I don't have experience with consumer grade EEG, but at fp1 and fp2 you should be able to measure the P3a response. Given the high impedance you will need a lot of trials, but the response is typically seen at fp1 and fp2 in research. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0168559798000331 For the Tp sites they are a bit posterior but you may ...

The entirety of the cerebral cortex, part of the cerebrum, is stimulated during all learning. This includes the area of the prefrontal cortex. The cerebrum, the large, outer part of the brain, controls reading, thinking,learning, speech, emotions and planned muscle movements like walking. Hopkins Medicine

No, inner speech does not follow the same neural pathway as speech coming in from outside. Rather, inner speech uses the same neural mechanism as outer speech - that is, speech going out. The neural mechanisms of inner speech can be studied using recently developed technologies such as fMRI imaging of subjects instructed to or prevented from engaging in ...

According to Howard Gardner and his theory of Multiple Intelligence, I can propose that there is no link between IQ and the ability to mimic sound. The IQ test (originating in the work by Alfred Binet) is not a measure of intelligence pre-se, but rather a measure of the ability of the subject to comprehend in the manner expected. [Look for Gardner's ...

This question cannot be answered in the form in which you asked it both because of the limits of current neuroscientific theories and methodologies when it comes to determining the structures of complex neural representations (although we have made headway in a few cases such as place cells and grid cells), and because neural representations are not really ...

Music is known as a form of an abstract stimulus, which can arouse feelings of euphoria, similar to tangible rewards that involve the striatal (corpus striatum) dopamine system. In a study, published in nature neuroscience, researchers used the neurochemical specificity of 11C Raclopride positron emission tomography scanning, combined with ...

Yes it is possible, but it is difficult. The way it would be done currently is to insert a needle into the base of your spinal cord to measure the concentration of a metabolite of serotonin, 5-HIAA, in the fluid surrounding your brain. It is also possible to measure levels of this metabolite in saliva, urine, or in the bloodstream, but these measures would ...

What Christiaan says true. It is sheer impossible. However, there is technology that cán "see your mental pictures". In a TED-talk by Mary-Lou Jepsen she explains how fMRI and machine learning algorithms are used to recreate viewed or imagined videos from brain activity. It is a really neat TED-talk and definitely worth watching. What is possible using EEG ...

I never thought that my Bachelor Thesis would ever come in handy. Thank you for this question! Short answer No, you cannot keep up two unrelated rhythms in a stable coordinated fashion when tapping for your finger for instance. Long Answer Let us start with (and skip over) the oldest paper that I have about it. Haken, Kelso and Bunz (1985) described in a ...
