To observe sensory and cognitive information processing in Parkinson's disease (PD), 34 PD patients and 26 controls were investigated. A visual oddball paradigm and an S1-S2 paradigm were employed to record the early (P1, N1, P2) and late (N2, P3) event-related potentials (ERPs) at Cz, Pz and Oz. Results showed: (1) enlarged P1 amplitude at all electrode(More)
We investigated how visual event-related potentials (ERPs) are modulated by visual divided attention using an S1-S2 paradigm. Stimulus S2 consisted of non-target stimuli (Stimulus 1, 2, 3) and a target stimulus (Stimulus 4). The spatial/color factor was compared between S1 and S2: same/same (Stimulus 1); same/different (Stimulus 2); different/same (Stimulus(More)
Visual event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded during an oddball paradigm (OBP) and a simple reaction paradigm (SRP) to investigate the effect of stimulus-onset asynchrony (SOA) on ERPs under constant and random conditions in nine healthy individuals. NA was obtained by subtracting ERPs for SRP from those to the frequent nontarget of OBP. N2 was(More)
To study the human brain activity correlated with illusory perception, we chose a physically flat plane figure which looks like a convex figure. We studied visual evoked potential (VEP) changes, which reflect perceptual properties of illusory perception. We defined two paradigms, an illusory paradigm (IP) and a control paradigm (CP). Two stimuli, A and B,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the cerebral activity correlated with depth perception of 3-dimensional (3D) images, by recording of human visual evoked potentials (VEPs). METHODS Two figures consisting of smaller and larger squares were presented alternately. VEPs were recorded in two conditions. In condition I, we used two figures which yielded flat(More)
Ten subjects were asked to pay attention to green or to red, when each visual stimulus was presented as two small squares, one green and the other red. They were instructed to push a button with the right hand, when the attended color was on the right side, and to push a button with the left hand, when the attended color was on the left side. The P1/N1(More)
We investigated the neurophysiological correlates of stereoscopic 3-dimensional (3-D) depth perception by studying human visual evoked potentials (VEPs) with an integral imaging method characterized by horizontal but not vertical disparity. The VEPs were recorded in 10 healthy men under 4 conditions. In condition I, stimuli A (flat, 2-dimensional [2-D](More)
We have introduced S1-S2 paradigm (task S) as well as oddball paradigm (task O) visual event-related potentials (ERPs) under different interstimulus intervals (ISIs) in Parkinson's disease (PD). ERP measurements were correlated with motor disability, WAIS-R, and regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). The 'group' influence was characterized by longer latency(More)
We studied scalp visual evoked potentials (VEPs) during a simple visual attention paradigm using a dot stimulus, which was presented every 1600 ms, at the center of a screen. The visual attention paradigm consisted of three tasks: task R, task L and task N. The subjects were instructed to press a button either with the right hand (task R) or with the left(More)
