Abnormal cortical processing of voluntary muscle relaxation in patients with focal hand dystonia studied by movement-related potentials. (1/178)

In order to clarify the abnormality in cortical motor preparation for voluntary muscle relaxation of the hand in patients with focal hand dystonia, Bereitschaftspotentials (BPs) preceding voluntary muscle contraction and relaxation were recorded in eight patients (three with simple writer's cramp and five with dystonic writer's cramp), and were compared with those from 10 normal subjects. Voluntary muscle relaxation: after keeping the right wrist in an extended position for > 5 s, the subject let the hand drop by voluntarily terminating muscle contraction of the wrist extensor without any associated muscle contraction. Voluntary muscle contraction: the right wrist was flexed by voluntarily contracting the wrist flexor muscle. Scalp EEGs were recorded from 11 electrodes placed over the frontal, central and parietal areas. In the control group, the BP measured at the movement onset was maximal at the left central area (C1), and distributed predominantly over the left hemisphere equally in both the contraction and relaxation tasks. In the focal hand dystonia group, BP was maximal at C1 in the contraction task, whereas, in the relaxation task, it was maximal at the midline central area (Cz) and symmetrically distributed. At the left central area, the BP amplitude in the focal hand dystonia group was diminished significantly in the relaxation task compared with the contraction task (P < 0.05). The present results demonstrate for the first time that the cortical preparatory process for voluntary muscle relaxation, or motor inhibition, is abnormal in focal hand dystonia.  (+info)

Bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation improves frontal cortex function in Parkinson's disease. An electrophysiological study of the contingent negative variation. (2/178)

Parkinson's disease involves impaired activation of frontal cortical areas, including the supplementary motor area and prefrontal cortex, resulting from impaired thalamocortical output of the basal ganglia. Electrophysiologically, such impaired cortical activation may be seen as a reduced amplitude of the contingent negative variation (CNV), a slow negative potential shift reflecting cognitive processes associated with the preparation and/or anticipation of a response. Surgical interventions aimed at increasing basal ganglia-thalamic outflow to the cortex, such as electrical stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus with chronically implanted electrodes, have been shown to be effective in improving the clinical symptoms of Parkinson's disease. This study examined changes in cortical activity, as reflected in the CNV, associated with bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation in Parkinson's disease. The CNV was recorded from 10 patients with Parkinson's disease when on and off bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation, and was compared with the CNV of 10 healthy control subjects. Without subthalamic nucleus stimulation, Parkinson's disease patients showed reduced CNV amplitudes over the frontal and frontocentral regions compared with control subjects. With bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation, however, CNV amplitudes over the frontal and frontocentral regions were significantly increased. Results therefore suggest that impaired cortical functioning in Parkinson's disease, particularly within the frontal and premotor areas, is improved by subthalamic nucleus stimulation.  (+info)

Medial frontal cortex in action monitoring. (3/178)

Effective behavior requires continuous action monitoring. Electrophysiological studies in both monkeys and humans have shown activity in the medial frontal cortex that reflects dynamic control and monitoring of behavioral acts. In humans, the centromedial frontal cortex shows an electrical response within 100 msec of an error, the error-related negativity (ERN). The ERN occurs only when subjects are aware of making an error, suggesting that a critical factor may be self-monitoring of the action process. In the present study, we examined late responses in a deadline reaction time task, in which the subject becomes increasingly aware of making an error as the response becomes increasingly late. We found evidence of response conflict before errors defined by late responses but not before errors defined by incorrect responses. The results also show a linear increase in the amplitude of the ERN with increasingly late responses. These data suggest that frontal networks provide dynamic representations that monitor and evaluate the unfolding action plan.  (+info)

Parallel information processing in motor systems: intracerebral recordings of readiness potential and CNV in human subjects. (4/178)

We performed intracerebral recordings of Readiness Potential (RP) and Contingent Negative Variation (CNV) with simple repetitive distal limb movement in candidates for epilepsy surgery. In 26 patients (in Paris), depth electrodes were located in various cortical structures; in eight patients (in Brno), in the basal ganglia and the cortex. RPs were displayed in the contralateral primary motor cortex, contralateral somato-sensory cortex, and bilaterally in the SMA and the caudal part of the anterior cingulate cortices. CNVs were recorded in the same cortical regions as the RP, as well as in the ipsilateral primary motor cortex, and bilaterally in the premotor fronto-lateral, parietal superior, and middle temporal regions. In the basal ganglia, the RP was recorded in the putamen in six of seven patients, and in the head of the caudate nucleus and the pallidum in the only patient with electrodes in these recording sites. We suggest that our results are consistent with a long-lasting, simultaneous activation of cortical and subcortical structures, before and during self-paced and stimulus-triggered movements. The particular regions that are simultaneously active may be determined by the task context.  (+info)

Effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on movement-related cortical activity in humans. (5/178)

