Event-related potential responses to perceptual reversals are modulated by working memory load
Publication year: 2014

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
While viewing ambiguous figures, such as the Necker cube, the available perceptual interpretations alternate with one another. The role of higher level mechanisms in such reversals remains unclear. We tested whether perceptual reversals of discontinuously presented Necker cube pairs depend on working memory resources by manipulating cognitive load while recording event-related potentials (ERPs). The ERPs showed early enhancements of negativity, which were obtained in response to the first cube approximately 500 ms before perceived reversals. We found that working memory load influenced reversal-related brain responses in response to the second cube over occipital areas at the 150–300 ms post-stimulus and over central areas at P3 time window (300–500 ms), suggesting that it modulates intermediate visual processes. Interestingly, reversal rates remained unchanged by the working memory load. We propose that perceptual reversals in discontinuous presentation of ambiguous stimuli are governed by an early (well preceding pending reversals) mechanism, while the effects of load on the reversal related ERPs may reflect general top-down influences on visual processing, possibly mediated by the prefrontal cortex.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Temporal prediction (TP) is a flexible and dynamic cognitive ability. Depending on the internal or external nature of information exploited to generate TP, distinct cognitive and brain mechanisms are engaged with the same final goal of reducing uncertainty about the future. In this study, we investigated the specific brain mechanisms involved in internally and externally driven TP. To this end, we employed an experimental paradigm purposely designed to elicit and compare externally and internally driven TP and a combined approach based on the application of a distributed source reconstruction modeling on a high spatial resolution electrophysiological data array. Specific spatiotemporal ERP signatures were identified, with significant modulation of contingent negative variation and frontal late sustained positivity in external and internal TP contexts, respectively. These different electrophysiological patterns were supported by the engagement of distinct neural networks, including a left sensorimotor and a prefrontal circuit for externally and internally driven TP, respectively.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Little is known about how continuously changing emotional expressions are perceived, but it has been hypothesized that specific characteristics of emotional processing can be profitably explored within the framework of the non-linear dynamic systems theory. Recent studies based on such framework report perceptive "jumps" when continua of morphed facial expressions of emotion are presented. Specifically, emotions displayed in the middle of the continua seem to be more frequently decoded accordingly to the initial emotion, being consistent with a Hysteresis effect.
AIM:
In this study we further explore the non-linear properties of emotional processing and examine its EEG correlates.
METHOD:
We developed six continua of 11 frames each, of morphed expressions between pairs of emotions (anger, fear, sadness, happiness). During an EEG recording session, 55 healthy participants observed these continua, from emotion X to Y, Y to X and in random order, and were asked to identify the emotion being presented in each frame.
RESULTS:
Behavioral data revealed a remanence effect, with participants still perceiving the initial emotion beyond the mid-point of the continua, resulting in perceptual bimodality of the morphed expressions that are in the vicinity of the turning point between emotional categories. Different N170 mean amplitudes were found for mid-point frames of the continua Anger-Sadness and Sadness-Happiness, while for Fear-Sadness such difference was found for the LPP of the frame-related brain potentials.
CONCLUSIONS:
Results suggest a generalized hysteresis effect in the processing of facial expressions of emotion, and the same expression seems to induce different brain responses, depending on preceding stimuli.

Specific EEG/ERP responses to dynamic facial expressions in virtual reality environments
Publication year: 2015

