Effect of Acute Psychological Stress on Motion-in-Depth Perception: An Event-Related Potential Study.

Adv Cogn Psychol 2020 16;16(4):353-362. Epub 2020 Dec 16.

Department of Psychology, Wuhan Institute of Physical Education, Wuhan, China2.

The present study explored the intrinsic event-related potential (ERP) features of the effects of acute psychological stress on the processing of motion-in-depth perception using a dual-task paradigm. After a mental arithmetic task was used to induce acute psychological stress, a collision task was used to evaluate motion-in-depth perception. The error value and average amplitude of late slow waves (SW) were significantly larger for the earlier colliding spheres' than for the later colliding spheres. Read More

EEG measures for clinical research in major vascular cognitive impairment: recommendations by an expert panel.

Neurobiol Aging 2021 Jul 10;103:78-97. Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA), School of Psychiatry, University of New South Wales; Neuropsychiatric Institute, The Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney, Australia.

Vascular contribution to cognitive impairment (VCI) and dementia is related to etiologies that may affect the neurophysiological mechanisms regulating brain arousal and generating electroencephalographic (EEG) activity. A multidisciplinary expert panel reviewed the clinical literature and reached consensus about the EEG measures consistently found as abnormal in VCI patients with dementia. As compared to cognitively unimpaired individuals, those VCI patients showed (1) smaller amplitude of resting state alpha (8-12 Hz) rhythms dominant in posterior regions; (2) widespread increases in amplitude of delta (< 4 Hz) and theta (4-8 Hz) rhythms; and (3) delayed N200/P300 peak latencies in averaged event-related potentials, especially during the detection of auditory rare target stimuli requiring participants' responses in "oddball" paradigms.

Standardized measurement error: A universal metric of data quality for averaged event-related potentials.

Psychophysiology 2021 Jun 29;58(6):e13793. Epub 2021 Mar 29.

Department of Psychology, University of California, Davis, CA, USA.

Event-related potentials (ERPs) can be very noisy, and yet, there is no widely accepted metric of ERP data quality. Here, we propose a universal measure of data quality for ERP research-the standardized measurement error (SME)-which is a special case of the standard error of measurement. Whereas some existing metrics provide a generic quantification of the noise level, the SME quantifies the data quality (precision) for the specific amplitude or latency value being measured in a given study (e.

Experimental sleep restriction increases latency jitter in pain elicited cortical responses.

Heliyon 2021 Feb 12;7(2):e06188. Epub 2021 Feb 12.

National Institute of Occupational Health, Department of Work Psychology and Physiology, Gydas vei 8, 0363, Oslo, Norway.

Objective: Previous studies have shown increased pain scores to painful stimulation after experimental sleep restriction, but reduced or unchanged magnitude of the event related potentials (ERPs) when averaged in the time-domain. However, some studies found increased response magnitude when averaging in the time-frequency domain. The aim of this study was to determine whether ERP-latency jitter may contribute to this discrepancy. Read More

Analysing spectral changes over time to identify articulatory impairments in dysarthria.

J Acoust Soc Am 2021 Feb;149(2):758

LPP, UMR 7018, CNRS/University Sorbonne-Nouvelle, Paris, France.

Identifying characteristics of articulatory impairment in speech motor disorders is complicated due to the time-consuming nature of kinematic measures. The goal is to explore whether analysing the acoustic signal in terms of total squared changes of Mel-Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (TSC_MFCC) and its pattern over time provides sufficient spectral information to distinguish mild and moderate dysarthric French speakers with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's Disease (PD) from each other and from healthy speakers. Participants produced the vowel-glide sequences /ajajaj/, /ujujuj/, and /wiwiwi/. Read More

Conflict Processing in Schizophrenia: Dissociable neural mechanisms revealed by the N2 and frontal midline theta.

Neuropsychologia 2021 05 18;155:107791. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Shanghai Mental Health Center, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, 200030, China. Electronic address:

Deficits in executive control have long been regarded as one of the hallmark cognitive characteristics in people with schizophrenia (SZ), and current neurocognitive models of SZ generally regard the dysfunctional anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) as the possible neural mechanism. This however, contrasts with recent studies showing that conflict processing, a key component of executive functions that relies on ACC, remains relatively intact in SZ. The current study aimed to investigate this issue through two well-known electrophysiological signatures of conflict processing that have been suggested to originate from ACC, i. Read More

Can Event-Related Potentials Evoked by Heel Lance Assess Pain Processing in Neonates? A Systematic Review.

Children (Basel) 2021 Jan 20;8(2). Epub 2021 Jan 20.

Division of Nursing Sciences, Graduate School of Biomedical and Health Sciences, Hiroshima University, Hiroshima 734-8553, Japan.

To clarify the possibility of event-related potential (ERP) evoked by heel lance in neonates as an index of pain assessment, knowledge acquired by and problems of the methods used in studies on ERP evoked by heel lance in neonates were systematically reviewed, including knowledge about Aδ and C fibers responding to noxious stimuli and Aβ fibers responding to non-noxious stimuli. Of the 863 reports searched, 19 were selected for the final analysis. The following points were identified as problems for ERP evoked by heel lance in neonates to serve as a pain assessment index: (1) It is possible that the ERP evoked by heel lance reflected the activation of Aβ fibers responding to non-noxious stimuli and not the activation of Aδ or C fibers responding to noxious stimulation; (2) Sample size calculation was presented in few studies, and the number of stimulation trials to obtain an averaged ERP was small.

Reduced Visual Magnocellular Event-Related Potentials in Developmental Dyslexia.

John Stein

Brain Sci 2021 Jan 5;11(1). Epub 2021 Jan 5.

