Fig. 5. sLORETA source activity comparing healthy volunteers (HV) with fecal incontinence (FI) patients for the evoked potentials to anal stimulation (top) and rectal stimulation (bottom) in the 4 peaks of anal sensory evoked potentials (ASEP) and rectal sensory evoked potentials (RSEP). ASEP cortical source activity was localized slightly higher in frontal lobe areas in patients compared with HV with a reduced overall area of cortical activation evidenced for most peaks. Differences in RSEP activation were not so clear between both groups except for source activity of n2 which showed diminished in FI patients.
