Sample text

However, it should be noted that the magnetic responses were all recorded from over only one hemisphere, while the electrical responses were affected by sources in both hemispheres. Until it is demonstrated experimentally that the responses of the hemispheres are symmetrical at different ISIs, it is not proven that sources that are essentially silent magnetically can be detected electrically and that the behavior of these "silent" sources is significantly different from that of nonsilent magnetic sources.

1988). Because of the short measurement time and the repeatability of the measurement, all tasks were performed by each subject in the study. The first-level comparison, the presentation of single words without a lexical task, was compared with visual fixation without word presentation. No motor output nor volitional lexical processing was required in this task; rather simple sensory input and involuntary wordform processing were targeted by this subtraction. In the second-level comparison, speaking each presented word was compared with word presentation without speech.

Thus, for example, N1OO and P200 of the auditory evoked fields occur at different times, and their sources have been shown to be separated by a distance of about 1 cm. If both of these portions were to be active at the same time, then it might prove difficult, although not impossible, to resolve them. However, the time differences also serve to ameliorate the problem of source resolution. com 49 BRAIN AND COGNITION The technical problems discussed in this section are critical. Until further progress is made toward resolving them, it is unlikely that significant progress will be made in applications of the technology to the study of cognitive processes, except perhaps in very fundamental programs as discussed in Chapter 3 in the section on research findings.
