Description

This is an exploratory study of differences between 26 left-handers and 26 demographically matched right-handers (selected from a larger separate database) on goal conflict specific rhythmicity using the procedures outlined in Shadli, S. M., McIntosh, J., Glue, P., & McNaughton, N. (2015). An improved human anxiety process biomarker: Characterisation of frequency band, personality, and pharmacology. Translational Psychiatry, 5, e699. doi:10.1038/tp.2015.188; http://www.nature.com/doifinder/10.1038/tp.2015.188. Details of the data files are provided in READ_ME.docx . The data files are supplied in ZIP folders, with one such for each participant. The key finding was that with the outside site ipsilateral to the dominant hand there are no substantial differences between the two groups in the range 6-10Hz. The two groups did show different variations in power across blocks of training trials. Further results details are provided in a full length paper, accepted for publication by CORTEX on 30 March 2021.
