Abstract

The relationship of EEG asymmetry to spatial performance was studied for high and low spatial ability males and females. As in previous research for high spatial ability males relatively greater right hemispheric activity was associated with successful spatial performance. For low ability males, a group rarely studied, the opposite relationship was found. Both high and low ability females showed no consistent pattern of relationships.
