Gamma ASSR, 睡眠與 level of arousal

Gamma ASSR會受到睡眠與 level of arousal 的影響

The amplitude and phase precision of 40 Hz auditory steady-state response depend on the level of arousal. 2007 Experimental Brain Research

The 64-channel EEG data was wavelet transformed and the amplitude and phase precision of the wavelet transformed evoked potential were decomposed by the recently proposed multi-subject non-negative multi-way factorization (NMWF) (Morup et al. in J Neurosci Methods 161:361–368, 2007). The estimates of these measures were subjected to statistical analysis. The amplitude and phase precision of the ASSR were significantly larger during the low arousal state compared to the high arousal condition. The modulation of ASSR amplitude and phase precision by differences in the arousal level during recording warrants caution when investigating oscillatory brain activity and interpreting the findings of reduced ASSR in schizophrenia. It also emphasizes the necessity of standardized recording procedures and monitoring the level of arousal during ASSR testing.

思覺失調症的Spontaneous Gamma Activity

哈佛大學Kevin Spencer率領下的  Yoji Hirano日本團隊發表於2015 JAMA Psychiatry的文章Spontaneous Gamma Activity in Schizophrenia.  (Impact Factor: 12.01). 01/2015; DOI: 10.1001/

ABSTRACT Importance: A major goal of translational neuroscience is to identify neural circuit abnormalities in neuropsychiatric disorders that can be studied in animal models to facilitate the development of new treatments. Oscillations in the gamma band (30-100 Hz) of the electroencephalogram have received considerable interest as the basic mechanisms underlying these oscillations are understood, and gamma abnormalities have been found in schizophrenia (SZ). Animal models of SZ based on hypofunction of the N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) demonstrate increased spontaneous broadband gamma power, but this phenomenon has not been identified clearly in patients with SZ.

Objective: To examine spontaneous gamma power and its relationship to evoked gamma oscillations in the auditory cortex of patients with SZ. (繼續閱讀…)

2015的Gamma Activity新文章:Spontaneous Gamma Activity in Schizophrenia

January 14, 2015於JAMA Psychiatry上線的新文章Spontaneous Gamma Activity in Schizophrenia,作者群是 Yoji Hirano; Naoya Oribe等日本團隊,但是指導者是 Kevin M. Spencer  24個控制組與24個思覺失調組進行ASSR

This cross-sectional study reports an increase in spontaneous EEG gamma activity during auditory steady-state stimulation in schizophrenia, reflecting a disruption in the normal balance of excitation and inhibition.

  1. modifications in the amplitude and synchrony of neural oscillations during adolescence that may be crucial for the emergence of cognitive deficits and psychotic symptoms in schizophrenia
  2. Schizophrenia is associated with impaired parameters of synchronous oscillations that undergo changes during late brain maturation。也就是說:In schizophrenia, late maturational processes are aberrant and networks fail to express precisely coordinated network associations
  3. Large-Scale Disintegration of Cortical Network Activity就會造成精神症狀 (繼續閱讀…)

Gamma Oscillation的最新Review: Gamma Oscillations in Schizophrenia: Mechanisms and Clinical Significance

Gamma (30 – 50 Hz) oscillations have warranted special attention due to their omnipresence in cognitive tasks. For patients with schizophrenia (SCZ), a disease associated with poor cognition, abnormal gamma oscillations have been reported in many experimental paradigms. The goal of this paper is to review the literature on gamma oscillations in SCZ. The review is structured into four sections: (繼續閱讀…)
