Much effort has been devoted to developing analysis methods of subdural electroencephalogram and depth electrode recordings of epileptic patients being evaluated for surgical resection. The general approach is to investigate the brain activity at different locations as recorded by the different electrodes in an attempt to localize the epileptogenic focus or(More)
Head movements during an MEG recording are commonly considered an obstacle. In this computer simulation study, we introduce an approach, the virtual MEG helmet (VMH), which employs the head movements for data quality improvement. With a VMH, a denser MEG helmet is constructed by adding new sensors corresponding to different head positions. Based on the(More)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) significantly alleviates symptoms in various neurological disorders. Current research focuses on developing programmed stimulation protocols for customization to individual symptoms. However, the therapeutic mechanism of action of programmed DBS (pDBS) is poorly understood. We previously demonstrated that pDBS in the ventral(More)
OBJECTIVE Providing a reliable assessment of language lateralization is an important task to be performed prior to neurosurgery in patients with epilepsy. Over the last decade, functional MRI (fMRI) has emerged as a useful noninvasive tool for language lateralization, supplementing or replacing traditional invasive methods. In standard practice, fMRI-based(More)
Despite progress in elucidating mechanisms of depression, the efficacy of different treatments remains inadequate. Recent small-scale clinical studies suggested anti-depressant treatment using deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the ventral capsule/ventral striatum or subgenual cingulate cortex (SCC), yet controlled, multi-center trials were unsuccessful. We(More)
OBJECTIVE Although simultaneous recording of EEG and MRI has gained increasing popularity in recent years, the extent of its clinical use remains limited by various technical challenges. Motion interference is one of the major challenges in EEG-fMRI. Here we present an approach which reduces its impact with the aid of an MR compatible dual-array EEG (daEEG)(More)
Expert evaluation of electrocorticographic (ECoG) recordings forms the linchpin of seizure onset zone localization in the evaluation of epileptic patients for surgical resection. Numerous methods have been developed to analyze these complex recordings, including uni-variate (characterizing single channels), bi-variate (comparing channel pairs) and(More)
