Chapter 9 EEG THETA, MEMORY, AND SLEEP

It will be shown that sleep is important for memory consolidation and an event-related increase in theta power is associated with increasing memory demands in a similar way as was found in animal research for the hippocampal EEG.

Full-length review EEG alpha and theta oscillations reflect cognitive and memory performance : a review and analysis

Evidence is presented that EEG oscillations in the alpha and theta band reflect cognitive and memory performance in particular. Good Ž . Ž . performance is related to two types of EEG phenomena i a

The functional significance of theta and upper alpha oscillations.

It is suggested that theta reflects working memory functions whereas upper alpha may be important for the reactivation of long- term memory codes in short-term memory.

Short-Term EEG Spectral Pattern as a Single Event in EEG Phenomenology

Functional relevance (consistency) of EEG short-term spectral patterns in accordance with the changes of brain functional state, cognitive task and with different neuropsychopathologies is demonstrated.

Estimation of valence of emotion from musically stimulated EEG using frontal theta asymmetry

The study correlates self-response of all 41 subjects with quantitative EEG to musical stimulus and proposes a system to estimate valence of emotion for musical stimulus, which confirms the hemispheric asymmetry of frontal theta power.

Fundamentals of EEG Methodology in Concussion Research

Basic EEG processes are reviewed and the background for understanding its usefulness in identification of changes related to motor processes in general and brain trauma, in specific is presented.

BRAIN POTENTIALS DURING SLEEP

The present experiments were directed to a study of the depth of sleep, and to a lesser extent of hypnosis, with the aid of cerebral potentials, to establish a correlation between depth (or intensity) of sleep and electrical patterns.

Alpha and Theta EEG in Vigilance

Correlogram ratios indicated progressively decreasing arousal through the session but did not distinguish responses from detection failures, and incidence of theta waves dropped significantly just prior to failures and did not do so around responses.
