The pulse: transient fMRI signal increases in subcortical arousal systems during transitions in attention.

Published in NeuroImage, 2021

Studies of attention emphasize cortical circuits for salience monitoring and top-down control. However, subcortical arousal systems have a major influence on dynamic cortical state. We hypothesize that task-related increases in attention begin with a “pulse” in subcortical arousal and cortical attention networks, which may be reflected indirectly through transient fMRI signals…

A Machine Learning Approach for Classification of Spike-Wave Discharges in Absence Epilepsy

Published:

RATIONALE: Driving safety is consistently identified as a top concern for people with epilepsy. In young adults who outgrow clinical seizures, the question of whether they should be granted driving privileges remains a challenge for clinicians. We introduce an EEG-based machine learning approach to predict with a minimum false discovery rate whether or not generalized 3-4Hz spike-wave discharges (SWDs) produce impaired behavioral responsiveness.
