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.
