All neuroimaging can be considered part of brain mapping. Brain mapping can be conceived as a higher form of neuroimaging, producing brain images supplemented by the result of additional (imaging or non-imaging) data processing or analysis, such as maps projecting (measures of) behavior onto brain regions (see fMRI). One such map, called a connectogram, depicts cortical regions around a circle, organized by lobes. Concentric circles within the ring represent various common neurological measurements, such as cortical thickness or curvature. In the center of the circles, lines representing white matter fibers illustrate the connections between cortical regions, weighted by fractional anisotropy and strength of connection.[1] Brain mapping techniques are constantly evolving, and rely on the development and refinement of image acquisition, representation, analysis, visualization and interpretation techniques. [2] Functional and structural neuroimaging are at the core of the mapping aspect of brain ...

AU - Iseki, Hiroshi. AU - Takakura, Kintomo. AU - Hori, Tomokatsu. PY - 2008/1. Y1 - 2008/1. N2 - Surgery for intracranial brain lesions located in the dominant hemisphere is associated with a high risk of postoperative speech disturbances. Detection of the functionally important cortical areas can be considered as a critical factor for avoidance of postoperative morbidity and for providing the optimal rate of resection for pathologies with narrow (gliomas) or absent (epileptic focus) microscopic borders with the normal cerebral tissue. Testing of the language function can be done preoperatively with the Wada test, functional MRI, and brain mapping with electrical stimulation after implantation of stereotactic electrodes or grid, and intraoperatively with cortical mapping and electrophysiological monitoring. Awake ...

AU - Tamura, Manabu. AU - Minami, Shinji. PY - 2016/4/7. Y1 - 2016/4/7. N2 - There is a need of surgery workflow analysis to increase an efficiency of advanced medical care. Surgical Operations have been recorded by several sensors for such as postoperative analysis and incidents detection. In particular, surgical video recording is commonly used, so there are some audio-visual recorded data, and they are useful to obtain a better understandings and description of advanced surgical operations. However, the recorded videos are not usually annotated, so it is not simple to conduct computational analysis, and data annotation is necessary to handle by computer. We target videos of awake craniotomy which is a special neurosurgery in this work. The cortical mapping process is the most important for brain tumor ...
The researchers designed and evaluated a quick and simple fMRI task for use in functional brain mapping. Functional MRI can show brain activity in response to stimuli (in contrast to conventional brain MRI, which shows anatomy only). Before neurosurgery for severe epilepsy or brain tumors, functional brain mapping provides essential information on the location of critical brain areas governing speech and other functions.. The standard approach to brain mapping is direct electrocortical stimulation (ECS) - recording brain activity from electrodes placed on the brain surface. However, this requires several hours of testing and may not be applicable in all patients. Previous studies have compared fMRI techniques with ECS, but mainly for determining the side of language function (lateralization) rather than the precise location (localization).. The new fMRI task was developed and evaluated in 28 healthy volunteers and in 35 patients undergoing surgery for brain tumors or epilepsy. The test used a ...

Surgeons rely on intraoperative monitoring to evade irreparable damage to the patients sensory, auditory, and visual structures, as well as injury to the nerves that control movement and reflexes. Cortical mapping allows the surgeon to safely navigate the brain by identifying the central sulcus and localizing specific motor and sensory regions. Although pre-operative localization of both motor and sensory cortex can be done non-invasively with the use of MRI, PET, MEG, or SPECT technology, surgical resection of the brain often requires direct recording from the surface of the brain. Grid electrodes placed on the brain surface generate responses that set spatial limits for the surgeon by indicating which zones of the brain must be avoided so as to eliminate post-operative deficits. The objective of the cortical mapping procedure is to minimize operative risk and morbidity while maximizing the extent of resection.. Intraoperative monitoring (IOM) has become an essential tool during this procedure ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall objective of the present proposal is to develop, evaluate, distribute, and apply tools for quantitative meta-analysis of the human functional brain mapping (HFBM) literature. The BrainMap database may be used as an internet-based resource for retrieval, coding, and filtering papers that is required for an HFBM meta-analysis. BrainMap has been fully implemented in a multi-platform software environment (Java) and populated with ,750 papers and , 3,000 experiments (,20% of the literature meeting our inclusion criteria). It is now proposed: to extend the functionality of coordinate-based, voxel- wise meta-analysis (CVM) (Aim 1); to extend network analysis of CVM datasets (Aim 2); to create optimal high-resolution brain templates for spatial normalization that are representative of large groups of subjects (Aim 3); and to develop methods for returning functional labels and metrics of label likelihood for any given anatomical coordinate and serve these ...
The present study examined the relations between the lesions linked to visual and tactile extinction (VE and TE), and those related to visual field defects and spatial neglect. Continuous variations in patients performance were used to assess the link between behavioural scores and integrity of both grey and white matter (GM and WM). We found both common and distinct neural substrates associated with extinction and neglect. Damage to angular and middle occipital gyri, superior temporal sulcus (STS) and insula were linked to VE. Lesions involving the supramarginal gyrus (SMG), intraparietal sulcus, middle frontal and superior temporal gyri (MFG and STG) were associated exclusively with spatial neglect. Lesions affecting the temporo-parietal junction (TPJ), the middle temporal region, middle frontal area (BA46) as well as the insula and putamen were linked to both spatial neglect and VE. Analysis of the relations between VE and TE highlighted the TPJ as the common site for both modalities. These findings
HBM 2000 will bring more than a thousand scientists from the international brain mapping community to Texas, said Dr. Peter T.

