  • Figure-ground modulation in awake primate thalamus 

    Jones, Helen E.; Andolina, Ian M.; Shipp, Stewart D.; Adams, Daniel L.; Cudeiro Mazaira, Francisco Javier; Salt, Thomas E.; Sillito, Adam M. (National Academy of Sciences, 2015)
    [Abstract] Figure-ground discrimination refers to the perception of an object, the figure, against a nondescript background. Neural mechanisms of figure-ground detection have been associated with feedback interactions ...
  • Static magnetic fields reduce epileptiform activity in anesthetized rat and monkey 

    Rivadulla, Casto; Aguilar, Juan; Coletti, Marcos; Aguila, Jordi; Prieto, Sandra; Cudeiro Mazaira, Francisco Javier (Nature, 2018-10-30)
    [Abstract] Increasing evidence indicates that static magnetic fields (SMF) reduce cortical activity in both human and animal models. The aim of this work was to investigate the effect of SMF on epileptiform cortical activity, ...
  • Effects of a finger tapping fatiguing task on M1-intracortical inhibition and central drive to the muscle 

    Madrid, Antonio; Madinabeitia-Mancebo, Elena; Cudeiro Mazaira, Francisco Javier; Arias, Pablo (Nature, 2018)
    [Abstract] The central drive to the muscle reduces when muscle force wanes during sustained MVC, and this is generally considered the neurophysiological footprint of central fatigue. The question is if force loss and the ...
  • The effects of expectancy on corticospinal excitability: passively preparing to observe a movement 

    Arias, Pablo; Robles-García, Verónica; Espinosa, Nelson; Corral Bergantiños, Yoanna; Mordillo-Mateos, Laura; Grieve, Kenneth; Oliviero, Antonio; Cudeiro Mazaira, Francisco Javier (American Physiological Society, 2014-01-08)
    [Abstract] The corticospinal tract excitability is modulated when preparing movements. Earlier to movement execution, the excitability of the spinal cord increases waiting for supraspinal commands to release the movement. ...
  • Spatiotemporal gait patterns during overt and covert evaluation in patients with Parkinson’s disease and healthy subjects: is there a hawthorne effect? 

    Robles-García, Verónica; Corral Bergantiños, Yoanna; Espinosa, Nelson; Jácome, María Amalia; García-Sancho, Carlos; Cudeiro Mazaira, Francisco Javier (Human Kinetics, 2015)
    [Abstract] Parkinson's disease (PD) and aging lead to gait impairments. Some of the disturbances of gait are focused on step length, cadence, and temporal variability of gait cycle. Under experimental conditions gait can ...
