The idea that an EEG or PET scan or fMRI, or some combination of these, might in the proximate future be able to tell us what a person is thinking becomes absurd when we consider that even the simplest thought, word, or idea is represented in the brain in a coded message involving the integrated functioning of perhaps thousands of neurons in very different parts of the brain, and that this coding may differ from person to person and in a single person from time to time or under different conditions.
Greater relative right frontal EEG activation has been associated with negative affect and the tendency to withdraw, whereas greater relative left frontal EEG activation has been associated with the opposite (Fox, 1991, 1994; Tomarken & Davidson, 1989).
Galenea has developed an innovative synaptic transmission drug discovery platform that integrates three components: the MANTRA[TM] system, a proprietary, high throughput screening technology, to identify a new generation of small molecule modulators of synaptic transmission; preclinical network measures employing in vitro brain slice EEG assays, and in vivo models using integrated EEG measures of animal behavior to more reliably determine CNS drug efficacy; and human EEG biomarkers, developed in tandem with and informed by our animal EEG data to greatly enhance CNS drug development.
