Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper implements spectral analysis of scalp- -EEG recordings during a language naming and visualisation task. The method offers new frontier to explore spatiotemporal features of the organisation of conceptual knowledge in the intact brain. Our findings tallies with results reported in the literature using other techniques such as fMRI. The method introduced in this paper provides new perspective for understanding and possibly diagnosing category specific semantic deficits.
