Prototypical EEG Artifact Independent Components

For better or worse, I wrote a traditional dissertation instead of a more practical “staple” dissertation composed primarily of journal articles. Hence there are some potentially useful things in it that will likely never be read beyond my committee and, perhaps, people willing to search the thing piecemeal on Google Books. Perhaps this blog can … More Prototypical EEG Artifact Independent Components

Einstein’s EEG

I’ve been reading through neurological atlases of the intracranial electroencephalogram to research the frequencies of oscillations that are characteristic of different brain areas in health and disease.  Today I was able to exhume from a library Epilepsy and the Functional Anatomy of the Human Brain, a 1954 book by the pioneering Wilder Penfield and Herbert … More Einstein’s EEG

Towards an Atlas of Human Neocortical Oscillations

The electroencephalogram (EEG) is one of the most popular measures of human brain function and is currently the most clinically utilized. The EEG primarily reflects the synaptic activity of patches of neocortical pyramidal cells (at minimum probably around the order of 25 mm2–(Baillet, Mosher, & Leahy, 2001) and its most salient feature is intermittent oscillations … More Towards an Atlas of Human Neocortical Oscillations
