Event-related covariance (ERC) patterns were computed from pre-stimulus and feedback intervals of a bimanual, visuomotor judgment task performed by 7 right-handed men. Late contingent negative variation (CNV) ERC patterns that preceded subsequently accurate right- or left-hand responses differed from patterns that preceded subsequently inaccurate responses.(More)
To date, it has been thought that cannabinoid receptors in CNS are primarily of the CB1R subtype, with CB2R expressed only in glia and peripheral tissues. However, evidence for the expression of CB2 type cannabinoid receptors at neuronal sites in the CNS is building through anatomical localization of receptors and mRNA in neurons and behavioural studies of(More)
In seven right-handed adults, the brain electrical patterns before accurate performance differed from the patterns before inaccurate performance. Activity overlying the left frontal cortex and the motor and parietal cortices contralateral to the performing hand preceded accurate left- or right-hand performance. Additional strong activity overlying midline(More)
A new method that measures between-channel, event-related covariances (ERCs) from scalp-recorded brain signals has been developed. The method was applied to recordings of 26 EEG channels from 7 right-handed men performing a bimanual visuomotor judgment task that required fine motor control. Covariance and time-delay measures were derived from pairs of(More)
A new method of ERP estimation with minimal statistical assumptions is presented. A mathematical pattern classification procedure is used to select trials with discriminable event-related signals in a time interval of interest. A method of forming a reference 'baseline' is also presented. Stimulus-registered and response-registered 'enhanced' ERP averages(More)
Cannabinoids modulate inhibitory GABAergic neurotransmission in many brain regions. Within the temporal lobe, cannabinoid receptors are highly expressed, and are located presynaptically at inhibitory terminals. Here, we have explored the role of type-1 cannabinoid receptors (CB1Rs) at the level of inhibitory synaptic currents and field-recorded network(More)
Ethosuximide is the drug of choice for treating generalized absence seizures, but its mechanism of action is still a matter of debate. It has long been thought to act by disrupting a thalamic focus via blockade of T-type channels and, thus, generation of spike-wave activity in thalamocortical pathways. However, there is now good evidence that generalized(More)
