    Wavelets provide an orthonormal basis for multiresolution analysis and decorrelation or 'whitening' of nonstationary time series and spatial processes. Wavelets are particularly well suited to analysis of biological signals and images, such as human brain imaging data, which often have fractal...

    The role of neurotransmitters in the activity of resting state networks has been gaining attention and has become a field of research with magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) being one of the key techniques. MRS permits the measurement of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutamate levels, the...

    Conventional statistical analysis methods for functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data are very successful at detecting brain regions that are activated as a whole during specific mental activities. The overall activation of a region is usually taken to indicate involvement of the...

    Modern neuroimaging methods may provide unique insights into the mechanism and role of sleep, as well as into particular mechanisms of brain function in general. Many of the recent neuroimaging studies have used concurrent EEG and fMRI, which present unique technical challenges ranging from the...

  • Age-related changes of the dentate nuclei in normal adults as revealed by 3D fast low angle shot (FLASH) echo sequence magnetic resonance imaging. Maschke, Matthias; Weber, Johannes; Dimitrova, Albena; Bonnet, Udo; Bohrenkämper, Julia; Sturm, Sonja; Kindsvater, Kerstin; Müller, Bernhard W.; Gastpar, Markus; Diener, Hans-Christoph; Forsting, Michael; Timmann, Dagmar // Journal of Neurology;Jun2004, Vol. 251 Issue 6, p740 

    The aim of the present study was to investigate age-related changes in iron-deposition in dentate nuclei using iron-induced susceptibility effects in magnetic resonance imaging. MR images from 74 healthy subjects (age range 20–68 years) were obtained using a three-dimensional (3D)...

  • Mapping preictal and ictal haemodynamic networks using video-electroencephalography and functional imaging. Chaudhary, Umair J.; Carmichael, David W.; Rodionov, Roman; Thornton, Rachel C.; Bartlett, Phillipa; Vulliemoz, Serge; Micallef, Caroline; McEvoy, Andrew W.; Diehl, Beate; Walker, Matthew C.; Duncan, John S.; Lemieux, Louis // Brain: A Journal of Neurology;Dec2012, Vol. 135 Issue 12, p3645 

    Ictal patterns on scalp-electroencephalography are often visible only after propagation, therefore rendering localization of the seizure onset zone challenging. We hypothesized that mapping haemodynamic changes before and during seizures using simultaneous video-electroencephalography and...
