I am submitting herewith a dissertation written by Joseph Curtis McBride entitled "Dynamic Complexity and Causality Analysis of Scalp EEG for Detection of Cognitive Deficits." I have examined the final electronic copy of this dissertation for form and content and recommend that it be accepted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of(More)
OBJECTIVES In this preliminary study, the auditory P3b response, when measured during a visually distracting task, was investigated as an index of change in cognitive function resulting from exposure to subconcussive impacts (SCIs) in collision sports over time. METHODS Both pre- and postseason P3b responses were examined in seven first-year(More)
"Classic" P3b auditory oddball paradigms are insensitive to subtle deficits. An auditory oddball paradigm paired with visual distracters was used to compare football players with history of concussion, football players without history of concussion, and non-contact sport athletes. As hypothesized, increasing complexity of, and attention to, visual(More)
OBJECTIVES The primary aim of this study was to assess the effects of continuous, visual distracters that change systematically in complexity on P300 responses generated by an auditory oddball paradigm. In addition, the type of attention given to the visual distracter was explored. It was hypothesized that P300 amplitudes would be smallest, latencies(More)
We describe the ontogeny of feline temporal lobe epilepsy after amygdala kindling in 24 cats, aged 2.5 months to over 1 year. In so doing, we report the first experimental model of spontaneous epilepsy in immature animals. Preadolescent kittens (n = 12 less than or equal to 6.5 months) are far more likely to develop epilepsy, indexed by spontaneous(More)
