The human superior temporal cortex plays a critical role in hearing, speech, and language, yet its functional organization is poorly understood. Evoked potentials (EPs) to auditory click-train stimulation presented binaurally were recorded chronically from penetrating electrodes implanted in Heschl's gyrus (HG), from pial-surface electrodes placed on the(More)
Proper ventricular catheter placements are associated with improved shunt performance. When placing ventricular catheters via the posterior approach, the surgeon must determine an optimum trajectory and then pass a catheter along that trajectory. The incidence of optimal posterior catheter placements is increased by using a posterior catheter guide (PCG);(More)
PURPOSE Although excellent results are reported from centers using microelectrode mapping during stereotactic pallidotomy, the recording methods used are time-consuming and technically cumbersome. We sought to develop a new electrode concept that may, when eventually applied in clinical practice, improve the efficiency and safety of microelectrode-guided(More)
Neurosurgeons have unique access to in vivo human brain tissue, and in the course of clinical treatment important scientific advances have been made that further our understanding of normal brain physiology. In the modern era, microelectrode recordings have been used to systematically investigate the cellular properties of lateral temporal cerebral cortex.(More)
During certain microneurosurgical procedures, the illumination provided by current coaxial microscope light sources is suboptimal. One potential solution is the surgical light blade (SLB), a malleable retractor incorporating a flat fiberoptic bundle along its surface. The SLB provides intense illumination within the surgical field without decreasing the(More)
In exploratory domains, agents’ behaviors include switching between activities, extraneous actions, and mistakes. Such settings are prevalent in real world applications such as interaction with open-ended software, collaborative office assistants, and integrated development environments. Despite the prevalence of such settings in the real world, there(More)
Plan recognition algorithms infer agents’ plans from their observed actions. Due to imperfect knowledge about the agent’s behavior and the environment, it is often the case that there are multiple hypotheses about an agent’s plans that are consistent with the observations, though only one of these hypotheses is correct. This paper addresses the problem of(More)
