Brain oscillatory activity has long been thought to have spatial properties, the details of which are unresolved. Here we examine spatial organizational rules for the human brain oscillatory activity as measured by blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) signal. Resting-state BOLD signal was transformed into frequency space (Welch's method) and averaged across(More)
Mental representations of social status hierarchy share properties with that of numbers. Previous neuroimaging studies have shown that the neural representation of numerical magnitude lies within a network of regions within inferior parietal cortex. However the neural basis of social status hierarchy remains unknown. Using fMRI, we studied subjects while(More)
In this event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study, participants listened to and comprehended short stories implying or explicitly stating inference events. The aim of this study was to examine the neural mechanisms that underlie inference generation, a process essential to successful comprehension. We observed distinct patterns of(More)
The way in which normal variations in human neuroanatomy relate to brain function remains largely uninvestigated. This study addresses the question by relating anatomical measurements of Heschl's gyrus (HG), the structure containing human primary auditory cortex, to how this region processes temporal and spectral acoustic information. In this study,(More)
To compare the fixation strengths of two arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction techniques, we harvested 10-mm bone-patellar tendon-bone grafts with 25-mm bone plugs from 12 fresh-frozen cadaveric knees. One knee of each pair was fixed using Acufex instruments and the two-incision technique; one knee was fixed using Arthrotek instruments and(More)

The field of MR brain mapping is made possible by exploiting properties of cerebral hemodynamics subsequent to neuronal activity. With the onset of neuronal activity there is an associated change in cerebral metabolism, blood flow, blood volume and oxygen consumption [1-5]. The complex physiologic interplay of these parameters is not well understood.(More)
Common goals in the development of human-machine interface (HMI) technology are to reduce cognitive workload and increase function. However, objective and quantitative outcome measures assessing cognitive workload have not been standardized for HMI research. The present study examines the efficacy of a simple event-related potential (ERP) measure of(More)
s Friday Special Symposium: Beyond the Perception/Action Dissociation Dissociations and interactions of two visual processing-streams in sensori-motor control The dissociation of visual processing for sensori-motor control (the dorsal stream) and for conscious perception and cognitive processing (the ventral stream) has emerged as one of the important(More)