http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007%2F978-3-319-03005-0_84
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Visual event-related potentials of facial expressions (FEs) have been studied using usually static stimuli after a nonspecific black screen as a baseline. However, when studying social events, the ecology of the environment and stimuli can be a bias. Virtual reality provides a possible approach to improve ecology while keeping stimulus control.
We propose a new approach to study responses to FEs. A human avatar in a virtual environment (a plaza) performs the six universal FEs along the time. The setup consisted of a 3D projection system coupled with a precision-position tracker. Subjects (N=6, mean age=25.6y) wore a 32-channel EEG cap together with 3D glasses and two infrared emitters for position tracking. The environment adapted in real time to subjects’ position, giving the feeling of immersion.
Each animation was composed by the instantaneous morphing of the FE, which is maintained for one second before the ’unmorphing’ to the neutral expression, which takes another second. Inter-trial interval was set to three seconds, keeping the neutral facial expression as baseline for one second before the morphing of any facial expression.
For the occipito-temporal region, we found a right asymmetrical negativity [150-350]ms after stimulusonset.Timefrequency analysis showed a significant difference in the beta frequency band (20-25Hz) around 350ms in the temporal lobe for the processing of the different facial expressions.
This result suggests an important role played by the temporal lobe in discriminating facial expressions. Furthermore, this study provides a proof-of-concept of the possibility of using a complex virtual reality setup coupled with an EEG system for the study of dynamic and ecological social stimuli.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Adolescence marks a period of transition from childhood to adulthood that is characterised by major changes in brain structure and function, and increased vulnerability to psychiatric disorder, including psychosis. Characterising normative developmental trajectories of brain function establishes an important baseline against which to map mechanisms contributing to pathological development. Cross-sectional investigations measuring the mismatch negativity (MMN) and P3a event-related potential components in healthy children and young adults have typically inferred increasing amplitudes and decreasing latencies during adolescence, interpreted as improved efficiency of sensory and cognitive processing. We sought to characterise within-individual trajectories of brain function in adolescence using a longitudinal design incorporating up to three assessments from late childhood though adolescence. Using a duration deviant passive auditory oddball paradigm, MMN and P3a components were recorded from 49 healthy children at approximately 24-month intervals (spanning ages 9-17 years). Linear mixed models, accounting for repeated measures, examined MMN and P3a amplitude and latency data from electrode FCz. Children at early pubertal stages had smaller MMN amplitude than adolescents in later pubertal stages, whereas MMN latency did not change with age or pubertal status. Random intercept models revealed a significant linear increase in P3a amplitude with age, while P3a latency increased initially from 11 years and stabilised by around 15 years. Longitudinal data analysis in children at-risk for psychosis is being finalised, with the aim of identifying the age(s) at which developmental trajectories of these components begin to diverge from the norm, and the nature of these deviations (e.g., delay vs. arrest of development).

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Attachment relationships influence the representations of the self and the others. This is thought to guide beliefs and perceptions, namely of emotional significant information as facial expressions of emotion(FEE). The goal of this work was to
understand how attachment dimensions are associated with neural responses to FEE. Twenty-seven healthy adults saw anger and happiness FEE, matched for arousal, and filled the Adult Attachment Scale, that measures the subscales of Anxiety, Close(comfort with intimacy) and Depend(sense of availability of others to one’s needs). A significant interaction between emotion and attachment showed that the 3 subscales were associated with N170 amplitude to happy, but not angry faces. Specifically, Anxiety scores predicted a reduction in N170 amplitude while Close and Depend scores predicted increased amplitudes to happy faces. An association was also found between the subscales and the LPP amplitude to both anger and happy faces in Anxiety (increased LPP) and in Depend (reduced LPP). Close scores were only negatively correlated with LPP amplitude for happy FEE. In sum, Anxiety affects the initial processing of happiness and leads to a larger later response to both FEE, possibly due to a hypervigilance to the meaning of these expressions towards the self. Contrarily, both Comfort with intimacy and Sense of Dependence increase early reactivity to happiness with reduced later processing (Depend for both FEE), illustrative of a secure pattern of emotional processing.

A new approach to eliminate high amplitude artifacts in EEG signals
Publication year: 2016

http://www.sensorsportal.com/HTML/DIGEST/september_2016/Vol_204/P_2855.pdf
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
High amplitude artifacts represent a problem during EEG recordings in neuroscience research. Taking this into account, this paper proposes a method to identify high amplitude artifacts with no requirement for visual inspection, electrooscillogram (EOG) reference channel or user assigned parameters. A potential solution to the high amplitude artifacts (HAA) elimination is presented based on blind source separation methods. The assumption underlying the selection of components is that HAA are independent of the EEG signal and different HAA can be generated during the EEG recordings. Therefore, the number of components related to HAA is variable and depends on the processed signal, which means that the method is adaptable to the input signal. The results show, when removing the HAA artifacts, the delta band is distorted but all the other frequency bands are preserved. A case study with EEG signals recorded while participants performed on the Halstead Category Test (HCT) is presented. After HAA removal, data analysis revealed, as expected, an error-related frontal ERP wave: the feedback-related negativity (FRN) in response to feedback stimuli.

