simultaneous measurement. In such a system,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the usefulness of three-dimensional (3D) scalp EEG source imaging (ESI) in partial epilepsy in comparison with the results of presurgical evaluation, magnetoencephalography (MEG), and electrocorticography (ECoG). METHODS The epilepsy syndrome of 27 partial epilepsy patients was determined by(More)
