We describe the goals of the ATTEST project, which started in March 2002 as part of the Information Society Technologies (IST) programme, sponsored by the European Commission. In the 2-year project, several industrial and academic partners cooperate towards a flexible, 2D-compatible and commercially feasible 3D-TV system for broadcast environments. An(More)
We present a novel method, corticokinematic coherence (CKC), for functional mapping of the motor cortex by computing coherence between cortical magnetoencephalographic (MEG) signals and the kinematics of voluntary movements. Ten subjects performed self-paced flexion-extensions of the right-hand fingers at about 3 Hz, with a three-axis accelerometer attached(More)
In this paper, we discuss the challenge of 3DTV and present our requirements for a novel three-dimensional video format. We will show that the ad-hoc stereoscopic video format does not provide the necessary flexibility towards user interactivity and non-stereo based 3D displays. In order to enable an evolutionary scenario from 2D towards 3DTV, we will(More)
Ten patients with focal epilepsy were studied with magnetoencephalography (MEG) to determine if a new light-weight magnetically shielded room (lMSR) provides sufficient attenuation of magnetic interference to detect and localize the magnetic correlates of epileptic activity. Interictal MEG epileptic events co-localizing with the presumed location of the(More)
OBJECTIVE This prospective, bicentre, blinded, intention to treat study assessed the clinical added value of magnetic source imaging (MSI) in the presurgical evaluation of patients with refractory focal epilepsy (RFE). METHODS 70 consecutive patients with RFE (42 men; mean age 31.5 years, range 3-63) from two Belgian centres were prospectively included.(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the interictal epileptic discharges (IEDs) detection rate of magnetoencephalography (MEG) recordings performed in a new light-weight magnetic shielding (LMSR) concept in a large group of consecutive patients with presumed mesiotemporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE). METHODS Thirty-eight patients (23 women; age range: 6-63 years) with presumed(More)
Due to technical constraints, magnetoencephalography (MEG) is challenging in vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) patients. This study evaluates (1) the feasibility of MEG in VNS patients and (2) the added value of MEG in their presurgical evaluation (PE). Ten VNS patients were studied by MEG using the spatiotemporal signal space separation (tSSS) method.(More)
Reading epilepsy (RE) is an idiopathic reflex epilepsy syndrome characterized by perioral myoclonic jerks (PMJs) during reading associated with left-dominant frontotemporal spike-wave discharges (SWDs). To better understand the pathophysiology of this syndrome, we studied a 45-year-old patient using magnetic source imaging (MSI). The patient underwent two(More)
We studied online coupling between a reader's voice and a listener's cortical activity using a novel, ecologically valid continuous listening paradigm. Whole-scalp magnetoencephalographic (MEG) signals were recorded from 10 right-handed, native French-speaking listeners in four conditions: a female (Exp1f) and a male (Exp1m) reading the same text in French;(More)
To find out in which detail the kinematics of observed movements is represented in the viewer's brain, we searched for brain areas displaying coherent magnetoencephalographic (MEG) activity with observed repetitive hand movements. Whole-scalp MEG signals were recorded from 10 right-handed young adults who observed repetitive 3-Hz right-hand(More)