Several lines of evidence suggest that low-rate repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the motor cortex at 1 Hz reduces the excitability of the motor cortex and produces metabolic changes under and at a distance from the stimulated side. Therefore, it has been suggested that rTMS may have beneficial effects on motor performance in patients with movement disorders. However, it is still unknown in what way these effects can be produced. The aim of the present study is to investigate whether rTMS of the motor cortex (15 min at 1 Hz) is able to modify the voluntary movement related cortical activity, as reflected in the Beretischaftspotential (BP), and if these changes are functionally relevant for the final motor performance. The cortical movement-related activity in a typical BP paradigm of five healthy volunteers has been recorded using 61 scalp electrodes, while subjects performed self-paced right thumb oppositions every 8-20 s. After a basal recording, the BP was recorded in three different conditions, counterbalanced across subjects: after rTMS stimulation of the left primary motor area (M1) (15 min, 1 Hz, 10% above motor threshold), after 15 min of sham rTMS stimulation and following 15 min of voluntary movements performed with spatio-temporal characteristics similar to those induced by TMS. The tapping test was used to assess motor performance before and after each condition. Only movement-related trials with similar electromyographic (onset from muscular 'silence') and accelerometric patterns (same initial direction and similar amplitudes) were selected for computing BP waveforms. TMS- evoked and self-paced thumb movements had the same directional accelerometric pattern but different amplitudes. In all subjects, the real rTMS, but neither sham stimulation nor prolonged voluntary movements, produced a significant amplitude decrement of the negative slope of the BP; there was also a shortening of the BP onset time in four subjects. The effect was topographically restricted to cortical areas which were active in the basal condition, irrespective of the basal degree of activation at every single electrode. No changes in the tapping test occurred. These findings suggest that rTMS of the motor cortex at 1 Hz may interfere with the movement related brain activity, probably through influence on cortical inhibitory networks.  (+info)

Multimodal EEG analysis in man suggests impairment-specific changes in movement-related electric brain activity after stroke. (6/178)

Movement-related slow cortical potentials and event-related desynchronization of alpha (alpha-ERD) and beta (beta-ERD) activity after self-paced voluntary triangular finger movements were studied in 13 ischaemic supratentorial stroke patients and 10 age-matched control subjects during movement preparation and actual performance. The stroke patients suffered from central arm paresis (n = 8), somatosensory deficits (n = 3) or ideomotor apraxia (n = 2). The multimodal EEG analysis suggested impairment-specific changes in the movement-related electrical activity of the brain. The readiness potential of paretic subjects was centred more anteriorly and laterally; during movement, they showed increased beta-ERD at left lateral frontal recording sites. Patients with somatosensory deficits showed reduced alpha-ERD and beta-ERD during both movement preparation and actual performance. Patients with ideomotor apraxia showed more lateralized frontal movement-related slow cortical potentials during both movement preparation and performance, and reduced left parietal beta-ERD during movement preparation. We conclude that (i) disturbed motor efference is associated with an increased need for excitatory drive of pyramidal cells in motor and premotor areas or an attempt to drive movements through projections from these areas to brainstem motor systems during movement preparation; (ii) an undisturbed somatosensory afference might contribute to the release of relevant cortical areas from their 'idling' state when movements are prepared and performed; and (iii) apraxic patients have a relative lack of activity of the mesial frontal motor system and the left parietal cortex, which is believed to be part of a network subserving ideomotor praxis.  (+info)

Disturbance of semantic processing in temporal lobe epilepsy demonstrated with scalp ERPs. (7/178)

We investigated event-related potentials (N400, LPC and CNV) elicited in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) patients and control subjects from scalp electrodes, using a word-pair category matching paradigm. Each prime consisted of a Japanese noun (constructed from 2-4 characters of the Hiragana) followed by a Chinese character (Kanji) as the target, the latter representing one of five semantic categories. There were two equally probable target conditions: match or mismatch. Each target was preceded by a prime, either belonging to, or not belonging to, the same semantic category. The subjects were required to respond with a specified button press to the given target, according to the condition. We found RTs to be longer under the mismatch condition in both subject groups. The N400 amplitude was reduced in TLE subjects under both conditions, although LPC and CNV amplitudes showed no significant differences. These results suggest that scalp N400 is capable of demonstrating disturbance of semantic processing in TLE non-invasively.  (+info)

Novelty-elicited mismatch negativity in patients with schizophrenia on admission and discharge. (8/178)

