Cortical sources of neuromagnetic responses to noise bursts were compared in 7 healthy humans. The earliest response, P40m, peaking about 40 ms after the stimulus onset, was followed by a prominent deflection in the opposite direction at about 100 ms (N100m) and by another peak at 200 ms (P200m). A sustained field, seen near the end of the 400- to 550-ms(More)
We have compared spatial patterns of somatosensory evoked magnetic fields (SEFs) to stimulation of the ulnar and median nerves at the wrist. An oddball paradigm was used additionally to examine whether an infrequent change in the stimulation site would alter the field pattern. The response consisted of 3 parts: an early small deflection at 22-28 msec, a(More)
The temporo-parietal association cortex around the caudal end of the Sylvian fissure was studied with the single cell recording technique in three awake behaving Macaca speciosa-monkeys. Of the 197 cells isolated, 5% were active only during the monkey's own movements, mostly during head rotation, and 95% were responsive to sensory stimulation: 54% to(More)
The most anterior part of area 7 of awake, behaving macaque monkeys was investigated using single cell recording technique. Eighty-five cells from three hemispheres of two monkeys were isolated and studied. These cells showed more complex functional properties than the cells in the primary and secondary cortical fields. Of the cells 61% responded to(More)
The expression of "naming," "commanding," "angry," "frightened," "pleading," "astonished," "satisfied," "admiring," "scornful," and "sad" was with the word [saara] spoken by 12 subjects. Using the same connotations, the 120 utterances were categorized by 73 listeners. Most samples were agreed on by 50%-99% of the judges. Most samples of "astonished,"(More)
The vowel [a:] in a test word, judged normal or dysphonic, was examined with the Self-Organizing Map; the artificial neural network algorithm of Kohonen. The algorithm produces two-dimensional representations (maps) of speech. Input to the acoustic maps consisted of 15-component spectral vectors calculated at 9.83-msec intervals from short-time power(More)
We recorded evoked magnetic fields from the human auditory cortex to noise/square wave sequences. Two prominent deflections were observed: one 100 msec after the noise onset (N100m) and another 100 msec after the noise/square wave transition (N100m'). The amplitude of N100m' increased with decrease in square wave frequency from 2 kHz to 0.125 kHz and with(More)
Copulatory behavior of wild-born individually caged laboratory stumptail monkeys (Macaca arctoides) was investigated. The monkeys were paired daily for 20 min, and altogether 536 pairings were observed. The influence of the female's menstrual cycle and social factors of male sexual activity was determined. The reactions of the other monkeys during a(More)
The self-organizing map, a neural network algorithm of Kohonen, was used for the detection of coarticulatory variation of fricative [s] preceding vowels [a:], [i:], and [u:]. The results were compared with the psychoacoustic classification of the same samples to find out whether the map had extracted perceptually meaningful features of [s]. The map(More)
The lateral part of area 7, area 7b, of alert, behaving macaque monkeys was investigated using transdural microelectrode recording technique. Two hundred twenty-eight cells from five hemispheres of four monkeys were isolated and studied. The functional properties of 2% of the cells isolated remained unidentified. Functions of the identified cells were(More)
