Conclusions: The auditorily elicited ERD/ERS reflects cortical activity associated with cognitive functions. The present findings demonstrate that the auditorily elicited ERD/ERS can reveal subtle differences in auditory information processing. Semantic memory processes (encoding and comparison) are reflected as varying responses in the two alpha frequency bands. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