A range of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques are widely used for mapping of brain functions in humans and animals, but they have a major limitation in common: They record indirect measures such as blood oxygenation changes. In the Lundbeck Foundation Experiment project, a team lead by Dr. Hanson will develop a fundamentally new and direct technique for mapping tiny magnetic field changes caused by fluctuating neuronal currents. The magnetic field changes are in principle measurable inside the brain by MRI, but the measurement times are too long to capture the fast field changes. The project proposes a robust imaging method that will improve the time resolution to a tenth of a second, thus offering a unique tool for direct mapping of brain activity, identified by comparing simultaneously recorded MRI and electrical measurements of brain activity (electroencephalography, EEG). The method will open up fundamentally novel avenues in basic and clinical neuroimaging. The aim is to ...

Protocols build new bridges around potentially damaged or mal-functioning parts of the brain. New neuropathways are created through the efforts of computer generated, patient specific protocols of alternating lights and sound waves. This method of brain exercising is equal to exercising your body in the gym. As stated above, your brain is not altered. Rather, unused or under-used areas of the brain are stimulated in order to retrain the parts of the brain that are not operating optimally. This is why it is referred to as Brain Training. Cellular memory causes the brain to function in the same old way. Retraining the brain stimulates the neuropathways and allows your brain to operate optimally ...

In the present study, we sought to investigate how the neural patterns associated with the contents of VSTM change as a function of load. Consistent with several recent studies, we observed that stimulus-specific properties of information maintained in VSTM could be decoded from the patterns of activity in sensory cortex (Ester et al., 2009; Harrison and Tong, 2009; Serences et al., 2009; Riggall and Postle, 2012). We have extended these previous findings by demonstrating that the successful classification of the contents of VSTM is not an all-or-none phenomenon; instead, classification sensitivity varies as a function of VSTM load. Therefore, these findings reveal the presence of load sensitivity in the patterns of activity in sensory cortex, providing strong evidence that these patterns may represent a neural correlate of VSTM maintenance.. We also observed a significant within-subject correlation between classifier sensitivity and mnemonic precision. This finding provides some of the first ...
We do realize and explicitly acknowledge (e.g., Fedorenko et al., 2010, J Neurophys, p. 1178) that some researchers have used individual subject analyses previously (we apologize for not including your studies in this list; we will do that in the future). However, as we note in the paper, to the best of our knowledge, prior to our 2010 paper (and efforts in the clinical literature to localize language-sensitive cortex using fMRI, which have not been adopted in the non-clinical literature), no contrast aimed at localizing language-sensitive brain regions has been validated, i.e., shown to pick out the same regions reliably within and across subjects. Without independent validation of the functional localizer contrasts, it may be difficult to interpret the responses of the ROIs to the critical condition of interest. What are needed are not "ad hoc" localizers that are different across different studies / labs but standardized ones that have been shown to effectively identify the target regions. ...

