Measures of false positive (FP) and false negative (FN) localization error are defined to assess the accuracy of diagnostic imaging procedures. These measures involve the weighting of FP and FN pixels in accordance to their distances from the true localization of the lesion and the region detected as abnormal by the classifier. The distance-based… (More)
Recent theoretical analysis supports the possibility that using a linked earlobe reference in EEG studies might appreciatively distort the measured electrical field due to current flow over a low resistance path across the wire joining both ears. Such an effect would invalidate published quantitative EEG norms. Evidence for the balancing effect of this… (More)
In many situations various methods to analyze EEG/MEG data result in subspaces of the sensor space spanned by potentials of a set of sources. We propose a general model free method to decompose such a subspace into contributions from distinct sources. This unique decomposition can be achieved by first finding the respective subspace in source space using a… (More)
Two different descriptions of EEG maturation are compared: a broad-band spectral parameters (BBSPs) model and a recently developed xi-alpha (xi alpha) model. 'Developmental equations' were obtained for both parameter sets using 1 min, eyes closed EEG sample from 165 normal children (5-12 years old). At each age, the xi alpha parameter set described the… (More)
The Box-Cox power transform methodology for achieving Gaussianity is developed for a variety of models useful in neurometric statistical analysis. Algorithms are proposed for estimating the optimal transformations in the univariate and multivariate cases. Their use is briefly illustrated with neurometric data.
