It is well known that primary and non-primary areas of human somatosensory cortex are involved in the processing of adequate deviant/rare stimuli and omission of frequent stimuli. However, the relative weight and interaction of these variables is poorly known. This functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study tested the hypothesis that somatosensory(More)
In the human somatosensory system, the contralateral primary somatosensory cortex (SI) is presumed to process and encode type and intensity of the sensory inputs, whereas the bilateral secondary somatosensory cortex (SII) is believed to perform higher order functions including sensorimotor integration, integration of information from the two body halves,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the effects induced by an exposure to a GSM signal (Global System for Mobile Communication) on brain BOLD (blood-oxygen-level dependent) response, as well as its time course while performing a Go-NoGo task. METHODS Participants were tested twice, once in presence of a "real" exposure to GSM radiofrequency(More)
We report a case of nasopharyngeal carcinoma with brain metastasis of a 69-year-old man. The patient presented with blindness and a huge mass over right upper neck. The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed right nasopharyngeal tumor and metastatic lesion in bilateral occipital regions. The bony x-ray showed diffuse osteoblastic metastases. The brain(More)
Four numerical descriptors (median frequency, spectral edge frequency-95%, total power, and delta-ratio) derived from the computer-processed electroencephalogram (Neurometrics Lifescan) were analyzed for their ability to predict imminent arousal from total intravenous anesthesia with propofol. Fifteen patients undergoing minor surgical procedures without(More)
