Cerebral Activities in the Occipital and Temporal Regions When Subjects Perform a Matching Task of Visual Stimuli
One of the most exciting possibilities in the MEG study is that the time course of cerebral activation can be obtained within the brain anatomy of individual subjects during various information processing from sensory to higher functions. Previous MEG studies describe the brain activities associated with visual and higher processing such as object viewing  and naming . The main objective of this study is to visualize the time course of the cerebral activation during the recognition of unreadable pseudo-characters in terms of graphical structure. This work would be contrasted with our previous studies on the visual and phonological processing of readable real-characters [3,4].
