Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the human motor cortex results in polarity-specific shifts of cortical excitability during and after stimulation. Anodal tDCS enhances and cathodal stimulation reduces excitability. Animal experiments have demonstrated that the effect of anodal tDCS is caused by neuronal depolarisation, while cathodal tDCS(More)
Visual motion processing in humans was studied by simultaneous 32-channel electroencephalography (EEG) recordings of visual evoked potentials and BOLD MRI activations at 2.9 T. The paradigms compared three different random dot patterns (12 s duration) with stationary random dots (18 s) or with each other. The stimuli represented pattern reversal (500 ms(More)
Variations of a subject's vigilance may pose a severe confound during functional brain mapping. Here, we focused on BOLD MRI responses to eyes opening and closing in complete darkness and the associated changes in the EEG's alpha frequency band (Berger's effect) as a possible approach to this problem. In awake subjects, BOLD MRI activation patterns were(More)
Neurological manifestations in Whipple's disease are highly variable and tend to occur at later stages of the disease. However, isolated, focal neurological symptoms are reported to be rare. Here we describe the successful treatment of a case of cerebral Whipple's disease initially presenting solely with isolated myoclonic jerks of the left hand and forearm(More)
