Research output: Unpublished contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


Recently, hemispherical asymmetries have been demonstrated for primary visual processing suggesting that basic spatiotemporal features of the stimulus may play a role in the lateralisation effects that have been observed in the human brain. However, to our knowledge no studies have reported hemispheric differences using magnetoencephalography (MEG). Hence, the objective of this study was to determine whether MEG could detect hemispherical asymmetry to the onset of a checkerboard pattern.
