As a token of my deep appreciation for their professionalism and dedication to the ideals of our magazine, I hereby acknowledge with the list below the many reviewers that have reviewed tirelessly papers for IEEE Network during the past year. Their behind the scenes work provides the strong foundation upon which the quality papers that you read in our(More)
EEG-based source localization techniques use scalp-potential data to estimate the location of underlying neural activity. EEG source location reconstruction requires the assumption of a source model and the assumption of a conductive head model. Brain lesions can present conductivity values that are dramatically different from those of surrounding normal(More)
Equations are derived for the electric potentials [electroencephalogram (EEG)] produced by dipolar sources in a multiregion bicentric-spheres volume-conductor head model. Being the equations valid for an arbitrary number of regions, our proposal is a generalization of many spherical models presented so far in literature, each of those regarded as a(More)
Accurate EEG source reconstruction needs an appropriate volume conductor head model including, in the presence of a morphological brain lesion, a lesion compartment. Lesion electrical properties (conductivity) can not be measured in vivo and need to be retrieved from literature on the base of lesion type identification, performed by means of diagnostic(More)
Bioelectrical phenomena spread within the whole body (the conductor medium) independently of electrical source position within the body. However, under certain circumstances, it is possible to limit the volume within which the study can be done. Given its high resistivity, the skull limits the spread of bioelectrical currents due to brain sources and it(More)
Brain electrical activity effects spread (spatially) over the whole head volume conductor. Electric scalp potentials (EEG) are the measurable evidences of such activity. EEG forward problem solution involves computing the scalp potentials at a finite set of sensor locations for a source configuration in a specified volume conductor model of the head or of(More)
Accurate head modeling is required to properly simulate bioelectric phenomena in 3-D as well as to estimate the 3-D bioelectric activity starting from superficial bioelectric measurements and 3-D imaging. Aiming to build an accurate and realistic representation of the volume conductor of the head, also the anisotropy of head tissues should be taken into(More)
Source localization techniques based on electroencephalography (EEG) use scalp potential data to infer the location of brain neural activity. A volume conductor model describing the electrical properties of the human head is needed. Lesions have conductivity considerably different from that of normal brain and should be included in the head model because(More)
We present a theory based on Green's function formalism to study magnetism in disordered Heisenberg systems with long range exchange integrals. Disordered Green's function are decoupled within Tyablicov scheme and solved with a CPA method. The CPA method is the extension of Blackmann-Esterling-Beck approach to system with environmental disorder term which(More)
Inverse solution techniques based on electroencephalographic (EEG) measurements are a powerful mean of gaining knowledge about brain functioning, being used to estimate location, orientation and strength of neural electrical sources of brain activity. A model of the head, a model of the source and an electric-field computational method are necessary to(More)
