BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Writer's cramp (WC) is a focal task-specific dystonia of the hand which is increasingly being accepted as a network disorder. Non-invasive cortical stimulation using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has produced therapeutic benefits in some of these patients. This study aimed to visualize the motor network(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The frequency of seizures is an important factor that can alter functional brain connectivity. Analysis of this factor in patients with epilepsy is complex because of disease- and medication-induced confounders. Because patients with hot-water epilepsy generally are not on long-term drug therapy, we used seed-based connectivity(More)
Measuring neuro-haemodynamic correlates in the brain of epilepsy patients using EEG-fMRI has opened new avenues in clinical neuroscience, as these are two complementary methods for understanding brain function. In this study, we investigated three patients with drug-resistant reflex epilepsy using EEG-fMRI. Different types of reflex epilepsy such as eating,(More)
BACKGROUND Resting state (task independent) Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) has opened a new avenue in cognitive studies and has found practical clinical applications. MATERIALS AND METHODS Resting fMRI analysis was performed in six patients with brain tumor in the motor cortex. For comparison, task-related mapping of the motor cortex was(More)
Human memory is an enigmatic component of cognition which many researchers have attempted to comprehend. Accumulating studies on functional connectivity see brain as a complex dynamic unit with positively and negatively correlated networks in perfect coherence during a task. We aimed to examine coherence of network connectivity during visual memory encoding(More)
Understanding the pathophysiology of reflex epilepsy using simultaneous EEG-fMRI. Using motor imagery to study the neural substrates of dynamic balance. Evidence that the negative BOLD response is neuronal in origin: a simultaneous EEG-BOLD-CBF study in humans. Increased sensitivity of fast BOLD fMRI with a subject-specific hemodynamic response function and(More)
To explore the neuroanatomical correlates of primary writing tremor (PWT) and the role of cerebellum, using advanced structural neuroimaging. Till date, there are no studies exploring the gray and white matter changes using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in PWT. Ten male patients with PWT were evaluated clinically and with(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine cortical grey matter (GM) changes and their clinical and biochemical correlates in patients with Wilson's disease using voxel based morphometry (VBM). METHODS Clinical and imaging data of 10 patients (all male, mean age 16.0 ± 6.3years) with Wilson's Disease were analyzed. T1W volumetric MRI data of patients without obvious(More)
