This study reports a combined scalp current density (SCD) and dipole model analysis of the N1 wave of the auditory event-related potentials evoked by 1 kHz tone bursts delivered every second. The SCD distributions revealed: (i) a sink and a source of current reversing in polarity at the inferotemporal level of each hemiscalp, compatible with neural(More)
Scalp current density analysis of the auditory evoked response to 1-kHz tone bursts delivered at various interstimulus intervals (ISIs) (from 1 s to 2 min in separate runs) shows that two different frontal components can be observed and functionally dissociated in the N1 time range: one is elicited for all ISIs, peaks at about 95 ms poststimulus, and has a(More)
This paper presents a study of the intrinsic localization error bias due to the use of a spherical geometry model on EEG simulated data obtained from realistically shaped models. About 2000 dipoles were randomly chosen on the segmented cortex surface of a particular subject. Forward calculations were performed using a uniformly meshed model for each dipole(More)
The auditory P2 wave has been studied by means of scalp potential and scalp current density (SCD) mapping. Two components were described. One, peaking around 150 ms, probably reflects a major activity in both supra temporal planes as revealed by SCD maps (P150). The other is a bilateral temporo-parietal component peaking around 220 ms (P220). These two(More)
In order to model the brain's electrical activity realistically, the finite element method has been used to compute the potential distribution due to a current dipole. This approach has the advantage over the boundary element method of being able to consider anisotropies of the different conducting sub-volumes. The forward solution has been evaluated in the(More)
An in vitro system was used to study the regulation of lipoprotein lipase (LPL) activity in bovine adipose tissue. The utilization of two energetic and lipogenic substrates, acetate and glucose, and the activity of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH), an enzyme involved in de novo lipogenesis, were also studied. Nine nonlactating, nonpregnant Holstein(More)
Odor-evoked activity in the olfactory bulb displays both spatial and temporal organization. The difficulty when assessing spatio-temporal dynamics of olfactory representation is to find a method that reconciles the appropriate resolution for both dimensions. Imaging methods based on optical recordings can reach high temporal and spatial resolution but are(More)
Reaction times and event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded during a task requiring subjects to decide whether two sequentially presented polygons had the same shape regardless of differences in orientation. Reaction times increased approximately linearly with angular departure from upright orientation, which suggests that mental rotation was involved(More)
