Interval Histogram Analysis of Eeg Hemispheric Activity In Schizophrenia
While research into the psychophysiological correlates of maladaptive behavior has expanded during recent years, the investigation of the hemispheric processes related to psychopathology has experienced unprecedented growth during the last few years (e.g., Flor-Henry, 1979). One particular branch of this type of hemisphericity research which has received considerable attention and yielded results of heuristic value has been the study of hemispheric activity in schizophrenics, see Flor-Henry, Koles & Reddon (this volume); Flor-Henry & Koles (1984); Newlin, Carpenter and Golden (1981) and Walker, Hoppes and Emory (1981) for comprehensive reviews on this subject.