The fluctuations in a brain regions activation levels over a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) time-course are used in functional connectivity (FC) to identify networks with synchronous responses. It is increasingly recognized that multi-voxel activity patterns contain information that cannot be extracted from univariate activation levels. Here we present a novel analysis method that quantifies regions synchrony in multi-voxel activity pattern discriminability, rather than univariate activation, across a timeseries. We introduce a measure of multi-voxel pattern discriminability at each time-point, which is then used to identify regions that share synchronous time-courses of condition-specific multi-voxel information. This method has the sensitivity and access to distributed information that multi-voxel pattern analysis enjoys, allowing it to be applied to data from conditions not separable by univariate responses. We demonstrate this by analyzing data collected while people viewed four

A large-scale, coordinate-based meta-analysis of task-related deactivations was performed on studies archived in the BrainMap database to identify consistent nodes of the default mode network. Using ALE (Eickhoff et al., 2009b), DMN regions were identified in the precuneus, posterior and ventral anterior cingulate cortices, medial prefrontal cortex, bilateral inferior parietal lobules, bilateral middle temporal gyri, and left middle frontal gyrus. For each DMN node, behavioral profiles were constructed using BrainMap tools to quantitatively assess their functional attributes when active (not during rest), and MACM were created to identify dissociable patterns of functional connectivity when unconstrained by any specific task. MACM maps were compared to determine which DMN nodes had the greatest degree of connectivity with other nodes, yielding a meta-analytic model of connectivity between default mode regions. Behavioral profiles of node sets were tested to determine significant functional ...
The intrinsic functional connectivity networks of human lateral frontal cortex are displayed for a 4-mm seed region that is gradually moved along the cortical surface. The functional connectivity networks are estimated on the surface using resting-state functional MRI data from 1000 young adults. The seed region begins in a region at or near the human homologue of FEF and gradually moves through distinct lateral frontal regions including those primarily coupled to limbic regions. The borders reflect estimates of networks from the 17-network parcellation of Yeo et al. (2011; see Figure 13). Note that multiple interdigitated networks converge on contiguous regions of frontal cortex. Some of these regions are embedded within sensory-motor circuits; others are absent coupling to sensory or motor regions and are embedded within networks comprising what has come to be known as the default network. Thus, human lateral frontal cortex represents a nexus of multiple, interdigitated association pathways. ...

Eye contact provides a communicative link between humans, prompting joint attention. As spontaneous brain activity might have an important role in the coordination of neuronal processing within the brain, their inter-subject synchronization might occur during eye contact. To test this, we conducted simultaneous functional MRI in pairs of adults. Eye contact was maintained at baseline while the subjects engaged in real-time gaze exchange in a joint attention task. Averted gaze activated the bilateral occipital pole extending to the right posterior superior temporal sulcus, the dorso-medial prefrontal cortex, and the bilateral inferior frontal gyrus. Following a partners gaze toward an object activated the left intraparietal sulcus. After all the task-related effects were modeled out, inter-individual correlation analysis of residual time-courses was performed. Paired subjects showed more prominent correlations than non-paired subjects in the right inferior frontal gyrus, suggesting that this ...

In addition, MT can strengthen the functional connectivity between the SMC and SMA. In the contralateral hemisphere, both movement complexity and visual direction showed significant main effects in the SMC, while only movement complexity showed a significant main effect in the SMA and SPL. The precuneus of both sides was deactivated and showed no significant difference among the four conditions ...
OBJECTIVE: Elevated levels of cardiac troponin, and especially their relative changes over time, indicate acute myocardial injury. They are also frequently observed after acute ischemic stroke (AIS), indicating poor functional outcome and increased mortality. However, recent evidence showed that, in most AIS patients, myocardial injury is not caused by coronary ischemia. Instead, stroke lesion location has been suggested to precipitate myocardial injury. METHODS: Voxel-based lesion-symptom mapping (VLSM) was used in 299 patients who had a magnetic resonance imaging-confirmed acute ischemic stroke within the anterior circulation and a high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) acquired on the day of admission ...

By CATHY ELSINGER, PhD. Recent advances in functional neuroimaging techniques have revolutionized the approach to surgical planning. Blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional MRI (fMRI) is a noninvasive imaging tool with enormous potential in the field of brain mapping, combining high-resolution anatomical images and physiological information. Functional imaging data provides critical information to the neurosurgeon in terms of deciding which therapy to employ and in considering therapeutic approaches that might otherwise be dismissed due to perceived procedural risk. Adopting fMRI technology for clinical brain mapping has increased not only due to improved outcomes but also in part to the introduction of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes which provide a mechanism for insurance reimbursement.. During the early years of BOLD imaging, software for stimulus delivery and analysis of BOLD imaging data was developed by researchers and available as freeware. Peripheral equipment for ...
In a healthy young brain, activity in the DMN quickly diminishes when a person engages in an activity that requires focus on the external environment. Older people, people with Alzheimers disease and those who are schizophrenic have more difficulty "down-regulating" the DMN so that other brain networks can come to the fore, Kramer said.. A recent study by Kramer, Voss and their colleagues found that older adults who are more fit tend to have better connectivity in specific regions of the DMN than their sedentary peers. Those with more connectivity in the DMN also tend to be better at planning, prioritizing, strategizing and multi-tasking.. The new study used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to determine whether aerobic activity increased connectivity in the DMN or other brain networks. The researchers measured participants brain connectivity and performance on cognitive tasks at the beginning of the study, at six months and after a year of either walking or toning and ...

