Look at me when I'm talking to you: Selective attention at a multisensory cocktail party can be decoded using stimulus reconstruction and alpha power modulations.

Eur J Neurosci 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

School of Engineering, Trinity Centre for Bioengineering and Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Recent work using EEG has applied stimulus reconstruction techniques to identify the attended speaker in a cocktail party environment. The success of these approaches has been primarily based on the ability to detect cortical tracking of the acoustic envelope at the scalp level. However, most studies have ignored the effects of visual input, which is almost always present in naturalistic scenarios. Read More

Quantifying the Effect of Demixing Approaches on Directed Connectivity Estimated Between Reconstructed EEG Sources.

Brain Topogr 2019 Apr 10. Epub 2019 Apr 10.

Department of Data Analysis, Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, University of Ghent, 2 Henri Dunantlaan, 9000, Ghent, Belgium.

Electrical activity recorded on the scalp using electroencephalography (EEG) results from the mixing of signals originating from different regions of the brain as well as from artifactual sources. In order to investigate the role of distinct brain areas in a given experiment, the signal recorded on the sensors is typically projected back into the brain (source reconstruction) using algorithms that address the so-called EEG "inverse problem". Once the activity of sources located inside of the brain has been reconstructed, it is often desirable to study the statistical dependencies among them, in particular to quantify directional dynamical interactions between brain areas.

Closure of a full-thickness scalp burn that occurred during hair coloring using a simple skin-stretching method: A case report and review of the literature.

Authors:
Suk Joon Oh

Arch Plast Surg 2019 Mar 31;46(2):167-170. Epub 2019 Mar 31.

Department of Burn Reconstructive Surgery, Bestian Seoul Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Full-thickness scalp burns secondary to hair coloring are rare; however, such defects can be large and complex reconstruction of hair-bearing tissue may be necessary. Many skin-stretching devices that use gradual traction have been applied to take advantage of the viscoelastic properties of the skin. A 21-year-old female patient was seen with a burn defect on her occipital scalp leading to exposed subcutaneous tissue after chemical application of hair coloring in a salon. Read More

Capturing the spatiotemporal dynamics of self-generated, task-initiated thoughts with EEG and fMRI.

Neuroimage 2019 Mar 19;194:82-92. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Laboratory for Functional and Metabolic Imaging, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland.

The temporal structure of self-generated cognition is a key attribute to the formation of a meaningful stream of consciousness. When at rest, our mind wanders from thought to thought in distinct mental states. Despite the marked importance of ongoing mental processes, it is challenging to capture and relate these states to specific cognitive contents. Read More

Multi-Resolution Graph Based Volumetric Cortical Basis Functions from Local Anatomic Features.

IEEE Trans Biomed Eng 2019 Mar 13. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Objective: Modern clinical MRI collects millimeter scale anatomic information, but scalp electroencephalography (EEG) source localization (ESL) is ill-posed, and cannot resolve individual sources at that resolution. Dimensionality reduction in the space of cortical sources is needed to improve computational and storage complexity. Surface based cortical source models allow scalable complexity, but volumetric methods still employ simplistic grid coarsening that eliminates fine scale anatomic structure. Read More

EEG decoding of the target speaker in a cocktail party scenario: considerations regarding dynamic switching of talker location.

J Neural Eng 2019 Mar 5;16(3):036017. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

School of Engineering, Trinity College Dublin, University of Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. Trinity Centre for Bioengineering, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland.

Objective: It has been shown that attentional selection in a simple dichotic listening paradigm can be decoded offline by reconstructing the stimulus envelope from single-trial neural response data. Here, we test the efficacy of this approach in an environment with non-stationary talkers. We then look beyond the envelope reconstructions themselves and consider whether incorporating the decoder values-which reflect the weightings applied to the multichannel EEG data at different time lags and scalp locations when reconstructing the stimulus envelope-can improve decoding performance.

Hospital Clínico San Carlos, Cibersam, Madrid, Spain.

Although response inhibition is thought to be important in borderline personality disorder (BPD), little is known about its neurophysiological basis. This study aimed to provide insight into this issue by capitalizaing on the high temporal resolution of electroencephalography and information provided by source localization methods. To this end, twenty unmedicated patients with BPD and 20 healthy control subjects performed a modified go/no-go task designed to better isolate the brain activity specifically associated with response inhibition.

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).

IMPROVEMENT OF THE DERMATENSION METHOD IN THE RECONSTRUCTIVE-RECOVERY SURGERY OF DEFECTS OF SOFT TISSUES OF VARIOUS ETIOLOGY.

Georgian Med News 2018 Oct(283):7-10

Kharkov Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Ukraine.

