Previously published methods correct eye artifacts by subtracting proportions of the EOG from EEG electrodes. The implicit assumption made by these methods is that the EOG signals are a good measure of eye activity and contain no EEG. In this paper a new multiple source eye correction (MSEC) method of eye artifact treatment based on multiple source analysis(More)
Event-related potentials (ERPs) recorded from the human scalp can provide important information about how the human brain normally processes information and about how this processing may go awry in neurological or psychiatric disorders. Scientists using or studying ERPs must strive to overcome the many technical problems that can occur in the recording and(More)
Using a combination of 3 suitably located dipoles in a homogeneous sphere, the scalp potential due to a dipole source in a 4-shell spherical head model can be approximated with a high degree of precision and a more than 30-fold increase in computing speed. Magnitudes and locations of the 3 equivalent dipoles can be fitted in a homogeneous sphere to data(More)
BACKGROUND The contingent negative variation (CNV) is considered to reflect prefrontal functioning and can be observed before manual and ocular motor responses. Schizophrenic patients exhibit reduced CNV amplitudes in tasks requiring manual motor responses. A number of studies has also found normal prosaccades, but delayed antisaccades and an augmented rate(More)
When evaluating interictal spikes using dipole source analysis it is important to account for multiple sources and the overlapping background EEG. Analyses of spike peaks may be modeling only propagated sources. Careful filtering of averaged spike data and multiple source analysis can provide useful information about the onset of epileptiform activity. A(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the scalp topography of the potentials related to saccades and blinks. METHODS The scalp topographies of the potentials associated with saccades and blinks were recorded in 60 subjects. The topographies were analyzed using both source components and attenuation factors, with each factor representing the fraction of the potential(More)
Interaction of simultaneous tactile input at two finger sites in primary (SI) and secondary somatosensory cortex (SII) was studied by whole-head magnetoencephalography. Short pressure pulses were delivered to fingers of the right and left hand at an interstimulus interval of 1.6 s. The first phalanx of the left digit 1 and four other sites were stimulated(More)
Structural and functional asymmetries of the temporal lobe affect language development and may also play a role in a variety of disorders, ranging from specific language impairment to schizophrenia. Whole-head neuromagnetometers allow the noninvasive measurement of functional asymmetries since activity from both hemispheres is recorded simultaneously. In(More)
Average EOGs were recorded from 4 subjects for vertical and horizontal eye movements of 15 degrees away from and back to a central fixation point, and for eyeblinks while looking at the fixation point. Using spatio-temporal dipole modelling, several alternative dipole models of the electrical activity of the eyes were compared. A reasonable fit was only(More)
