[Spatial organization of biopotentials and original features of visual images].

[Article in Russian]


Features of spatial organization of neocortical potentials during mental creating of the original and standard visual images were studied. Intrahemispheric and interhemispheric coherence in different EEG frequency bands and temporal relations between relative changes in the index of linear (correlation coefficient) and non-linear (multiple entropy) processes in different neocortical areas were analysed. Number of decreased coherence values in the high-frequency alpha subband between remote neocortical points during creating of an original image was significantly lower than during creating of a standard image. During creating of the original image, the number of synchronously functioning pairs of neocortical areas and the mean level of linear correlation between the areas were higher, and correlation by the non-linear index, on the contrary, was lower than during creation of the standard image. The correlation between changes in different neocortical areas for both processes during creating of the original image was only positive, and that during creating of the standard image was both positive and negative. The conclusion was made that creative and reproductive types of visual imagination were different in the spatial distribution of coordinated changes in the linear and non-linear processes, mean magnitudes of these changes, and the character of hemispheric interaction. The data on different interhemispheric relations in diagonal and central bilateral directions raise a question about the radial representation of visual imagination.
