Laboratory for Neuro- and Psychophysiology, Department of Neurosciences, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.

The neural principles behind semantic category representation are still under debate. Dominant theories mostly focus on distinguishing concrete from abstract concepts but, in such theories, divisions into categories of concrete concepts are more developed than for their abstract counterparts. An encompassing theory on semantic category representation could be within reach when charting the semantic attributes that are capable of describing both concept types. Read More

Seda Senay

Healthc Technol Lett 2018 Dec 15;5(6):242-246. Epub 2018 Nov 15.

Electrical Engineering Department, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, Socorro, NM 87801, USA.

Time-frequency (TF) representations are very important tools to understand and explain circumstances, where the frequency content of non-stationary signals varies in time. A variety of biosignals such as speech, electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalogram (EEG), and electromyogram (EMG) show some form of non-stationarity. Considering Priestley's evolutionary (time-dependent) spectral theory for analysis of non-stationary signals, the authors defined a TF representation called evolutionary Slepian transform (EST).

Brain Topogr 2018 Dec 3. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Functional Brain Mapping Lab, Department of Fundamental Neurosciences, University of Geneva, Campus Biotech, Chemin des Mines 9, 1202, Geneva, Switzerland.

In the last decade, the use of high-density electrode arrays for EEG recordings combined with the improvements of source reconstruction algorithms has allowed the investigation of brain networks dynamics at a sub-second scale. One powerful tool for investigating large-scale functional brain networks with EEG is time-varying effective connectivity applied to source signals obtained from electric source imaging. Due to computational and interpretation limitations, the brain is usually parcelled into a limited number of regions of interests (ROIs) before computing EEG connectivity. Read More

Evidence exists that negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) combined with a split thickness skin graft (STSG) can help to heal wounds with FG. However, when the wound spreads to the anal area, it can easily be contaminated by faeces, causing a more extensive wounds; thus, faecal diversion is considered. Read More

Venous Congestion in Pedicled Frontal Branch Superficial Temporal Artery Flaps Reconstructions for Head and Neck Defects: A Review.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Mar;82(3):330-336

The superficial temporal artery (STA) flap is a versatile flap for head and neck defect reconstruction. It can be based on the frontal branch of the STA and an islanded 360-degree rotation arc for various defects on the scalp, cheek, and auricular region. It provides a nonmicrosurgical option for reconstructing such defects, which is itself relatively easy to perform. Read More

Comparison of Musculocutaneous and Fasciocutaneous Free Flaps for the Reconstruction of the Extensive Composite Scalp and Cranium Defects.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Oct;29(7):1947-1951

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine, Sihhiye.

Composite scalp and cranium defects, which require microsurgical reconstruction, result from tumor resection, radiation, trauma, severe burn injuries, and rarely vasculitic disorders. In the current study, the authors aim to compare the outcomes of the fasciocutaneous flaps and musculocutaneous free flaps used for the reconstruction of extensive composite scalp and cranium defects. From 2010 to 2017, 21 patients who underwent composite scalp and cranium defect reconstruction with a free flap were retrospectively identified. Read More
