Spatial component analysis is often used to explore multidimensional time series data whose sources cannot be measured directly. Several methods may be used to decompose the data into a set of spatial components with temporal loadings. Component selection is of crucial importance, and should be supported by objective criteria. In some applications, the use(More)
Detection of illusory contours (ICs) such as Kanizsa figures is known to depend primarily upon the lateral occipital complex. Yet there is no universal agreement on the role of the primary visual cortex in this process; some existing evidence hints that an early stage of the visual response in V1 may involve relative suppression to Kanizsa figures compared(More)
A method was developed for the noninvasive mapping of the primary motor cortex in humans. Magnetic responses evoked by repeated voluntary movements of the right index finger were studied in 18 healthy right-handed subjects. Finger movement periods were assessed using accelerometer signals. Continuous evoked brain magnetic activity recorded in the subjects(More)
A method of non-invasive human primary motor cortex mapping has been developed. In 18 healthy right-handed subjects magnetic brain responses caused by repeated voluntary left or right index finger movements were studied. Movement onsets were derived from the accelerometer signal. Recordings of magnetic activity throughout whole experimental sessions in all(More)
