Categorisation of Mobile EEG: A Researcher's Perspective (2017)
Journal Article
Bateson, A. D., Baseler, H. A., Paulson, K. S., Ahmed, F., & Asghar, A. U. (2017). Categorisation of Mobile EEG: A Researcher's Perspective. Biomed research international, 2017, (1-15). doi:10.1155/2017/5496196. ISSN 2314-6133

© 2017 Anthony D. Bateson et al. Researchers are increasingly attempting to undertake electroencephalography (EEG) recordings in novel environments and contexts outside of the traditional static laboratory setting. The term "mobile EEG," although com... Read More about Categorisation of Mobile EEG: A Researcher's Perspective.

Neural responses to facial expressions support the role of the amygdala in processing threat (2013)
Journal Article
Mattavelli, G., Sormaz, M., Flack, T., Asghar, A. U., Fan, S., Frey, J., …Andrews, T. J. (2014). Neural responses to facial expressions support the role of the amygdala in processing threat. Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, 9(11), 1684-1689. https://doi.org/10.1093/scan/nst162

© The Author (2013). Published by Oxford University Press. The amygdala is known to play an important role in the response to facial expressions that convey fear. However, it remains unclear whether the amygdala's response to fear reflects its role i...

Response of face-selective brain regions to trustworthiness and gender of faces (2012)
Journal Article
Mattavelli, G., Andrews, T. J., Asghar, A. U., Towler, J. R., & Young, A. W. (2012). Response of face-selective brain regions to trustworthiness and gender of faces. Neuropsychologia, 50(9), (2205-2211). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2012.05.024. ISSN 0028-3932

Neuropsychological and neuroimaging studies have demonstrated a role for the amygdala in processing the perceived trustworthiness of faces, but it remains uncertain whether its responses are linear (with the greatest response to the least trustworthy...

Volume conduction effects in brain network inference from electroencephalographic recordings using phase lag index (2012)
Journal Article
Peraza, L. R., Asghar, A., Green, G., & Halliday, D. M. (2012). Volume conduction effects in brain network inference from electroencephalographic recordings using phase lag index. Journal of neuroscience methods, 207(2), (189-199). doi:10.1016/j.jneumeth.2012.04.007. ISSN 0165-0270

In this paper, we test the performance of a synchronicity estimator widely applied in Neuroscience, phase lag index (PLI), for brain network inference in EEG. We implement the four sphere head model to simulate the volume conduction problem present i...

Acupuncture needling sensation: the neural correlates of deqi using fMRI (2009)
Journal Article
Asghar, A. U. R., Green, G., Lythgoe, M. F., Lewith, G., & MacPherson, H. (2010). Acupuncture needling sensation: the neural correlates of deqi using fMRI. Brain research, 1315, (111-118). doi:10.1016/j.brainres.2009.12.019. ISSN 0006-8993

The needling sensation of deqi is considered by most acupuncturists to be an important component of acupuncture, yet neuroimaging research that investigates this needle sensation has been limited. In this study we have investigated the effect of deqi... Read More about Acupuncture needling sensation: the neural correlates of deqi using fMRI.

An amygdala response to fearful faces with covered eyes (2008)
Journal Article
Asghar, A. U., Chiu, Y. C., Hallam, G., Liu, S., Mole, H., Wright, H., & Young, A. W. (2008). An amygdala response to fearful faces with covered eyes. Neuropsychologia, 46(9), (2364-2370). doi:10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2008.03.015. ISSN 0028-3932

Findings of amygdala responsiveness to the eye region of fearful faces raise the question of whether eye widening is the only facial cue involved. We used fMRI to investigate the differential amygdala response to fearful versus neutral stimuli for fa... Read More about An amygdala response to fearful faces with covered eyes.

Brain imaging of acupuncture: comparing superficial with deep needling (2008)
Journal Article
MacPherson, H., Green, G., Nevado, A., Lythgoe, M. F., Lewith, G., Devlin, R., …Asghar, A. U. R. (2008). Brain imaging of acupuncture: comparing superficial with deep needling. Neuroscience letters, 434(1), (144-149). doi:10.1016/j.neulet.2008.01.058. ISSN 0304-3940

The difference between superficial and deep needling at acupuncture points has yet to be mapped with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Using a 3 T MRI, echo planar imaging data were acquired for 17 right-handed healthy volunteer participa... Read More about Brain imaging of acupuncture: comparing superficial with deep needling.
