Visual epidural field potentials possess high functional specificity in single trials.

Recordings of epidural field potentials (EFPs) allow to acquire neuronal activity over a large region of cortical tissue with minimal invasiveness. Because electrodes are placed on top of the dura and do not enter the neuronal tissue, EFPs offer intriguing options for both clinical and basic science research. On the other hand, EFPs represent the integrated activity of larger neuronal populations, possess a higher trial-by-trial variability, and a reduced signal-to-noise ratio due the additional barrier of ...


Semi-invasive and non-invasive recording of visual evoked potentials in mice.

Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) are used to assess visual function in preclinical models of neurodegenerative diseases. VEP recording with epidural screw electrodes is a common method to study visual function in rodents, despite being an invasive procedure that can damage the tissue under the skull. The present study was performed to test a semi-invasive (epicranial) and a non-invasive (epidermal) VEP recording technique, comparing them with the classic epidural acquisition method.

Sparse model-based estimation of functional dependence in high-dimensional field and spike multiscale networks.

Behavior is encoded across multiple scales of brain activity, from binary neuronal spikes to continuous fields including local field potentials (LFP). Multiscale models need to describe both the encoding of behavior and the conditional dependencies in simultaneously recorded spike and field signals, which form a high-dimensional multiscale network. However, learning spike-field dependencies in high-dimensional recordings is challenging due to the prohibitively large number of spike-field signal pairs, which...


Visual vs. computer-based computed tomography analysis for the identification of functional patterns in interstitial lung diseases.

Computer algorithms possess an intrinsic speed, objectivity, reproducibility and scalability unmatched by visual quantitation methods performed by trained readers. The question of how well quantitative CT (QCT) analysis methods compare with visual CT analysis to predict functional status in fibrosing lung diseases (FLDs) is of increasing relevance to understand the future role QCT may have in prognostication of FLD.

Serial Visual Evoked Potentials in Patients with Craniosynostosis and Invasive Intracranial Pressure Monitoring.

This study aimed to detect the ability of pattern visual evoked potentials to detect visual pathway dysfunction in a cohort of patients with craniosynostosis who also had invasive intracranial pressure measurement. A retrospective review was conducted on craniosynostosis patients who had invasive intracranial pressure measurement and at least one pattern visual evoked potentials test. Reversal pattern visual evoked potentials were performed with both eyes open. Thirteen patients met the inclusion criteria (...

High density mapping of aortic cusps improves near field detection of pre-potentials during premature ventricular contractions.

Recognition of pre-potentials during activation mapping of aortic cusp premature ventricular contractions is useful to localize the precise site of origin and is an indicator of successful ablation, but sometimes these electrograms can be blunt and have low amplitude. High resolution mapping in the aortic cusp region allows improved near field detection of these signals in very few beats.

Effect of high-order aberrations on pattern-reversal visual evoked potentials.

To investigate the effect of high-order aberrations (HOAs) on pattern-reversal visual evoked potentials (PR-VEPs), we measured PR-VEPs with HOAs either retained or corrected with an adaptive optics (AO) system for 12 subjects. The PR-VEPs at different spatial frequencies were recorded for the dominant eye of each subject. The results indicated that the amplitude of the first positive P1 wave at 1 to 16 cpd (except 2 cpd) and the second negative N2 wave at 12 and 16 cpd were raised statistically significantl...

The Posterior Lumbar Epidural Space: Three-Dimensional Reconstruction of High-Resolution MRI: Real and Potential Epidural Spaces and Their Content In Vivo.

Our aim was to study the posterior lumbar epidural space with 3D reconstructions of magnetic resonance images (MRIs) and to compare and validate the findings with targeted anatomic microdissections.

Patient-attentive sequential strategy for perimetry-based visual field acquisition.

Perimetry is a non-invasive clinical psychometric examination used for diagnosing ophthalmic and neurological conditions. At its core, perimetry relies on a subject pressing a button whenever they see a visual stimulus within their field of view. This sequential process then yields a 2D visual field image that is critical for clinical use. Perimetry is painfully slow however, with examinations lasting 7-8 minutes per eye. Maintaining high levels of concentration during that time is exhausting for the patien...

Traumatic Retroclival Epidural Hematoma.

Retroclival epidural hematomas are particularly rare conditions that are frequently the result of high-energy, hyperflexion-hyperextension injuries in pediatric patients. We present the case of a 7-year-old previously healthy girl with traumatic retroclival epidural hematoma after a fall from a swing. She presented with a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 15 with severe neck pain and limitation of cervical movements in all directions. Radiological examination revealed retroclival epidural hematoma, and the patien...

Cortical State Fluctuations across Layers of V1 during Visual Spatial Perception.

Many factors modulate the state of cortical activity, but the importance of cortical state variability for sensory perception remains debated. We trained mice to detect spatially localized visual stimuli and simultaneously measured local field potentials and excitatory and inhibitory neuron populations across layers of primary visual cortex (V1). Cortical states with low spontaneous firing and correlations in excitatory neurons, and suppression of 3- to 7-Hz oscillations in layer 4, accurately predicted sin...

Epidural analgesia for adults undergoing cardiac surgery with or without cardiopulmonary bypass.

