The prevalence and duration of quantitative hemispheric electro encephalic measures reflecting the affective and academic differences among a group of 1st year university students

A group of 1st year university students selected on the basis of their previous high school performance records were followed throughout the academic year to study the prevalence and duration of quantitative hemispheric EEG measures that reflect the affective or emotional instability of these students. Academic performance and any emotional or academically related difficulties were also monitored throughout the course of the experiment. Significant group differences reflected by college academic performance, the reported frequency of emotionally disturbing problems or events and the frequency of right hemispheric disorganization of the EEG amplitudes were found. Implications for elaborating the nature in which right hemispheric brain processes serve to mediate affective behavior and influence academic performance were discussed.
