Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a method to stimulate neurons in the brain. It is necessary to obtain eddy current distributions and determine parameters such as position, radius and bend-angle of the coil to stimulate target area exactly. In this study, we performed FEM-based numerical simulations of eddy current induced by TMS using(More)
To investigate the relationship between neuronal activity and hemodynamics, we carried out a near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) study to measure the regional changes of hemoglobin concentration associated with cortical activation in the human sensorimotor cortex (SMI) to both voluntary and nonvoluntary tasks. We measured the hemodynamic evoked responses to(More)
In recent years, many studies shows that the ERS (event-related synchronization) in the gamma band is associated with cortical activation during the imagination of body parts movement. It is also known that the ERD (event-related desynchronization) in the micro and beta band are caused by the imagination of body parts movement. In this study, we(More)
This paper reports the result of computer simulation about compound action potential of a sural nerve with and without fiber loss. A compound action potential is a wave of electric potential detectable on the skin after electric stimulation of a peripheral nerve. The loss of nerve fibers, which is observed in some neuropathies, is considered as the cause of(More)
OBJECT The authors undertook this study to investigate the incidence, cause, and clinical influence of short circuits in patients treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS). METHODS After the incidental identification of a short circuit during routine follow-up, the authors initiated a policy at their institution of routinely evaluating both therapeutic(More)
In the functional neuro-imaging, it is known that the activation to the second stimulus is suppressed when two stimuli are given successively with a short interval as sensory inputs. This kind of suppressive phenomenon has been observed in event-related potential (ERP) signals as well as functional MRI signals of primary auditory, somatosensory and visual(More)
