Abstract

Cross-spectral coherence is one way to quantify the dynamic interrelationships among brain regions, possibly reflecting the neurofunctional organization of the brain. The data reported in this chapter were from a pilot study performed in normal adults for the purpose of exploring whether mental activity would be reflected as different changes in cross-spectral coherence of the EEG (John et al., 1989).