In sensorimotor integration, sensory input and motor output signals are combined to provide an internal estimate of the state of both the world and ones own body. Although a single perceptual and motor snapshot can provide information about the current state, computational models show that the state can be optimally estimated by a recursive process in which an internal estimate is maintained and updated by the current sensory and motor signals. These models predict that an internal state estimate is maintained or stored in the brain. Here we report a patient with a lesion of the superior parietal lobe who shows both sensory and motor deficits consistent with an inability to maintain such an internal representation between updates. Our findings suggest that the superior parietal lobe is critical for sensorimotor integration, by maintaining an internal representation of the bodys state.
Food cues were associated with increased blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) response in the left amygdala, bilateral insula, bilateral orbital frontal cortex, and striatum. Smoking cues were associated with increased BOLD signal in the same areas, with the exception of the insula. However, the smoking meta-analysis of brain maps correlating cue-reactivity with subjective craving did identify the insula, suggesting that insula activation is only found when craving levels are high. The brain areas identified here are involved in learning, memory and motivation, and their cue-induced activity is an index of the incentive salience of the cues ...
Nociceptive processing within the human brain takes place within two distinct and parallel systems: the lateral and medial pain systems. Current knowledge indicates that the lateral system is involved in processing the sensory-discriminative aspects of pain, and that the medial system is involved in processing the affective-motivational aspects of pain. Hemispheric differences in brain activation (lateralisation) during nociceptive processing were studied to further clarify the division of function between the lateral and medial pain systems. Hemispheric lateralisation was studied by applying painful CO(2) laser stimuli of 3-s duration sequentially to the left and right medial lower calves of five normal right-handed human subjects. The resultant brain activity was measured using 3-T functional magnetic resonance imaging, by determining significant changes in blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) signal and applying a general linear modelling approach. Volumes of interest were defined for the primary and
Below it, projection fibers arising from the cortex and directed towards the internal capsule, together with fibers ascending from below towards the cortex, form the "corona radiata". The former occupy a narrow space on each side of the bodies of the lateral ventricles. Similarly, a special contingent of fibers comes from the lateral geniculate body and reaches the occipital cortex, passing laterally to the occipital horn of the lateral ventricles, be- ing more horizontally oriented. e. the final part of the visual pathway.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: We identified 26 surgically na,fkve patients referred for presurgical fMRI brain mapping who had undergone both satisfactory ventral motor activation tasks and resting-state fMRI. Following standard preprocessing for task-based fMRI and resting-state fMRI, general linear model analysis of the ventral motor tasks and independent component analysis of resting-state fMRI were performed with the number of components set to 20, 30, 40, and 50. Visual overlap of task-based fMRI and resting-state fMRI at different component levels was assessed and categorized as full match, partial match, or no match. Rest-versus-task-fMRI concordance was calculated with Dice coefficients across varying fMRI thresholds before and after noise removal. Multithresholded Dice coefficient volume under the surface was calculated. ...
The human pulvinar is the largest thalamic area in terms of size and cortical connectivity. Although much is known about regional pulvinar structural anatomy, relatively little is known about pulvinar functional anatomy in humans. Cooccurrence of experimentally induced brain activity is a traditional metric used to establish interregional brain connectivity and forms the foundation of functional neuroimaging connectivity analyses. Because functional neuroimaging studies report task-related coactivations within a standardized space, meta-analysis of many whole-brain studies can define the brains interregional coactivation across many tasks. Such an analysis can also detect and define variations in functional coactivations within a particular region. Here we use coactivation profiles reported in ∼ 7,700 functional neuroimaging studies to parcellate and define the pulvinars functional anatomy. Parcellation of the pulvinars coactivation profile identified five clusters per pulvinar of distinct
Recent neuroimaging evidence in macaques has shown that the neural system underlying the observation of hand actions performed by others (i.e., action observation system) is modulated by whether the observed action is performed by a person in full view or an isolated hand (i.e., type of view manipulation). Although a human homologue of such circuit has been identified, whether in humans the neural processes involved in this capacity are modulated by the type of view remains unknown. Here we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate whether the action observation system, with specific reference to the ventral premotor cortex, responds differentially depending on type of view. We also tested this manipulation within regions of the human brain showing overlapping activity for both the observation and the execution of action (mirror regions). To this end, the same subjects were requested to observe grasping actions performed under the two types of view (observation conditions)