OBJECTIVE: Given recent reports of differences between mismatch negativity (MMN) elicited by always novel sounds (novelty-elicited MMN) and that elicited by repeated rare deviants (conventional MMN), we investigated novelty-elicited MMN and P3a in patients with schizophrenia before and after a nonstandardized inpatient treatment. DESIGN: Electrophysiological and clinical assessment of patients on admission and discharge from hospital. Assessment of control subjects on 2 sessions. SETTING: Inpatient treatment in a psychiatric university hospital. SUBJECTS: 20 patients with schizophrenia and 21 healthy control subjects of similar age and sex. Selection of patients with first- to third-episode schizophrenia. OUTCOME MEASURES: Early and late component MMN amplitudes and latencies, P3a amplitudes and latencies, Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS), Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF), Extrapyramidal Symptom Scale (EPS), Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale (AIMS) and chlorpromazine equivalents. RESULTS: In patients with schizophrenia, novelty-elicited MMN was unimpaired on admission, and there was a statistically significant reduction of the late MMN component with treatment. Improvements in symptom expression were associated with increased latencies of the early MMN component. CONCLUSION: Results indicate differences in information processing between conventional and novelty-elicited MMN. Some components of the novelty-elicited MMN might be more state dependent than those of the conventional MMN.  (+info)

Action selection requires choosing one of all the possible conflicting action plans that are available. There is currently a debate as to whether the dorsal medial frontal cortex (dMFC) merely detects or actively resolves response conflict. We used combined on-line transcranial magnetic stimulation and electroencephalographic recording (TMS-EEG) to test whether human dMFC plays a critical causal role in conflict resolution, and whether the mechanism for such a function is via interactions with primary motor cortex. In an Eriksen flanker task, subjects discriminated the direction of the centermost arrow in an array of five, responding with the left or right hand. The lateralized readiness potential (LRP), a measure of relative levels of activity in left and right motor cortices, was also recorded. Reaction times and error rates were higher on incongruent than congruent trials, and incongruent trials produced a positive LRP deflection reflecting initial partial activation of the incorrect response.

The neural simulation theory assumes that motor imagery and motor execution draw on a shared set of mechanisms underlying motor cognition. Evidence is accumulating that motor imagery and motor execution have many common features. The extent of the similarity and whether it spreads into the preparation phase is however unclear. This study used electroencephalographic recordings to compare the effects of providing advance information about upcoming movements on preparatory processing in a motor imagery and execution paradigm. Event-related potential data were recorded in a priming task where participants were cued to perform simple or complex finger movements. We hypothesized that a high degree of functional similarity of motor imagery and motor execution should be reflected in similar alterations of lateralized preparatory activity. Lateralized preparatory activity was indeed very similar, showing both motor-related (lateralized readiness potential, LRP) and cognitive components (anterior ...
en] The identification of the brain structures and neurotransmitters responsible for the generation and/or modulation of the mismatch negativity (MMN) may contribute to a clearer understanding of its functional significance, and may have clinical implications. In this context, some findings suggest that the scalp-recorded MMN reflects activity from multiple neuronal ensembles within or in the immediate vicinity of the primary auditory cortex and with possible contribution from the frontal cortex. However, few data are available concerning the influence of neurotransmitter systems on the MMN. In this study, the relationship between both noradrenergic and dopaminergic systems and the MMN were investigated in 34 healthy volunteers. Noradrenergic and dopaminergic activities were assessed with the apomorphine and clonidine challenge tests. The results showed no significant relationship between either growth hormone (GH) responses to apomorphine or clonidine and the MMN amplitude or latency. ...
Individuals with schizophrenia have heterogeneous impairments of the auditory processing system that likely mediate differences in the cognitive gains induced by auditory training (AT). Mismatch negativity (MMN) is an event-related potential component reflecting auditory echoic memory, and its amplitude reduction in schizophrenia has been linked to cognitive deficits. Therefore, MMN may predict response to AT and identify individuals with schizophrenia who have the most to gain from AT. Furthermore, to the extent that AT strengthens auditory deviance processing, MMN may also serve as a readout of the underlying changes in the auditory system induced by AT. Fifty-six individuals early in the course of a schizophrenia-spectrum illness (ESZ) were randomly assigned to 40 h of AT or Computer Games (CG). Cognitive assessments and EEG recordings during a multi-deviant MMN paradigm were obtained before and after AT and CG. Changes in these measures were compared between the treatment groups. Baseline ...

Specifying a single object gives a sequential analysis of deviance table for that fit. That is, the reductions in the residual deviance as each term of the formula is added in turn are given in as the rows of a table, plus the residual deviances themselves. If more than one object is specified, the table has a row for the residual degrees of freedom and deviance for each model. For all but the first model, the change in degrees of freedom and deviance is also given. (This only makes statistical sense if the models are nested.) It is conventional to list the models from smallest to largest, but this is up to the user. The table will optionally contain test statistics (and P values) comparing the reduction in deviance for the row to the residuals. For models with known dispersion (e.g., binomial and Poisson fits) the chi-squared test is most appropriate, and for those with dispersion estimated by moments (e.g ...

