Neuromagnetic fields were recorded from human subjects as they listened selectively to sequences of rapidly presented tones in one ear while ignoring tones of a different pitch in the opposite ear. Tones in the attended ear evoked larger magnetic brain responses than did unattended tones in the latency ranges 20-50 msec and 80-130 msec poststimulus. Source(More)
This paper presents data concerning auditory evoked responses in the middle latency range (wave Pam/Pa) and slow latency range (wave N1m/N1) recorded from 12 subjects. It is the first group study to report multi-channel data of both MEG and EEG recordings from the human auditory cortex. The experimental procedure involved potential and current density(More)
We have discovered a ca. 40-Hz transient magnetic oscillatory response, evoked in the human brain by the onset of auditory stimuli, consisting of four or more cycles locked in phase to stimulus onset in approximately the 20- to 130-ms poststimulus interval. The response originates in the supratemporal auditory cortex, some millimeters deeper and anterior to(More)
Magnetic source imaging revealed that the topographic representation in the somatosensory cortex of the face area in upper extremity amputees was shifted an average of 1.5 cm toward the area that would normally receive input from the now absent nerves supplying the hand and fingers. Observed alterations provide evidence for extensive plastic reorganization(More)
Sustained magnetic and electric brain waves may reflect linguistic processing when elicited by auditory speech stimuli. In the present study, only in the latency interval subsequent to the N1m/N1 has a sensitivity of brain responses to features of speech been demonstrated. We conclude this from studying the auditory-evoked magnetic field (AEF) and the(More)
The auditory evoked neuromagnetic field elicited by synthetic specimens of the vowels [a], [ae], [u], and [i] was recorded over the left and the right hemisphere of 11 subjects. The N100m and the SF deflection of the recorded signal was submitted to equivalent current source analysis using the model of a single dipole in a spherical volume conductor. Vowel(More)
Transient and steady-state auditory evoked fields (AEFs) to brief tone pips were recorded over the left hemisphere at 7 different stimulus rates (0.125-39 Hz) using a 37-channel biomagnetometer. Previous observations of transient auditory gamma band response (GBR) activity were replicated. Similar rate characteristics and equivalent dipole locations(More)
OBJECTIVE It is well known that tone bursts elicit a prominent N1/P2 complex in the auditory evoked potential (the on-response), but less is known about a morphologically similar complex (the off-response) that can be recorded under suitable stimulus conditions. The interaction between the two responses indicated that the responses were not physiologically(More)
The neuromagnetic source localizations of the auditory M100 and the mismatch field (MMF) were studied using a large-array biomagnetometer. Standard tones of 1000 Hz and deviant tones of 1050 Hz were delivered with 90% and 10% probability, respectively. Wave forms of the derived MMF were computed by examining difference wave forms between the responses to(More)
The magnetic counterpart of the CNV, the contingent magnetic variation (CMV), was investigated in an Go/No Go design: subjects moved their index finger to the offset of a 4 sec tone of a certain frequency in the Go condition and were asked not to move during presentation of a 4 sec tone of different frequency in the No Go condition. During the preparatory(More)
