Mining Within-Trial Oscillatory Brain Dynamics to Address the Variability of Optimized Spatial Filters

Mining Within-Trial Oscillatory Brain Dynamics to Address the Variability of Optimized Spatial Filters

Author(s): Andreas Meinel, Henrich Kolkhorst, Michael Tangermann
Mining Within-Trial Oscillatory Brain Dynamics to Address the Variability of Optimized Spatial Filters 780 435 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

   Data-driven spatial filtering algorithms optimize scores, such as the contrast between two conditions to extract oscillatory brain signal components. Most machine learning approaches for the filter estimation, however, disregard…

Suppression of Subthalamic Nucleus Activity by Micromagnetic Stimulation

Author(s): Seung Woo Lee, Shelley L. Fried
Suppression of Subthalamic Nucleus Activity by Micromagnetic Stimulation 556 235 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Abstract Magnetic stimulation delivered via 0.5-mm diameter coils was recently shown to activate retinal neurons; the small coil size raises the possibility that micromagnetic stimulation (μMS) could underlie a new…