Using magnetoencephalography (MEG), we report here the hemispheric dominance of the auditory cortex that is selectively modulated by unexpected errors in the lyrics and melody of songs (lyrics and melody deviants), thereby elucidating under which conditions the lateralization of auditory processing changes. In experiment 1 using familiar songs, we found that the dipole strength of responses to the lyrics deviants was left-dominant at 140 ms (M140), whereas that of responses to the melody deviants was right-dominant at 130 ms (M130). In experiment 2 using familiar songs with a constant syllable or pitch, the dipole strength of frequency mismatch negativity elicited by oddballs was left-dominant. There were significant main effects of experiment (1 and 2) for the peak latencies and for the coordinates of the dipoles, indicating that the M140 and M130 were not the frequency mismatch negativity. In experiment 3 using newly memorized songs, the right-dominant M130 was observed only when the presented ...

Contingent Consideration - The consideration for the Companys acquisitions often includes future payments that are contingent upon the occurrence of a particular event. For example, milestone payment s might be based on the achievement of various regulatory approvals or future sales milestones, and royalty payments might be based on drug product sales levels. The Company records a contingent consideration obligation for such contingent payments at fair value on the acquisition date. The Company estimates the fair value of contingent consideration obligations through valuation models designed to estimate the probability of such contingent payments based on various assumptions and incorporating estimated success rates. Estimated payments are discounted using present value techniques to arrive at an estimated fair value at the balance sheet date.

One such study: paper published last year in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General by Amitai Shenhav studuents took cognitive reflection test and answered questions. This is so telling he says "The number of intuitive (incorrect) responses they gave on the CRT was correlated with their belief in God and immortal souls," so in other words intuitive means "wrong." How could one possibly study the validity of intuitive thinking when one defines it as "wrong form the outset? Moreover, they are judging it wrong because its connected to God, is that not also what makes it "intuitive?" They are just running around in circles demanding that what they believe has to be true and using their baises as the basis for proof. When we look at the actual tests on the study (see link above) we find that the real way they administer it (reported badly by Hustson) was to compare math answers arrived at intuitively with the persons individual belief in God. They compared believers answers to non believers ...
Negativity is a bad habit. We can always choose how we respond to everyday events. You would be surprised that an identical event can invoke vastly different responses from different people. When an event happen to us, we are always given a choice of either positivity or negativity. But for a significant portion of the human race, they always choosing negativity even if things is trivial, even it things were meant to be happy occasions. Being negative once a while is fine but for chronic negative thinkers, it really disgust me. Little did they know that their negativity can have widespread effect on people around them and lowering their quality of life.. You own it to people around you to stay positive because negativity can spread. We all have a unique type of neurons known as mirror neurons. Not only does mirror neurons helps to move, think and feel, they also allows us to infer a person intentions from his movement, allow us to comprehend a person thinkings through languages and of course, ...
A graphics system comprises a graphics processor, a sample buffer, and a sample-to-pixel calculation unit. The graphics processor generates samples in response to received stream of graphics data. The sample buffer may be configured to store the samples. The sample-to-pixel calculation unit is programmable to generate a plurality of output pixels by filtering the rendered samples using a filter. A filter having negative lobes may be used. The graphics system computes a negativity value for a first frame. The negativity value measures an amount of pixel negativity in the first frame. In response to the negativity value being above a certain threshold, the graphics systems adjusts the filter function and/or filter support in order to reduce the negativity value for subsequent frames.
What helped me decide to push through and do another lap was my experience at the Mansfield 8 Hr race back in May. Towards the end of that race, I was contemplating finishing up my ride even though I had time to make the cut-off. Why bother going out for another lap, I had a good race. What made me go back out then was training . . . . mental training. I thought that if I couldnt go on and ride until the very finish in an 8 hr, how was I going to make it through a 24 hr race? So I pushed on, got one more lap in. It made a huge difference in my standing - I made a top ten finish. The biggest thing though was it gave me confidence that I could go on, not give up and push through. Whoever said that its 90% mental and 10% physical was right ...

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): Im sorry. I wasnt good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so thats why I wasnt better at it. I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped. I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isnt the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me. Im still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I cant keep running them. Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really ...

Recent studies have associated increasing temporal expectations with synchronization of higher frequency oscillations and suppression of lower frequencies. In this experiment, we explore a proposal that low-frequency oscillations provide a mechanism for regulating temporal expectations. We used a speeded Go/No-go task and manipulated temporal expectations by changing the probability of target presentation after certain intervals. Across two conditions, the temporal conditional probability of target events differed substantially at the first of three possible intervals. We found that reactions times differed significantly at this first interval across conditions, decreasing with higher temporal expectations. Interestingly, the power of theta activity (4-8 Hz), distributed over central midline sites, also differed significantly across conditions at this first interval. Furthermore, we found a transient coupling between theta phase and beta power after the first interval in the condition with high temporal

