Presurgical temporal lobe epilepsy connectome fingerprint for seizure outcome prediction.

Brain Commun 2022 17;4(3):fcac128. Epub 2022 May 17.

Institute of Imaging Science, Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, 1161 21st Avenue South, R0102 MCN, Nashville, TN 37232, USA.

Temporal lobe epilepsy presents a unique situation where confident clinical localization of the seizure focus does not always result in a seizure-free or favourable outcome after mesial temporal surgery. In this work, magnetic resonance imaging derived functional and structural whole-brain connectivity was used to compute a network fingerprint that captures the connectivity profile characteristics that are common across a group of nine of these patients with seizure-free outcome. The connectivity profile was then computed for 38 left-out patients with the hypothesis that similarity to the fingerprint indicates seizure-free surgical outcome. Read More

Experimental suppression of transcranial magnetic stimulation-electroencephalography sensory potentials.

Hum Brain Mapp 2022 Jun 30. Epub 2022 Jun 30.

Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Healthcare System, and the Sierra Pacific Mental Illness, Research, Education, and Clinical Center (MIRECC), Palo Alto, California, USA.

The sensory experience of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) evokes cortical responses measured in electroencephalography (EEG) that confound interpretation of TMS-evoked potentials (TEPs). Methods for sensory masking have been proposed to minimize sensory contributions to the TEP, but the most effective combination for suprathreshold TMS to dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (dlPFC) is unknown. We applied sensory suppression techniques and quantified electrophysiology and perception from suprathreshold dlPFC TMS to identify the best combination to minimize the sensory TEP. Read More

Waveform detection by deep learning reveals multi-area spindles that are selectively modulated by memory load.

Elife 2022 06 29;11. Epub 2022 Jun 29.

Department of Mathematics, Western University, London, Canada.

Sleep is generally considered to be a state of large-scale synchrony across thalamus and neocortex; however, recent work has challenged this idea by reporting isolated sleep rhythms such as slow oscillations and spindles. What is the spatial scale of sleep rhythms? To answer this question, we adapted deep learning algorithms initially developed for detecting earthquakes and gravitational waves in high-noise settings for analysis of neural recordings in sleep. We then studied sleep spindles in non-human primate electrocorticography (ECoG), human electroencephalogram (EEG), and clinical intracranial electroencephalogram (iEEG) recordings in the human.

J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol 2022 Jun 28. Epub 2022 Jun 28.

Carney Institute for Brain Science, Brown University, Providence, RI, 02912, USA.

We introduce two EEG techniques, one based on conventional monopolar electrodes and one based on a novel tripolar electrode, to record for the first time auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) from the scalp of unanesthetized, unrestrained big brown bats. Stimuli were frequency-modulated (FM) sweeps varying in sweep direction, sweep duration, and harmonic structure. As expected from previous invasive ABR recordings, upward-sweeping FM signals evoked larger amplitude responses (peak-to-trough amplitude in the latency range of 3-5 ms post-stimulus onset) than downward-sweeping FM signals.
