Magnetoencephalography-theory, instrumentation, and applications to noninvasive studies of the working human brain
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is a noninvasive technique for investigating neuronal activity in the living human brain. The time resolution of the method is better than 1 ms and the spatialExpand
Spatiotemporal characteristics of sensorimotor neuromagnetic rhythms related to thumb movement
It is hypothesize that the 10-Hz signal is a true somatosensory rhythm whereas the 20-Hz activity is essentially somatomotor in origin. Expand
Activation of human primary motor cortex during action observation: a neuromagnetic study.
The recorded neuromagnetic oscillatory activity of the human primary motor cortex is activated during observation as well as execution of motor tasks, which has implications for a better understanding of the machinery underlying action recognition in humans. Expand
Cortical control of human motoneuron firing during isometric contraction.
It is suggested that the motor cortex drives the spinal motoneuronal pool during sustained contractions, with the observed cortical rhythmic activity influencing the timing of efferent commands. Expand
Impaired processing of rapid stimulus sequences in dyslexia
It is suggested that 'sluggish attentional shifting' (SAS) can account for the impaired processing of rapid stimulus sequences in dyslexia and within this novel framework attention-related prolongation of input chunks is decisive for many small deficits found in Dyslexic subjects. Expand
Removal of magnetoencephalographic artifacts with temporal signal‐space separation: Demonstration with single‐trial auditory‐evoked responses
The results demonstrate that tSSS is a robust and efficient method for removing a wide range of different types of interference signals in neuromagnetic multichannel measurements. Expand
Functional Organization of the Human First and Second Somatosensory Cortices: a Neuromagnetic Study
Multichannel neuromagnetic recordings were used to differentiate signals from the human first (SI) and second (SII) somatosensory cortices and to define representations of body surface in them. TheExpand
Cognitive response profile of the human fusiform face area as determined by MEG.
It is concluded that the fusiform gyrus may selectively encode faces at 165 ms, transforming sensory input for further processing, and may use these features in constructing its face-specific response. Expand
The compassionate brain: humans detect intensity of pain from another's face.
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, it is shown that not only the presence of pain but also the intensity of the observed pain is encoded in the observer's brain-as occurs during the observer’s own pain experience. Expand
Human cortical oscillations: a neuromagnetic view through the skull
Recordings from intact humans have shown that several regions of the healthy human cortex have their own intrinsic rhythms, typically 8-40 Hz in frequency, with modality- and frequency-specific reactivity. Expand