Auditory novelty detection has been associated with different cognitive processes. Bekinschtein et al. (2009) developed an experimental paradigm to dissociate these processes, using local and global novelty, which were associated, respectively, with automatic versus strategic perceptual processing. They have mostly been studied using event-related potentials (ERPs), but local spiking activity as indexed by gamma (60-120 Hz) power and interactions between brain regions as indexed by modulations in beta-band (13-25 Hz) power and functional connectivity have not been explored. We thus recorded 9 epileptic patients with intracranial electrodes to compare the precise dynamics of the responses to local and global novelty. Local novelty triggered an early response observed as an intracranial mismatch negativity (MMN) contemporary with a strong power increase in the gamma band and an increase in connectivity in the beta band. Importantly, all these responses were strictly confined to the temporal ...
The use of event-related potential (ERP) recording technology during perceptual and cognitive processing has been studied in order to develop objective diagnostic indexes for people with neuropsychiatric disorders. For example, patients with schizophrenia exhibit consistent abnormalities in face-evoked early components of ERPs and mismatch negativities (MMNs). In most studies, the choice of reference has been the average reference (AVE), but whether this is the most suitable choice is still unknown. The aim of this study was to systematically compare the AVE and reference electrode standardization technique (REST) methods for assessing expressional face-evoked early visual ERPs and visual MMNs (vMMNs) in patients with schizophrenia and healthy controls. The results showed that both the AVE and REST methods could: (1) obtain primary visual-evoked ERPs in the two groups, (2) reveal the neutral and emotional expression discrimination deficit of the P1 component in the patients, which was normal in the
Central neurologic injury (CNI) causes dysfunctions not only in limbs but also in cognitive ability. We applied a novel peripheral nerve rewiring (PNR) surgical procedure to restore limb function. Here, we conducted a prospective study to develop estimates for the extent of preattentive processes to cognitive function changes in CNI patients after PNR. Auditory mismatch negativity (MMN) was measured in CNI patients who received the PNR surgery plus conventional rehabilitation treatment. During the 2-year follow-up, the MMN was enhanced with increased amplitude in the PNR plus rehabilitation group compared to the rehabilitation-only group as the experiment progressed, and progressive improvement in behavioural examination tests was also observed ...

Temporal expectations have been shown to enhance visual analysis of task-relevant events, especially when these are coupled with spatial expectations. Oscillatory brain activity, particularly in the alpha band, has been implicated in regulating excitability in visual areas as a function of anticipatory spatial attention. Here we asked whether temporal expectations derived from regular, rhythmic events can modulate ongoing oscillatory alpha-band activity, so that the changes in cortical excitability are focused over the time intervals at which target events are expected. The task we used involved making a perceptual discrimination about a small target stimulus that reappeared from behind a peripheral occluding band. Temporal expectations were manipulated by the regular, rhythmic versus irregular, arrhythmic approach of the stimulus toward the occluding band. Alpha-band activity was measured during the occlusion period, in which no stimulus was presented, but target reappearance was anticipated in
The information processing capacity of the human mind is limited, as is evidenced by the attentional blink-a deficit in identifying the second of two targets (T1 and T2) presented in close succession. This deficit is thought to result from an overinvestment of limited resources in T1 processing. We previously reported that intensive mental training in a style of meditation aimed at reducing elaborate object processing, reduced brain resource allocation to T1, and improved T2 accuracy [Slagter, H. A., Lutz, A., Greischar, L. L., Francis, A. D., Nieuwenhuis, S., Davis, J., et al. Mental training affects distribution of limited brain resources. PloS Biology, 5, e138, 2007]. Here we report EEG spectral analyses to examine the possibility that this reduction in elaborate T1 processing rendered the system more available to process new target information, as indexed by T2-locked phase variability. Intensive mental training was associated with decreased cross-trial variability in the phase of ...
Errors in speeded decision tasks are associated with characteristic patterns of brain activity. In the scalp-recorded EEG, error processing is reflected in two components, the error-related negativity (ERN) and the error positivity (Pe). These components have been widely studied, but debate remains regarding the precise aspects of error processing they reflect. The present study investigated the relation between the ERN and the Pe using a novel version of the flanker task to allow a comparison between errors reflecting different causes-response conflict versus stimulus masking. The conflict and mask conditions were matched for overall behavioural performance but differed in underlying response dynamics, as indexed by response time distributions and measures of lateralised motor activity. ERN amplitude varied in relation to these differing response dynamics, being significantly larger in the conflict condition compared to the mask condition. Furthermore, differences in response dynamics between
Negativity is a growing concern in the workplace. Many stressors in create concerns for management. The economy created a need to downsize companies, lay off employees, cut incentive packages, defer raises, and increase workloads for employees. These stressors created a concern for employee mental health, workplace violence, and negative attitudes. Negativity decreases employee performance, increases safety concerns, and costs the company in productivity.. The first step is to have a leader who is willing to identify and address this issue head on. A proactive leader stays in touch with line personnel and recognizes the early warning signs of negativity. Many times, we find that negativity is the result of a managerial decision, gossip, rumors, or even one bad apple in the workplace. Leaders must demonstrate a genuine concern for the employees wants and needs. Engagement at all levels to create a culture of caring within the workplace is important.. Social media is a marketing and branding tool ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of conflict and strategic processing on neural responses to errors in schizophrenia. AU - Donaldson, Kayla R.. AU - Roach, Brian J.. AU - Ford, Judith M.. AU - Lai, Karen. AU - Sreenivasan, Kartik. AU - Mathalon, Daniel H.. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - The error-related negativity (ERN) and error-positivity (Pe) are commonly linked to error-detection and strategic processing. Studies have documented the influence of conflict probability on ERN amplitude. However, the influence of conflict probability on ERN/Pe in schizophrenia, where such components are reduced, is unknown. A modified flanker paradigm was used to examine how the probability of conflict modulates ERN and Pe amplitudes in patients with schizophrenia (n = 33) and healthy controls (n = 25). Increased ERN was observed in response to errors on low probability, incongruent trials. No such differences were observed in Pe. While ERN and Pe showed significantly reduced amplitudes in patients relative to ...
Hey Hardcore this is a great topic. I like it, I like it alot. For you and all you other "mental cases" I have found that time off is the key to becoming stronger. What I try to do is take a week to two weeks off after a strong session(meaning a long month or two)and not think about climbing at all. Well ok, I cant not think about climbing, but I dont think about certain moves on problems or routes. What this will do is give your brain time to develop what is know as ingrams. Your brain knows what you should be doing whether it is breathing, feet, core strength, whatever. But if you continue to climb and take no time off, your brain will not have time to develop. I forget who said it with the facial thing, but you too are correct. Your face has over 80 different muscles in it, and they all directly affect how your brain is functioning. So for example, you have this stern look mixed with some frustration and anger, you will not do as well as you might if you are in a time of pursuit and ...

