Previous studies have shown differential event-related potentials (ERPs) to fearful and happy/neutral facial expressions. To investigate whether the brain systems underlying these ERP differences are sensitive to the intensity of fear and happiness, behavioral recognition accuracy and reaction times as well as ERPs were measured while observers categorized(More)
Segmentation software is described, developed for medical image processing and run on Windows. The software applies basic image processing techniques through a graphical user interface. For particular applications, such as brain lesion segmentation, the software enables the combination of different segmentation techniques to improve its efficiency. The(More)
A large number of computerized conductivity models of the human thorax have been created to study bioelectric phenomena in human beings. Devised models have varied greatly in the level of anatomical detail incorporated thus restricting the accuracy and validity of conducted simulations. This paper introduces a highly detailed anatomically accurate(More)
Impedance cardiography (ICG) offers a safe, noninvasive, and inexpensive method to track stroke volume estimates over long periods of time. Several modified ICG measurement configurations have been suggested where for convenience or improved performance the standard band electrodes are replaced with electrocardiogram electrodes. This report assesses the(More)
There is an evolving need for new information available by employing patient tailored anatomically accurate computer models of the electrical properties of the human body. Because construction of a computer model can be difficult and laborious to perform sufficiently well, devised models have varied greatly in the level of anatomical accuracy incorporated(More)
Whole-body impedance cardiography (ICGWB) has been proposed as a feasible means of measuring cardiac output (CO). However, the source distribution of heart-related impedance variations in the whole body is not known. To establish how much of a signal originates in each segment of the body and what the contribution of each is to stroke volume (SV) in ICGWB,(More)
Textile sensors, when embedded into clothing, can provide new ways of monitoring physiological signals, and improve the usability and comfort of such monitoring systems in the areas of medical, occupational health and sports. However, good electrical and mechanical contact between the electrode and the skin is very important, as it often determines the(More)
Although faces are typically perceived in the context of human interaction, face processing is commonly studied by displaying faces on a computer screen. This study on event-related potential examined whether the processing of faces differs depending on whether participants are viewing faces live or on a computer screen. In both the conditions, the(More)
The effects of tissue resistivities on EEG amplitudes were studied using an anatomically accurate computer model based on the finite difference method (FDM) and lead field analysis covering the whole brain area with 180,000 nodes. Five tissue types and three lead fields were considered for analysis. The changes in sensitivity distribution are directly(More)