The problem of treating patients with loss of the skin and with a complicated course of the wound process remains topical. The problem is that, despite the relative technical simplicity of the dermatension method, the most significant complication is the decubitus of the stretchable flap, which is associated with a relatively high incidence of acute blood circulatory disturbances in the stretch tissues due to vascular compression with an excessive amount of injected fluid. The aim of the work is to improve the method of dermatension in reconstructive and recovery surgery of soft tissue defects of various genesis by planning and implementing dermatension at all its steps with instrumental control of the process using ultrasound and ICT in a complex.

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

DICEAM Department, Mediterranea University of Reggio Calabria, Via Graziella Feo di Vito, 89060 Reggio Calabria, Italy.

Stroke is a critical event that causes the disruption of neural connections. There is increasing evidence that the brain tries to reorganize itself and to replace the damaged circuits, by establishing compensatory pathways. Intra- and extra-cellular currents are involved in the communication between neurons and the macroscopic effects of such currents can be detected at the scalp through electroencephalographic (EEG) sensors.

Dural Reconstruction With Autologous Rectus Fascia: A New Technique for Addressing Large-Sized Defects During Cranioplasty.

J Craniofac Surg 2018 Nov 13. Epub 2018 Nov 13.

Department of Neurosurgery, Multidisciplinary Adult Cranioplasty Center.

Introduction: Patients requiring cranioplasty reconstruction with customized cranial implants may unexpectedly present with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks and durotomies following previous neurosurgical procedures. As such, multiple factors influence the type of dural reconstruction chosen at this time, which are essential for achieving long-term success. Overall, the most common material used for duraplasty is currently an "off-the-shelf" xenograft construct. Read More

Flattening the curvature of synthetic materials to relieve scalp skin tension in cranioplasty.

J Clin Neurosci 2019 Mar 9;61:196-200. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Neurosurgery, Sapporo Medical University, Japan.

Background: Scalp tissue shrinkage and volume contraction is a major problem in cranioplasty, and sometimes a tissue expander must be set before cranioplasty. The procedure for placing scalp expanders is cumbersome. In this study, we present a method for flattening the curvature of synthetic materials to relieve scalp skin tension and discuss the feasibility and limitations of the method. Read More

Reconstruction of composite defects of the scalp and neurocranium-a treatment algorithm from local flaps to combined AV loop free flap reconstruction.

World J Surg Oncol 2018 Nov 7;16(1):217. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Plastic and Hand Surgery, University Hospital of Erlangen, Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuernberg, Krankenhausstr. 12, 91054, Erlangen, Germany.

Background: Reconstruction of cranial composite defects, including all layers of the scalp and the neurocranium, poses an interdisciplinary challenge. Especially after multiple previous operations and/or radiation therapy, sufficient reconstruction is often only possible using microsurgical free flap transplantation. The aim of this study was to analyze the therapy of interdisciplinary cases with composite defects including the scalp and neurocranium. Read More

Full-Thickness Skin Grafting for Local Defect Coverage Following Scalp Adjacent Tissue Transfer in the Setting of Cranioplasty.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jan;30(1):115-119

Neuroplastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Introduction: Numerous techniques have been described to overcome scalp deficiency and high-tension closure at time of cranioplasty. However, there is an existing controversy, over when and if a free flap is needed during complex skull reconstruction (ie, cranioplasty). As such the authors present here our experience using full-thickness skin grafts (FTSGs) to cover local defects following scalp adjacent tissue transfer in the setting of cranioplasty. Read More

Acute otitis externa because of negative pressure wound therapy applied over the head and ear canal for scalping treatment.

Int Wound J 2019 Apr 31;16(2):559-563. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Department of Surgery and Anatomy, Ribeirão Preto Medical School, University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto-SP, Brazil.

Scalping is considered a complex wound with difficult treatment, requiring early surgical intervention, reconstructive plastic surgery, and a multidisciplinary team. The reconstruction of the scalp frequently requires a combination of therapies, including temporary coverage, such as negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). Complications of NPWT, such as bleeding, infection, and pain, have been described. Read More

Reverse Anterolateral Thigh Flap for Complex Scalp Reconstruction.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jan;30(1):167-168

Division of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Cosmetic Surgery, University of Illinois Hospital and Health Science System.

It is common for patients diagnosed with severe traumatic brain injury or intracranial tumors to undergo multiple craniotomy and cranioplasty procedures. In the setting of infection, these patients can develop scalp wounds with no local options. A reverse flow anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap for coverage of a complex multifocal scalp wound in a patient with exposed cranioplasty mesh and multiple prior operations without necessitating vein grafts was presented.