Rat subjects were randomly assigned to one of three groups. The rats were presented with differing patterns of target and non-target frequencies, with the target remaining constant between groups while the non-target varied between groups. The rats were rewarded with food for successful bar presses while the target tone was playing, and no reinforcement was delivered for presses that occurred during the non-target tone. The groups were labeled as Control, Rapid, and Gradual. The control group experienced a silence in the place of non-target tone, while the rapid and gradual groups received the same tone in the beginning, but the rate of tone change differed throughout the training process. The test phase involved all three groups experiencing a multitude of different tones, with correct versus incorrect responses monitored. Researchers hypothesized that the rats that received the intensive training provided by the gradual method would exhibit a greater attunement in discriminative ability when compared

The information on deviance is also provided. We can use the residual deviance to perform a goodness of fit test for the overall model. The residual deviance is the difference between the deviance of the current model and the maximum deviance of the ideal model where the predicted values are identical to the observed. Therefore, if the residual difference is small enough, the goodness of fit test will not be significant, indicating that the model fits the data. We conclude that the model fits reasonably well because the goodness-of-fit chi-squared test is not statistically significant. If the test had been statistically significant, it would indicate that the data do not fit the model well. In that situation, we may try to determine if there are omitted predictor variables, if our linearity assumption holds and/or if there is an issue of over-dispersion ...

If youve not read the original post (here it is for your reference) it is essentially a critique of our cultures perplexing stance on confidence. I wrote it because, to me, there is a real danger when we confuse humility with putting ourselves down, and I think that this happens more often than we even realize. In attempting to steer away from arrogance, we end up bringing a lot of negativity into the world. All at once, we rebuke people for their vanity, yet we still want our sisters and daughters to think of themselves as beautiful. We offer affirmation to our friends, yet we withhold it from ourselves, turning down compliments from others and focusing on our shortcomings instead ...

