The purpose of this study was to clarify the relationships between the distributions and cortical sources of two types of spindles in the magnetoencephalogram (MEG) and how cortical activating areas contribute to the distribution of spindles. Spontaneous activities during sleep stage 2 were recorded from 7 normal subjects by simultaneous EEG and MEG… (More)

Of 5,218 patients who received EEG examination at our laboratory during a 9-month period in 1989, 241 showed the 7-13 Hz arch-shaped activity originating from over the Rolandic area known as mu rhythm. These subjects were divided into two groups as follows: Group 1, 171 subjects showing typical mu rhythm, i.e., recorded during wakefulness and not affected… (More)
Few methods can predict the prognosis and outcome of traumatic brain injury. Electroencephalographic (EEG) examinations have prognostic significance in the acute stage of posttraumatic coma, and some EEG variables have been correlated with outcome. Furthermore, spindle activity and reactivity in the acute stage have been associated with good recovery.… (More)
This study aimed to determine the relationships between the amplitude and cortical-activating areas in each hemisphere for 14-Hz centro-parietal spindles to clarify the involvement of the cortex in the asymmetry of spindles after hemispheric stroke with putaminal or thalamic hemorrhage using simultaneous recording of the electroencephalogram and… (More)
We studied 241 patients whose electroencephalograms (EEGs) showed 7-13 Hz arch shaped wave patterns (mu rhythm) that are known to appear in the Rolandic area. The patients were then classified into two groups depending on the conditions of appearance of the mu rhythm. Group I (typical group) consisted of 171 cases. In this group, the presence of the wave… (More)
The midline theta rhythm consists of runs of theta waves occurring in the midline, especially in the central and parietal vertex regions. Few reports regarding this uncommon EEG finding have been published. It has been given various names, e.g. theta discharges in the middle-line, theta spindles, etc. Out of the 4,236 patients who were administered EEG… (More)
The theta rhythm that appears in the frontal midline was studied morphologically and clinically in EEGs performed on 788 patients and 161 normal subjects in their late teens or older. This theta rhythm was classified into 2 types. The Type 1 theta rhythm appeared in short bursts maximally in the Fz lead and spread mainly to the anterior region. It had a… (More)
