  1. pmc Brain activity underlying auditory perceptual learning during short period training: simultaneous fMRI and EEG recording
    Ana Cláudia Silva de Souza
    Universidade Federal de Sao Joao del Rei, Ouro Branco, Brazil
    BMC Neurosci 14:8. 2013
    ..We investigated whether the practice effects are determined solely by activity in stimulus-driven mechanisms or whether high-level attentional mechanisms, which are linked to the perceptual task, control the learning process...

    Masa aki Sato
    ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories, 2 2 2 Hikaridai, Seika, Soraku, Kyoto 619 0288, Japan
    Neuroimage 23:806-26. 2004
    ..Simulation results demonstrate that our method appropriately resolves the inverse problem even if fMRI data convey inaccurate information, while the Wiener filter method is seriously deteriorated by inaccurate fMRI information...

    Taku Yoshioka
    National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Soraku, Kyoto 619 0288, Japan
    Neuroimage 42:1397-413. 2008
    ..These results indicate the potential capability for the hierarchical Bayesian method combining MEG with fMRI to improve the spatiotemporal resolution of noninvasive brain activity measurement...

    Takatsugu Aihara
    ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories, Kyoto 619 0288, Japan
    Neuroimage 59:4006-21. 2012
    ..The results suggest that VBMEG with NIRS prior performs well, even with as few as 19 EEG sensors. These findings indicate the potential value of clinically applying VBMEG using a combination of EEG and NIRS...

    Okito Yamashita
    ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories, Japan