BACKGROUND:Individuals with schizophrenia have heterogeneous impairments of the auditory processing system that likely mediate differences in the cognitive gains induced by auditory training (AT). Mismatch negativity (MMN) is an event-related potential component reflecting auditory echoic memory, and its amplitude reduction in schizophrenia has been linked to cognitive deficits. Therefore, MMN may predict response to AT and identify individuals with schizophrenia who have the most to gain from AT. Furthermore, to the extent that AT strengthens auditory deviance processing, MMN may also serve as a readout of the underlying changes in the auditory system induced by AT. METHODS:Fifty-six individuals early in the course of a schizophrenia-spectrum illness (ESZ) were randomly assigned to 40 h of AT or Computer Games (CG). Cognitive assessments and EEG recordings during a multi-deviant MMN paradigm were obtained before and after AT and CG. Changes in these measures were compared between the treatment ...
A central feature of the lab is that it takes a social affective neuroscience approach to address questions of interest. Thus, the lab combines neuroimaging, cognitive reaction time, physiological, and behavioural techniques to understand and explain social behaviour. This interdisciplinary approach provides a fuller, more integrated understanding of social behaviour, emotion, and the brain. While using techniques borrowed from neuroscience and peripheral physiology, the lab is grounded in basic psychological science. That is, the lab measures basic biological states, be they from the brain or body, to understand something about the human mind, something about human psychology. While the lab takes a multi-method approach, the most prominent method used in the lab is electroencephalography (EEG) and the event-related potential (ERP) technique. In particular, much of the labs work centers on the error-related negativity (ERN), a neural reaction to mistakes that is thought to be generated by a key ...
A Vanderbilt University team recently described how error and reward signals are organized within the cerebral cortex, which is only as thick as a nickel. They say this information could also be significant in drug development by guiding medications to target receptors in particular layers of the cerebral cortex where they will be most effective.. In a paper titled "Cortical Microcircuitry of Performance Monitoring," their findings were published today in the journal Nature Neuroscience.. Jeffrey Schall, E. Bronson Ingram Professor of Neuroscience, said these new findings stem from earlier discoveries of a brainwave signal, recorded from the surface of the head, known as error-related negativity. It is observed following a mistake that allows people to correct their behavior. Schalls laboratory subsequently discovered two "oops centers" in the cerebral cortex, sources in the brain producing similar error signals. A combination of data from EEG sensors on the cranial surface and a specialized ...

The easiest residuals to understand are the deviance residuals as when squared these sum to -2 times the log-likelihood. In its simplest terms logistic regression can be understood in terms of fitting the function $p = \text{logit}^{-1}(X\beta)$ for known $X$ in such a way as to minimise the total deviance, which is the sum of squared deviance residuals of all the data points.. The (squared) deviance of each data point is equal to (-2 times) the logarithm of the difference between its predicted probability $\text{logit}^{-1}(X\beta)$ and the complement of its actual value (1 for a control; a 0 for a case) in absolute terms. A perfect fit of a point (which never occurs) gives a deviance of zero as log(1) is zero. A poorly fitting point has a large residual deviance as -2 times the log of a very small value is a large number. Doing logistic regression is akin to finding a beta value such that the sum of squared deviance residuals is minimised. This can be illustrated with a plot, but I dont know ...

A popular method to judge the behavior of a system that has to make decisions is to come up with a measure of performance. Such a system could be a human, an animal, an artificial agent or a classification algorithm. In case of multiple decisions, e.g. between two classes, a straightforward measure is often the Accuracy (i.e., the rate of correct decisions). However, Accuracy is misleading when the true class distribution is unbalanced. This situation is not only common in natural environments, but also often intended experimentally (e.g. in oddball paradigms). Consider, e.g., a situation where we have 990 examples of class A and just 10 examples of class B. Even if we know nothing about how to separate the two classes, we are able to obtain an Accuracy of 99% if we always decide for class A. The problem gets even worse when we want to compare two situations with different class distributions (e.g. when distributions change over time). To deal with such difficulties a lot of measures exist, but ...

Yes, I say deductive induction to suggest they are defeating their purpose somewhat by strictly limiting their hypothese too much. The approach is in the aim of the site, to make argument less wrong by deduction, but a good example where I tried to post some corrections to methodology in Solominoff Induction. I made some posts about the trade-off when making induction as strict as Soliminoff seems to propose, and directly challenged the author to answer them (which he didnt, last time I checked). Instead, he just gave several negative votes which bumped a couple of my posts off the blog, as they have a system where, if you get into a good argument with someone and they have points (I have none to save myself as a new person) they can just dump negativity on your post and its disappears, or mine did. Very sad methodology, and method. No future in it, really. I dont play with words as others do in posts, or crawl incrementally (or generally).. Delete ...

This is exactly what it appears to be. While we dont want to get into the reasons for it, it has become clear over the course of several seasons that we have a very large contingent of fans of our AFC West rivals that for whatever reason, prefer to spend their time here rather than at their home boards. For this reason, we have discussed for quite some time and finally implemented a place in the community you all helped make that you can call your very own. This is our way of saying

