We propose a modification of Wells et al. technique for bias field estimation and segmentation of magnetic resonance (MR) images. We show that replacing the class other, which includes all tissue not modeled explicitly by Gaussians with small variance, by a uniform probability density, and amending the expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm appropriately,(More)
A transient finite-element model has been developed to simulate an extracellular action potential recording in a tissue slice by a planar microelectrode array. The thin-film approximation of the active neuron membrane allows the simulation within single finite-element software of the intracellular and extracellular potential fields. In comparison with a(More)
In order to characterize objectively the succession of movements observed during motor seizures, inertial and magnetic sensors were placed on epileptic patients. Video recordings synchronized with motion recordings were analyzed visually during seizures and divided, for each limb, into events corresponding to different classes of motor manifestations. For(More)
BACKGROUND Responsive deep brain stimulation (rDBS) has been recently proposed to block epileptic seizures at onset. Yet, long-term stability of brain responses to such kind of stimulation is not known. OBJECTIVE To quantify the neural adaptation to repeated rDBS as measured by the changes of anti-epileptic efficacy of bilateral DBS of the substantia(More)
The cardio-respiratory signal is a fundamental vital sign to assess a person's health. Additionally, the cardio-respiratory signal gives a great deal of information to healthcare providers wishing to monitor healthy individuals. This paper proposes a method to detect the respiratory waveform from an accelerometer strapped onto the chest. A system was(More)
In this paper, three triaxis accelerometers positioned on the wrists and the head of epileptic patients submitted to long-term video electroencephalographic monitoring as part of presurgical investigation are evaluated to characterize the different classes of motor manifestations observed during seizures. Quadratic discriminant classifiers are trained on(More)
The aim of this paper is to present the collection of attitude sensor data from an epilepsy monitoring unit and the results of standard exploration using principal component analysis. The collection of data from attitude sensors positioned on three limbs of epileptic patients at their bedside is described. The analysis of the data focuses, on one hand, on(More)
