Materials and Methods

EEG data from rapid go/nogo visual categorization via natural photographs [1] Though the task involved complicated visual processing, averaged EEG epochs for target and non-target stimuli differed greatly as early as 150 ms after stimulus onset. It appeared to involve automated processing in the visual system.[2] QUESTION: What is a go/nogo visual categorization task?

EEG inverse problem: reconstructing intracranial brain sources from collected signals.Disparate EEG processes generally overlap in time and space. They become intertwined in scalp electrode recordings. [3]

Subjects were presented pictures for 20 ms at random intervals between 1.8–2.2s. Half of the pictures were animals. Subjects released a held button when an animal was observed. Subject accuracy was 94% for correct responses. Median reaction time was 440 ms
