RESPONSE:

1. What methods were used to conduct research concerning the localization of behavior/brain relationships? Which method do you feel is the most effective? Why?

There are many methods, often used in combination (multichannel EEG), employed to conduct research concerning the localization of brain/behavior, such as EGG, MRI, PET, SPECT, MEG brain imaging (Rosenow & Luders, 2001) using the PCA and LORETTA method of localization. These methods are problematic when trying to localize specific areas of brain function as it relates to behavior (e.g., which part of the brain lights up when a persons has a seizure, for example), so researchers are vigilantly searching for new methods that are more reliable for ...

Solution Summary

This solution examines the types of methods used to conduct research concerning the localization of behavior/brain relationship, as well as evaluates which method is the most effective, and why. References provided in APA format.
