Positron emission tomography with O-15-labeled water was used to study at rest the neurophysiological effects of bilateral external globus pallidus (GPe) deep brain stimulation in patients with Huntington's disease (HD). Five patients were compared with a control group in the on and off states of the stimulator. External globus pallidus stimulation(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)
Epileptic syndromes with continuous spikes and waves during sleep (CSWS) are characterized by an acute phase with the emergence of psychomotor deficits and CSWS activity and by a recovery phase in which patients' clinical condition improves together with the remission of CSWS activity. The pathophysiological mechanisms of how CSWS activity induces(More)
PURPOSE Metabolic changes have been described in the nonepileptic temporal lobe of patients with unilateral mesiotemporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) associated with hippocampal sclerosis (HS). To better understand the functional correlate of this metabolic finding, we have sought to characterize brain regions in patients with MTLE that show correlation between(More)
Previous studies investigating cerebral metabolic changes associated with continuous spike-waves during sleep (CSWS) compared the metabolism of children with CSWS with that of healthy adults, precluding any assessment in brain areas showing physiologic age-related metabolic changes. Here, we investigated the metabolic and connectivity changes characterizing(More)
Reporting the ink color of a written word when it is itself a color name incongruent with the ink color (e.g. “red” printed in blue) induces a robust interference known as the Stroop effect. Although this effect has been the subject of numerous functional neuroimaging studies, its neuronal substrate is still a matter of debate. Here, we investigated the(More)