When temporal prediction errs: ERP responses to delayed action-feedback onset
Publication year: 2019

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Sensory suppression effects observed in electroencephalography (EEG) index successful predictions of the type and timing of self-generated sensory feedback. However, it is unclear how precise the timing prediction of sensory feedback is, and how temporal delays between an action and its sensory feedback affect perception. The current study investigated how prediction errors induced by delaying tone onset times affect the processing of sensory feedback in audition. Participants listened to self-generated (via button press) or externally generated tones. Self-generated tones were presented either without or with various delays (50, 100, or 250?ms; in 30% of trials). Comparing listening to externally generated and self-generated tones resulted in action-related P50 amplitude suppression to tones presented immediately or 100?ms after the button press. Subsequent ERP responses became more sensitive to the type of delay. Whereas the comparison of actual and predicted sensory feedback (N1) tolerated temporal uncertainty up to 100?ms, P2 suppression was modulated by delay in a graded manner: suppression decreased with an increase in sensory feedback delay. Self-generated tones occurring 250?ms after the button press additionally elicited an enhanced N2 response. These findings suggest functionally dissociable processes within the forward model that are affected by the timing of sensory feedback to self-action: relative tolerance of temporal delay in the P50 and N1, confirming previous results, but increased sensitivity in the P2. Further, they indicate that temporal prediction errors are treated differently by the auditory system: only delays that occurred after a temporal integration window (~100?ms) impact the conscious detection of altered sensory feedback.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The present study aims at identifying reliable markers of neural preparatory processes during hypnosis. To this goal, we recorded the electroencephalographic activity of 23 volunteers regardless of their hypnotizability score. Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) were elicited while participants received non-painful electrical stimuli on the left median nerve in the conditions of relaxation and hypnosis with suggestions of reduced sensation. SEPs analysis was focused on the pre-stimulus activity and revealed two main components: the prefrontal negativity (pN) and the somatosensory negativity (sN) over the frontal and parietal areas of the scalp, respectively. Results showed reduced amplitudes for both components under hypnosis, mostly for the pN, suggesting a change of top-down control of parietal and prefrontal areas. Furthermore, the sLORETA source imaging showed a deactivation of the lateral and anterior portions of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) during the hypnotic state. The present study highlights the downregulation of the PFC as a core aspect of the adopted hypnotic task and confirms the ability of hypnosis to modulate the activity of frontal executive functions. Further, since the majority of participants fell into the medium range of hypnotizability, the present findings could reflect the hypnosis effects in most of the population.

tDCS over posterior parietal cortex increases cortical excitability but decreases learning: an ERPs and TMS-EEG study
Publication year: 2020

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The application of anodal transcranial direct current stimulation (AtDCS) is generally associated with increased neuronal excitability and enhanced cognitive functioning. Nevertheless, previous work showed that applying this straight reasoning does not always lead to the desired results at behavioural level. Here, we investigated electrophysiological markers of AtDCS-mediated effects on visuo-spatial contextual learning (VSCL). In order to assess cortical excitability changes after 3 mA AtDCS applied over posterior parietal cortex, event-related potentials (ERPs) were collected during task performance. Additionally, AtDCS-induced effects on cortical excitability were explored by measuring TMS-evoked potentials (TEPs) collected before AtDCS, after AtDCS and after AtDCS and VSCL interaction. Behavioural results revealed that the application of AtDCS induced a reduction of VSCL. At the electrophysiological level, ERPs showed enhanced cortical response (P2 component) in the group receiving Real-AtDCS as compared to Sham-AtDCS. Cortical responsiveness at rest as measured by TEP, did not indicate any significant difference between Real- and Sham-tDCS groups, albeit a trend was present. Overall, our results suggest that AtDCS increases cortical response to incoming visuo-spatial stimuli, but with no concurrent increase in learning. Detrimental effects on behaviour could result from the interaction between AtDCS- and task-mediated cortical activation. This interaction might enhance cortical excitability and hinder normal task-related neuroplastic phenomena subtending learning.

