Computer Assisted EEG — Analysis as an Approach to the Exploration of Mental Processes
Since HANS BERGER’s ingenious discovery of the EEG, a vigorous exploration of mental processes by measuring the brain’s electrical activity has been started. However, before the computer era little has been achieved, mainly because the multitude of data, recorded during single EEG sessions, could not be handled. The problem of a proper quantification of EEG activity by measuring amplitude and phase relationships of the Alpha-activity between different locations on the scalp has been approached by several authors (particularly by Motokawa) even before the introduction of computers. Their studies however had been largely neglected since.