Deptment Physiology, Anatomy & Genetics, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3PT, UK.

(1) Background-the magnocellular hypothesis proposes that impaired development of the visual timing systems in the brain that are mediated by magnocellular (M-) neurons is a major cause of dyslexia. Their function can now be assessed quite easily by analysing averaged visually evoked event-related potentials (VERPs) in the electroencephalogram (EEG). Such analysis might provide a useful, objective biomarker for diagnosing developmental dyslexia. Read More

Accurate hemodynamic response estimation by removal of stimulus-evoked superficial response in fNIRS signals.

J Neural Eng 2021 Jan 13. Epub 2021 Jan 13.

Information Engineering, University of Padua, via G. Gradenigo, 6/b, Padova, I-35131, ITALY.

We address the problem of hemodynamic response estimation when task-evoked extra-cerebral components are present in functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) signals. These components might bias the hemodynamic response estimation, therefore careful and accurate denoising of data is needed.We propose a dictionary-based algorithm to process every single event-related segment of the acquired signal for both long separation and short separation channels.

Electrophysiological Dynamics of Visual-Tactile Temporal Order Perception in Early Deaf Adults.

Front Neurosci 2020 23;14:544472. Epub 2020 Sep 23.

Department of Psychology, University of Nevada, Reno, Reno, NV, United States.

Studies of compensatory plasticity in early deaf (ED) individuals have mainly focused on unisensory processing, and on spatial rather than temporal coding. However, precise discrimination of the temporal relationship between stimuli is imperative for successful perception of and interaction with the complex, multimodal environment. Although the properties of cross-modal temporal processing have been extensively studied in neurotypical populations, remarkably little is known about how the loss of one sense impacts the integrity of temporal interactions among the remaining senses.

Improving the Cross-Subject Performance of the ERP-Based Brain-Computer Interface Using Rapid Serial Visual Presentation and Correlation Analysis Rank.

Front Hum Neurosci 2020 31;14:296. Epub 2020 Jul 31.

Academy of Medical Engineering and Translational Medicine, Tianjin University, Tianjin, China.

The brain-computer interface (BCI) is a system that is designed to provide communication channels to anyone through a computer. Initially, it was suggested to help the disabled, but actually had been proposed a wider range of applications. However, the cross-subject recognition in BCI systems is difficult to break apart from the individual specific characteristics, unsteady characteristics, and environmental specific characteristics, which also makes it difficult to develop highly reliable and highly stable BCI systems.

Decoding Hearing-Related Changes in Older Adults' Spatiotemporal Neural Processing of Speech Using Machine Learning.

Front Neurosci 2020 16;14:748. Epub 2020 Jul 16.

Institute for Intelligent Systems, University of Memphis, Memphis, TN, United States.

Speech perception in noisy environments depends on complex interactions between sensory and cognitive systems. In older adults, such interactions may be affected, especially in those individuals who have more severe age-related hearing loss. Using a data-driven approach, we assessed the temporal ( in time) and spatial ( in the brain) characteristics of cortical speech-evoked responses that distinguish older adults with or without mild hearing loss.

Evoked and induced EEG oscillations to visual targets reveal a differential pattern of change along the spectrum of cognitive decline in Alzheimer's Disease.

Int J Psychophysiol 2020 09 6;155:41-48. Epub 2020 Jun 6.

Istanbul University, Istanbul Faculty of Medicine, Department of Physiology, Turkey; Istanbul University, Hulusi Behcet Life Sciences Research Center, Turkey. Electronic address:

In recent years, quantitative variables derived from the electroencephalogram (EEG) attract an increasing interest for the evaluation of neurodegenerative diseases, as EEG registers the neuro-electric activity with a high temporal resolution and provides a cost-effective and easily accessible, non-invasive method. Event-related oscillations (EROs) as oscillatory responses in the EEG to specific events further provide the possibility to track the cognitive decline in a task-specific manner. Current study in search for potential ERO biomarkers to distinguish different stages of cognitive decline along the Alzheimer's Disease (AD) continuum re-analyzed a combined set of data collected and analyzed in previous studies by Başar and coworkers.

Using correlation analysis to assess the reliability of evoked potential components identified by signal averaging.

J Neurosci Methods 2020 07 1;340:108752. Epub 2020 May 1.

Dipartimento di Neuroscienze (DINOGMI), Università degli Studi di Genova, Largo P. Daneo 3, Genova, I-16132, Italy. Electronic address:

Background: Signal averaging is the conventional method of enhancing the signal-to-noise ratio in recordings of evoked potentials (EPs) from the skin surface in humans. However there may be difficulties in reliably identifying the features of interest especially when a low number of trials are averaged or when large artefacts with similar waveform as the signal are present.

New Method: This method uses the median cross-correlation coefficient of every possible pair of recording repetitions within user-defined windows across the time course of the evoked potential. Read More

Computer data simulator to assess the accuracy of estimates of visual N2/N2pc event-related potential components.

J Neural Eng 2020 06 22;17(3):036024. Epub 2020 Jun 22.

Department of Information Engineering-DEI, University of Padova, Padova, Italy.

Objective: Event-related potentials (ERPs) evoked by visual stimulations comprise several components, with different amplitudes and latencies. Among them, the N2 and N2pc components have been demonstrated to be a measure of subjects' allocation of visual attention to possible targets and to be involved in the suppression of irrelevant items. Unfortunately, the N2 and N2pc components have smaller amplitudes compared with those of the background electroencephalogram (EEG), and their measurement requires employing techniques such as conventional averaging, which in turn necessitates several sweeps to provide acceptable estimates.
