In order to investigate stimulus-related and task-related electrophysiological activity relevant for face processing, event-related potentials (ERPs) from 58 electrodes at standard EEG sites were recorded while subjects performed a simple visual discrimination (control) task, in addition to various face processing tasks: recognition of previously learned(More)
PURPOSE Event-related potentials (ERPs) studies in human subjects have shown inter-individual response variations, probably linked to anatomical and functional brain disparities. The present study was conducted to compare the results obtained by a standard grand-average method and a single subject analysis of VEPs to faces. MATERIAL AND METHOD Fifty-eight(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the efficiency of median-nerve somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) monitoring in determining the optimal level of hypothermia in 62 consecutive patients operated on under deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (CA). METHODS CA was started at 1 degree C below the temperature at which both brainstem and cortical SEP components(More)
This paper presents an experimental setup for the wideband RF characterization of plasma Micro Hollow Cathode Sustained Discharge (MHCD). This microdischarge is studied as a candidate for integrated active component in antennas, using the change of permittivity caused by the presence of plasma. The measurement setup consists of a 50 Ω microstrip line with a(More)
AIM Median nerve somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) monitoring performed in deep hypothermic circulatory arrest is useful in determining when brain cooling may sufficiently permit circulatory arrest, and to immediately indicate when brain injury occurs. The aim of this retrospective study, including 58 patients, is to determine SEP sensitivity,(More)