Identifying evoked potential response patterns using independent component analysis and unsupervised learning
Publication year: 2019

https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/2057-1976/aaeeed
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Independent Component Analysis (ICA) is a pre-processing step widely used in brain studies. One of the most common problems in artifact elimination or brain activity related studies is the ordering and identification of the independent components (ICs). In this work, a novel procedure is proposed which combines ICA decomposition at trial level with an unsupervised learning algorithm (K-means) at participant level in order to enhance the related signal patterns which might represent interesting brain waves. The feasibility of this methodology is evaluated with EEG data acquired with participants performing on the Halstead Category Test. The analysis shows that it is possible to find the Feedback Error Negativity (FRN) Potential at single-trial level and relate its characteristics with the performance of the participant based on their knowledge of the abstract principle underlying the task.

Affective modulation of cognitive control: A systematic review of EEG studies
Publication year: 2022
URL:
https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0031938422000506
Abstract/Results: Abstract
In recent years, a growing corpus of research has been conducted utilizing a variety of behavioral and neurophysiological methodologies to investigate the relationship of emotion and cognition, yielding unique insights into fundamental concerns about the human mind and mental disease. Electroencephalography (EEG) has been utilized to investigate how emotional states alter neural markers of cognitive control. The current study is a systematic analysis of EEG research that looks at affective modulation (mood, emotion) of cognitive control and its many sub-processes (e.g., cognitive flexibility, inhibitory control, and working memory). The PRISMA standards were followed in this review, which looked at experimental designs and tasks, as well as methodological elements of EEG recording and analysis across research. A total of 35 articles were chosen for qualitative synthesis as a consequence of the search. The examination of event-related potentials (ERPs), which showed affective modulation of 19 different components, was the most common electrophysiological approach used across research. The majority of the investigations focused on N2 and P3, indicating that affective induction has a strong influence on attentional processes and response inhibition. Future research should look into different methodologies such as source location and connection metrics to better understand the brain's areas and dynamic response during affective induction activities. It is also suggested that the technical components of the report be more explicit in order to promote study comparability and replication.

Awareness to utilitarian responses in later life: An ERP study with moral dilemmas
Publication year: 2022

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0304394022003858
Abstract/Results: Abstract
The current study aims to provide the first insights into the neural correlates of utilitarian and deontological responses to moral dilemmas across the lifespan. To this purpose, younger (n = 30), middle-aged (n = 29), and older adults (n = 29) completed moral dilemmas during an EEG recording. Behaviorally, groups did not differ in the number of utilitarian responses and reaction times. However, at the neural level, older adults had higher Error Positivity (Pe) amplitudes than younger adults after utilitarian responses. As this effect was specific to utilitarian responses, it suggests that utilitarian decisions may induce increased conflict in the older group. These findings highlight that older adults may be more aware of the harmful outcomes of utilitarian decisions during moral decision-making.

Abstract/Results:
Abstract:
Size constancy, i.e. the ability to achieve a stable experience of perceived size despite the fact that the image projected onto the retina varies continuously with viewing distance, is an integral aspect of our visual experience, critical to our successful interactions with the physical and social
world. Yet, our understanding of how the brain achieves size constancy is still poor. The overarching goal of this project was to examine the temporal features of the neural processesunderlying size constancy. By combining EEG and kinematic data, we aimed to unveil for the
first time when (and where) the human brain achieves size constancy during perceptual and grasping tasks. In a series of studies, EEG and hand kinematics were recorded simultaneously while participants were asked to either manually estimate the perceived size of an object or to
pick it up. The former task provides an explicit measure of size, whereas the latter (grip aperture) is used as an implicit measure. Viewing distance was manipulated directly, by placing objects of different sizes at varying distances, or indirectly, by using visual illusions. Findings revealed
that early visual components, specifically P1, N2 and P2, were modulated according to size constancy principles: perceptually bigger objects elicited earlier latencies and greater amplitudes than the smaller ones, even when the stimuli subtended the same visual angle and therefore generated the same image on the retina. Interestingly, task (manual estimation vs. grasping) did not affect these early components. Our results suggest that size constancy for real objects occurs at the earliest cortical stages and that early visual processing does not change
as a function of task demands.
