The R1 component of the blink reflex was evoked by stimulation of the left supraorbital and infraorbital nerves in 10 subjects. In addition, an artificial dipole was placed over the left eyebrow, in order to simulate the occurrence of the R1 component of the blink reflex. These electrical events were recorded at scalp locations Fz, F8, F7, C6, C5, referred(More)
In 20 subjects the supraorbital nerve was stimulated and R1 recorded from electrodes placed over the ipsilateral orbicularis oculi muscle and from locations Fz, F8, F7, Cz, C6, C5, Pz, T4, and T3 on the scalp. The latter were referred either to an extracranial electrode or to Fz. In five subjects an artificial dipole was set at three different positions on(More)