General anaesthesia combined with epidural analgesia may have a beneficial effect on clinical outcomes. However, use of epidural analgesia for cardiac surgery is controversial due to a theoretical increased risk of epidural haematoma associated with systemic heparinization. This review was published in 2013, and it was updated in 2019.

The influence of visual field position induced by a retinal prosthesis simulator on mobility.

Our aim is to develop a new generation of suprachoroidal-transretinal stimulation (STS) retinal prosthesis using a dual-stimulating electrode array to enlarge the visual field. In the present study, we aimed to examine how position and size of the visual field-created by a retinal prosthesis simulator-influenced mobility.

Portable System for Neuro-Optical Diagnostics Using Virtual Reality Display.

A new product prototype system for diagnosing vision and neurological disorders, called NeuroDotVR, is described herein: this system utilizes a novel wireless NeuroDot brain sensor [Versek C et al. J Neural Eng. 2018 Aug; 15(4):046027] that quantitatively measures visual evoked potentials and fields resulting from custom visual stimuli displayed on a smartphone housed in a virtual reality headset. The NeuroDot brain sensor is unique in that it can be operated both in regular electroencephalography mode, as ...

A flexible geometry for panoramic visual and optogenetic stimulation during behavior and physiology.

To study visual processing, it is necessary to precisely control visual stimuli while recording neural and behavioral responses. It can be important to present stimuli over a broad area of the visual field, which can be technically difficult.

Sign language experience redistributes attentional resources to the inferior visual field.

While a substantial body of work has suggested that deafness brings about an increased allocation of visual attention to the periphery there has been much less work on how using a signed language may also influence this attentional allocation. Signed languages are visual-gestural and produced using the body and perceived via the human visual system. Signers fixate upon the face of interlocutors and do not directly look at the hands moving in the inferior visual field. It is therefore reasonable to predict t...

Intrinsic functional architecture of the non-human primate spinal cord derived from fMRI and electrophysiology.

Resting-state functional MRI (rsfMRI) has recently revealed correlated signals in the spinal cord horns of monkeys and humans. However, the interpretation of these rsfMRI correlations as indicators of functional connectivity in the spinal cord remains unclear. Here, we recorded stimulus-evoked and spontaneous spiking activity and local field potentials (LFPs) from monkey spinal cord in order to validate fMRI measures. We found that both BOLD and electrophysiological signals elicited by tactile stimulation c...

Electrocorticographic changes in field potentials following natural somatosensory percepts in humans.

Restoration of somatosensory deficits in humans requires a clear understanding of the neural representations of percepts. To characterize the cortical response to naturalistic somatosensation, we examined field potentials in the primary somatosensory cortex of humans.

Routing information flow by separate neural synchrony frequencies allows for "functionally labeled lines" in higher primate cortex.

Efficient transfer of sensory information to higher (motor or associative) areas in primate visual cortical areas is crucial for transforming sensory input into behavioral actions. Dynamically increasing the level of coordination between single neurons has been suggested as an important contributor to this efficiency. We propose that differences between the functional coordination in different visual pathways might be used to unambiguously identify the source of input to the higher areas, ensuring a proper ...

What and How the Deaf Brain Sees.

Over the past decade, there has been an unprecedented level of interest and progress into understanding visual processing in the brain of the deaf. Specifically, when the brain is deprived of input from one sensory modality (such as hearing), it often compensates with supranormal performance in one or more of the intact sensory systems (such as vision). Recent psychophysical, functional imaging, and reversible deactivation studies have converged to define the specific visual abilities that are enhanced in t...

Minimax-optimal decoding of movement goals from local field potentials using complex spectral features.

We consider the problem of predicting eye movement goals from local field potentials(LFP) recorded through a multielectrode array in the macaque prefrontal cortex. The monkey is tasked with performing memory-guided saccades to one of eight targets during which LFP activity is recorded and used to train a decoder.

Pupil Constriction in the Glare Illusion Modulates the Steady-State Visual Evoked Potentials.

The glare illusion enhances the perceived brightness of a central white area surrounded by a luminance gradient, without any actual change in light intensity. In this study, we measured the varied brightness and neurophysiological responses of electroencephalography (EEG) and pupil size with the several luminance contrast patterns of the glare illusion to address the question that whether the illusory brightness changes to the glare illusion process in the early visual cortex. We hypothesized that if the il...

Evaluation of divided attention using different stimulation models in event-related potentials.

Divided attention is defined as focusing on different tasks at once, and this is described as one of the biggest problems of today's society. Default examinations for understanding attention are questionnaires or physiological signals, like evoked potentials and electroencephalography. Physiological records were obtained using visual, auditory, and auditory-visual stimuli combinations with 48 participants-18-25-year-old university students-to find differences between sustained and divided attention. A Fouri...

High throughput, rapid receptive field estimation for global motion sensitive neurons using a contiguous motion noise stimulus.

The systematic characterization of receptive fields (RF) is essential for understanding visual motion processing. The performance of RF estimation depends on the employed stimuli, the complexity of the encoded features, and the quality of the activity readout. Calcium imaging is an attractive readout method for high-throughput neuronal activity recordings. However, calcium recordings are oftentimes noisy and of low temporal resolution. The RF estimation of neurons sensitive to global motion is particularly ...
