Early modulation of visual cortex by sound: an MEG study
Sound can alter visual perception. This has been recently demonstrated by a strong illusion in which a single flash is perceived as multiple flashes when accompanied by multiple brief sounds. WhileExpand
Parietal dysfunction in developmental coordination disorder: a functional MRI study
We aimed to detect the mechanisms underlying clumsiness in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD). A functional magnetic resonance imaging study of a visuomotor task was performed inExpand
Metallic electrodes and leads in simultaneous EEG-MRI: specific absorption rate (SAR) simulation studies.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes in specific absorption rate (SAR) in human-head tissues while using nonmagnetic metallic electroencephalography (EEG) electrodes and leadsExpand
Neural substrates involved in imitating finger configurations: an fMRI study
Imitation plays a very important role in human cognition. Because previous neuroimaging studies on human imitation used rather simple actions as target stimuli, some aspects of imitation such asExpand
Dynamic cortical activation in mental image processing revealed by biomagnetic measurement.
The mental rotation task has been reported to activate the human parietal and extra-striate areas, based on the results of fMRI and PET analysis. In the present study, we investigated the dynamicExpand
Magnetoencephalographic study of cortical activity evoked by electrogustatory stimuli.
Electrogustometry is a convenient method to examine taste acuity in clinical situations. Some basic properties of neural activity in the cerebral cortex in response to electrogustatory stimulationExpand
Effect of 30% Oxygen Administration on Verbal Cognitive Performance, Blood Oxygen Saturation and Heart Rate
This study investigated the effect of 30% oxygen administration on verbal cognitive performance, blood oxygen saturation, and heart rate. Five male (24.6(±0.9) years) and five female (22.2(±1.9)Expand
Improved Prefrontal Activity and Chewing Performance as Function of Wearing Denture in Partially Edentulous Elderly Individuals: Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Study
The purpose of this study was to elucidate the effects of wearing a denture on prefrontal activity during chewing performance. We specifically examined that activity in 12 elderly edentulous subjectsExpand
Common Neural Network for Different Functions: An Investigation of Proactive and Reactive Inhibition
Successful behavioral inhibition involves both proactive and reactive inhibition, allowing people to prepare for restraining actions, and cancel their actions if the response becomes inappropriate.Expand
