Sleep EEG topography and children's intellectual ability


Geiger, A; Huber, R; Kurth, S; Ringli, M; Achermann, P; Jenni, O G (2012). Sleep EEG topography and children's intellectual ability. NeuroReport, 23(2):93-97.

Abstract

The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between regional aspects of the children's sleep electroencephalogram (EEG) (high-density EEG recordings) and their intellectual ability. The spectral power in the α, σ, and β frequency ranges of 109 EEG derivations was correlated with the scores of full-scale intelligence quotient, fluid intelligence quotient, and working memory (14 participants, mean age: 10.5±1.0 years; six girls). The previously reported relationship (derivation C3/A2) between spectral band power and intellectual ability could further be refined, particular spatial patterns over central and parietal areas with positive correlations were found. Thus, neurobiological correlates of intelligence during sleep may exhibit brain region-specific patterns.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