Recent advances have identified over one hundred genes that affect a persons risk of developing schizophrenia. However, in most cases the pathways linking these individual genes with whole brain function are unclear. A new study from researchers in the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA) suggests that the link between one gene, known as ZNF804A, and schizophrenia arises from its effects on rhythmic brain activity. Rhythmic activity patterns provide a means for encoding information in the brain and are abnormal in patients with schizophrenia. One type of brain rhythm, theta activity, is generated in a region called the hippocampus and co-ordinates activity across the whole brain, allowing networks of brain regions to work together efficiently. The study compared activity in the hippocampus measured using two types of brain imaging, fMRI and MEG, between healthy people who carry the schizophrenia-risk form of ZNF804A, with those who do not. Using MEG, the researchers showed for the ...

Normal frequencies of the human brain associated states are shown below. These frequencies can be picked up by an EEG (Electroencephalogram) from the surface of the brain, after their amplification, as they are in the range of micro-volts. A mixture of these frequencies is present at any given time. Quantitative Electroencephalography (QEEG) is an extension of the analysis of the visual EEG interpretation which may assist and even augment our understanding of the EEG and brain function. QEEG is a procedure that processes the recorded EEG activity from a multi-electrode recording using a computer and converts it into a brain map showing different brain waves ...

Neural connections, providing the substrate for functional networks, exist whether or not they are functionally active at any given moment. However, it is not known to what extent brain regions are continuously interacting when the brain is at rest. In this work, we identify the major explicit activation networks by carrying out an image-based activation network analysis of thousands of separate activation maps derived from the BrainMap database of functional imaging studies, involving nearly 30,000 human subjects. Independently, we extract the major covarying networks in the resting brain, as imaged with functional magnetic resonance imaging in 36 subjects at rest. The sets of major brain networks, and their decompositions into subnetworks, show close correspondence between the independent analyses of resting and activation brain dynamics. We conclude that the full repertoire of functional networks utilized by the brain in action is continuously and dynamically active even when at rest.

The 32 teenagers, ages 13-18, were told they were participating in a small social network similar to the popular photo-sharing app, Instagram. In an experiment at UCLAs Ahmanson-Lovelace Brain Mapping Center, the researchers showed them 148 photographs on a computer screen for 12 minutes, including 40 photos that each teenager submitted, and analyzed their brain activity using functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI. …. "When the teens saw their own photos with a large number of likes, we saw activity across a wide variety of regions in the brain," said lead author Lauren Sherman, a researcher in the brain mapping center and the UCLA branch of the Childrens Digital Media Center, Los Angeles.. A region that was especially active is a part of the striatum called the nucleus accumbens, which is part of the brains reward circuitry, she said. This reward circuitry is thought to be particularly sensitive during adolescence. When the teenagers saw their photos with a large number of likes, ...
Our understanding of the human default mode network derives primarily from neuroimaging data but its electrophysiological correlates remain largely unexplored. To address this limitation, we recorded intracranially from the human posteromedial cortex (PMC), a core structure of the default mode network, during various conditions of internally directed (e.g., autobiographical memory) as opposed to externally directed focus (e.g., arithmetic calculation). We observed late-onset (,400 ms) increases in broad high γ-power (70-180 Hz) within PMC subregions during memory retrieval. High γ-power was significantly reduced or absent when subjects retrieved self-referential semantic memories or responded to self-judgment statements, respectively. Conversely, a significant deactivation of high γ-power was observed during arithmetic calculation, the duration of which correlated with reaction time at the signal-trial level. Strikingly, at each recording site, the magnitude of activation during episodic ...
Human participants completed a questionnaire assessing lucid dreaming ability, and underwent structural and functional MRI. We split participants based on their reported dream lucidity. Participants in the high-lucidity group showed greater gray matter volume in the frontopolar cortex (BA9/10) compared with those in the low-lucidity group. Further, differences in brain structure were mirrored by differences in brain function. The BA9/10 regions identified through structural analyses showed increases in blood oxygen level-dependent signal during thought monitoring in both groups, and more strongly in the high-lucidity group ...
