Knowledge about the intrinsic functional architecture of the human brain has been greatly expanded by the extensive use of resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). However, the neurophysiological correlates and origins of spontaneous fMRI signal changes remain poorly understood. In the present study, we characterized the power modulations(More)
Anatomic and behavioral evidence shows that TE and perirhinal cortices are two directly connected but distinct inferior temporal areas. Despite this distinctness, physiological properties of neurons in these two areas generally have been similar with neurons in both areas showing selectivity for complex visual patterns and showing response modulations(More)
Recent resting-state fMRI studies have shown that the apparent functional connectivity (FC) between brain regions may undergo changes on time-scales of seconds to minutes, the basis and importance of which are largely unknown. Here, we examine the electrophysiological correlates of within-scan FC variations during a condition of eyes-closed rest. A sliding(More)
The limbic system is necessary to associate stimuli with their motivational and emotional significance. The perirhinal cortex is directly connected to this system, and neurons in this region carry signals related to a monkey's progress through visually cued reward schedules. This task manipulates motivation by displaying different visual cues to indicate(More)
Noninvasive functional neuroimaging, as an important tool for basic neuroscience research and clinical diagnosis, continues to face the need of improving the spatial and temporal resolution. While existing neuroimaging modalities might approach their limits in imaging capability mostly due to fundamental as well as technical reasons, it becomes increasingly(More)
Are different kinds of stimuli (for example, different classes of geometric images or naturalistic images) encoded differently by visual cortex, or are the principles of encoding the same for all stimuli? We examine two response properties: (1) the range of spike counts that can be elicited from a neuron in epochs representative of short periods of fixation(More)
Imaging the myocardial activation sequence is critical for improved diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias. It is desirable to reveal the underlying cardiac electrical activity throughout the three-dimensional (3-D) myocardium (rather than just the endocardial or epicardial surface) from noninvasive body surface potential(More)
We propose a new electrocardiographic (ECG) inverse approach for imaging the three-dimensional (3-D) ventricular activation sequence based on the modeling and estimation of the equivalent current density throughout the entire volume of the ventricular myocardium. The spatio-temporal coherence of the ventricular excitation process has been utilized to derive(More)
In the human visual system, the internal representation of the left and right visual hemifields is split at the midline of the two cerebral hemispheres. The present study aims to address the questions of when and where the lateralized cortical visual representations are merged to form an intact percept by using a multimodal neuroimaging approach. Visual(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to experimentally investigate the influence of the anisotropy of white matter (WM) conductivity on EEG source localization. METHODS Visual evoked potentials (VEP) and fMRI data were recorded from three human subjects presented with identical visual stimuli. A finite element method was used to solve the EEG forward(More)
