Abstract
The study addresses two research issues. The first investigates the effect, on EEG, of tasks chosen to differentially engage the cerebral hemispheres. The second concentrates on an hypothesized relationship between frontal theta activity and sustained focused attention. Both issues share a common emphasis on electrophysiological individual differences. Not to be confused with the psychophysiology of individual differences, this study demonstrates the need to pay greater attention to electrophysiological differences among individuals, and the degree to which these differences influence results in EEG research.
