OBJECT There is continuous interest in the monitoring of language function during tumor resection around the frontotemporal regions of the dominant hemisphere. The aim of this study was to visualize language-related subcortical connections, such as the arcuate fasciculus (AF) by diffusion tensor (DT) imaging-based tractography. METHODS Twenty-two patients(More)
OBJECTIVE The characterization of spatial network dynamics is desirable for a better understanding of seizure physiology. The goal of this work is to develop a computational method for identifying transient spatial patterns from intracranial electroencephalographic (iEEG) data. METHODS Starting with bivariate synchrony measures, such as phase correlation,(More)
Phytochemical investigation of the 1-BuOH-soluble fraction of the MeOH extract of Alangium premnifolium resulted in the isolation of ten megastigmane glycosides, of which, two, (6R,9R)-3-oxo-alpha-ionol apiofuranosylglucopyranoside and roseoside with (6S,9R)-blumeol A as an aglycone were known. The structures of the eight new compounds were determined by(More)
OBJECTIVE It is known that functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) are sensitive to the frontal and temporal language function, respectively. Therefore, we established combined use of fMRI and MEG to make reliable identification of the global language dominance in pathological brain conditions. METHODS We investigated(More)
OBJECT The aim of this study was better preoperative planning and direct application to intraoperative procedures through accurate coregistration of diffusion-tensor (DT) imaging-based tractography results and anatomical three-dimensional magnetic resonance images and subsequent importation of the combined images to a neuronavigation system (functional(More)
The authors represent a cooperative group of 15 institutions that examined the feasibility of using metabolic features observed in vivo with 1H-magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy to characterize brain tumors of the glial type. The institutions provided blinded, centralized MR spectroscopy data processing long with independent central review of MR(More)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) were performed in six subjects during self-paced finger movement performance, tactile somatosensory stimulation and binaural auditory stimulation using identical stimulation paradigms. Both functional imaging modalities localized brain activity in adjacent areas of anatomically(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we visualized the eloquent motor system including the somatosensory-motor cortex and corticospinal tract on a neuronavigation system, integrating magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and anisotropic diffusion-weighted MRI (ADWI). METHODS Four patients with brain lesions adjacent to the(More)
Dissociated language functions are largely invalidated by standard techniques such as the amobarbital test and cortical stimulation. Language studies in which magnetoencephalography (MEG) and functional magnetic resonance (fMR) imaging are used to record data while the patient performs lexicosemantic tasks have enabled researchers to perform independent(More)
Three patients undergoing surgery for cerebello-pontine angle meningioma suffered transient episodes of asystole. All patients exhibited return to the previous heart rate with cessation of surgical manipulations and administration of anticholinergic agents. These reactions were apparently elicited by activation of the trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) by direct(More)
