The present study was designed to test differential hemispheric activation induced by emotional stimuli in the gamma band range (30-90 Hz). Subjects viewed slides with differing emotional content (from the International Affective Picture System). A significant valence by hemisphere interaction emerged in the gamma band from 30-50 Hz. Other bands, including alpha and beta, did not show such an interaction. Previous hypotheses suggested that the left hemisphere is more involved in positive… CONTINUE READING
