Figure 1: Distribution of stimulation points in M1 (panel A) and mPFC (panel B), in the two experimental sessions (PE: blue dots; AE: red dots), represented in the MNI space by using a template cortical surface. Green dots represent the four electrodes surrounding the stimulated area, which were used for the efficiency analysis (see text and figure 6 for details).

User Research Hyperscanning: Figure 2. A: Topographies displaying mean ERD% across pause deciles for Solo (top) and Duet (bottom). Outliers were not removed for this visualization (but were for data submitted to analyses, see 3b-c). B: ERD% data for Observed (dashed) and Predicted (solid) Solo performance results. C: ERD% data for Observed (dashed) and Predicted Duet performance results. D: Relationship predicted from Linear Mixed Model between standardized pause duration and beta ERD%. All predicted data displayed are computed from the full Linear Mixed Effects Model (see Results).

First Steps to Using Carbon Wire Loops to Correct for Artifacts in simultaneous EEG-fMRI

by Lars Hausfeld, PhD Department of Cognitive Neuroscience, Maastricht University, Maastricht Brain Imaging Centre (M-BIC) The Netherlands Abstract The simultaneous acquisition of EEG and fMRI signals promises linked datasets with high temporal and spatial resolution, respectively. To make optimal use of the data from this advanced acquisition scheme, the attenuation of artifacts in EEG signals…
