OBJECTIVE Several studies have shown that spatiotemporal aspects of motion are stored and can be retrieved with the use of vestibular and somatosensory cues. The purpose of this study was to examine whether intentional imagination of body rotation can induce oculomotor activity similar to the typical vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR). MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
In order to determine whether short and middle latency vestibular evoked potentials (VsEPs) can be recorded in humans in response to angular acceleration stimuli in the vertical plane, a drum, head-holder, and stepper motor were designed to deliver upward acceleration impulses of 10,000 degrees/s2 (1.8 degrees displacement) to the human head. Forehead and(More)
The middle latency vestibular evoked potential (ML-VsEP) recorded with scalp electrodes in man in response to impulses of angular acceleration is dominated by a forehead positive peak at about 15 ms and a negative peak at about 20 ms; the peak to peak amplitude of this component is about 30 microV. This is followed by slower, smaller amplitude activity. The(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the time locking of the 'natural' (delta, theta, slow alpha, fast alpha and beta) EEG waves during the generation of the P300 in passive (P300a) and active (P300b) auditory oddball paradigms in order to obtain insights into the generation of the P300 and into the transitions between background and evoked activity. METHODS Tone burst(More)
OBJECTIVES The EEG during background activity and that evoked in response to sensory stimuli (evoked potential, EP) has traditionally been studied by averaging and by frequency analysis. These obscure trial to trial variability. A new analysis technique is presented here which leads to single trial analysis and to insight into the mechanisms of EP(More)
The goal of the present study was to apply the oscillatory brain dynamics model to the structural and quantitative analysis of neurocognitive functions considered as a potential marker of schizophrenia. This was achieved in tests of the detection of auditory events deviating in the regular auditory stream (oddball paradigm, MMN effect). It was hypothesized(More)
The dynamics of some oxygenating pulmonary function (OPF) indices has been studied in 33 patients with coronary cardiac disease and rheumatic lesions of cardiac valves 4-6 hours after surgery in response to a single hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) session (1.5 ata, 45 min) in the immediate postoperative period. It is found that in the presence of slight or, on(More)
The isometric test was conducted prior to and after a hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO) session in 31 coronary heart disease (CHD) patients. The results were compared with the findings provided by the examination of 138 coronary patients and 23 normal subjects receiving no HBO treatment. It was shown that the isometric test makes it possible to objectively(More)
