Objective: This study examines the coherence of theta band during convergent thinking (CT), divergent thinking (DT) and rest condition.
Method: Electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings were conducted on 34 subjects (19 boys and 15 girls) in the three situations (CT, DT and rest). The EEG results were transformed into quantitative form (QEEG) using NeuroGuide software. The quantities were analyzed by repeated-measure ANOVA.
Results: The results showed different global coherence patterns during the three conditions. When compared with the rest condition, both divergent and convergent types of thinking produced significantly higher levels of coherence (p<0/05), though differences between the two types of thinking were insignificant.
Conclusion: Our results suggest different brain organizations during the three conditions. The results also could indicate a new path for further studies about the EEG patterns of CT and DT.