Honing, H., Merchant, H., Háden, G.P., Prado, L. & Bartolo, R. (2012). Rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) detect rhythmic groups in music, but not the beat. PLoS ONE, 7(12): e51369. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0051369 It was recently shown that rhythmic entrainment, long considered a human-specific mechanism, can be demonstrated in a selected group of bird species, and, somewhat surprisingly, not in more closely related species such as nonhuman primates. This observation supports the vocal learning hypothesis that suggests rhythmic entrainment to be a by-product of the vocal learning mechanisms that are shared by several bird and mammal species, including humans, but that are only weakly developed, or missing entirely, in nonhuman primates. To test this hypothesis we measured auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) in two rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta), probing a well-documented component in humans, the mismatch negativity (MMN) to study rhythmic expectation. We demonstrate for the first time in ...
The human brain is highly sensitive to patterns in sensory input [1-5]. A growing body of work in vision [3,6], touch [7], language [1] and audition [8-13] has demonstrated that subjects rapidly and automatically learn complex sensory statistics, and that these are exploited to improve perceptual inference, even when outside conscious awareness. This capacity is often interpreted as a fundamental element of the predictive mechanisms, which are proposed to constitute the principal substrate of perception [14-16].. In hearing, automatic sequence learning has commonly been studied via the mismatch negativity (MMN), an electrophysiological marker for the processing of sounds that break an established rule [11]. MMN to sequence violations has provided (indirect) evidence that the auditory system can learn complex rules governing sequences [10,17]. The repetition positivity, which increases with the number of repeated stimuli, is another neural marker of simple regularity extraction [18]. Recently, ...
Event-related potentials (ERPs) have been used for decades to study perception, cognition, emotion, neurological and psychiatric disorders, and lifespan development. ERPs consist of multiple components and reflect a specific neurocognitive process.
Public sector contingent faculty may make temporary progress in pay and working conditions through administrative policy or legislation, but even the best gains can vanish overnight in the absence of a state bargaining law, similar to state statutes covering K-12 public educators or the federal law covering private sector college and university employees.. Higher education faculty have bargaining rights in more than 25 states. But contingent negotiators, working with NEA state affiliate staff, should research their states bargaining laws to ensure that bargaining is legally permissible for non-tenure system faculty. If not, they should determine if existing laws should be amended or a new bargaining statute is required. Then, with bargaining rights, trained and energetic leadership, and high membership/involvement, an NEA higher education affiliate can begin to close the wide gap between contingent and tenure system faculty.. ...

An apparatus for generating non-personalized and personalized test scores. Characters are displayed on a display of a housing containing a microprocessor and means for driving the display. A keyboard is provided on the housing, whereby the user of the device may match a cursor on the display with each of the displayed characters, with the number of actions taken by the user, the time of response, and the number of correct and incorrect responses by the user being used to generate a score. The score may be used for comparison with later scores of the same user, who is identified by an individualized code stored in the microprocessor. The date and time of the most recent test for the given user may also be stored in the microprocessor. A test may be taken which is not to be compared with any other test results, in the non-personalized embodiment. Pass and fail displays are provided, to generate a pass or fail result depending upon the users score compared with his earlier score or with a

In this study, we used a traditional auditory oddball paradigm, in which participants were required to press a button for the infrequent target stimulus while ignoring the frequent non-target standard stimulus while ignoring the frequent non-target standard stimulus, and focused on P3 component, which is a generic name for a variety of relatively late positive components with a centro-parietal or centro-frontal midline distribution [17, 18]. In addition, we will also investigate the N2, a frontal-central distributed negativity that reflects the stimulus evaluation response including action monitoring, the early target-selection and response preparation [19]. If there were gender effects on cognitive function in patients, it should be reflected by a modulation of the N2 and/or P3 components.. The present study found the P3 component was larger for female than for male participants, for both the patient and control groups. Compared with the control group, there was a decrease in the amplitude of ...
Finally, we checked whether the same ERP component similar to N250 could be detected after the VPP components. Since previous studies have suggested that N170 and VPP components could be generated by the same neural modules, we checked whether we could find the same ERP component as N250 after VPP or not. We measured frontal activity during 250-350 ms after the stimulus onset, at FP1 and FP2 electrode sites where we measured VPP, and we called it post-VPP activity (see Methods section). Post-VPP activity, in contrast to N170, VPP, and N250 brain potentials, was not systematically affected by stimulus visibility and the only prominent difference was among ERP trials in which SOA = 500 ms, relative to the rest of the trials ( Figures 3b and 8). During both face detection and leaf detection tasks, application of a two-factor repeated measures ANOVA (stimulus category (face vs. leaf vs. other objects) × SOA (10 vs. 20 vs. 30 vs. 500 ms)) yielded a significant effects of stimulus visibility ( F , ...
Promoting prosocial behaviour in schools is of rising importance, considering how diverse our society is becoming. Short cognitive trainings have been shown to promote not only well-being but also empathy and compassion, however, their effects on childrens behaviour remain to be examined. The PhD project will be devoted to: a) the assessment of spontaneous prosocial behaviours in pre-schoolers and school children to gather data about prosociality beyond toddlerhood; b) the exploration of the effect of mindfulness-based mental training protocols on actual prosocial behaviours with an experimental approach (randomized control design); c) elaborating practices and interventions for teachers to use in their classrooms for promoting cooperation and helpfulness. The methods applied for this research will involve qualitative and quantitative behaviour analyses using relevant software.. Specific research questions: Does short-term mental training based on mindfulness techniques facilitate prosocial ...
