Audiovisual Processing Audiovisual processing is measured by a variety of methods that involve studying structures of the brain such as Warnicke’s Area, brainwaves as measured by EEGs and the integration of audiovisual stimuli such as facial recognition and speech processing. Frequency bands involved in audiovisual integration: Frequency bands refer to the rhythmic nature of brain waves as measured on an EEG. In general brainwaves are divided into five different “bands” as follows: Delta (0.5-4Hz), Theta (4-8Hz), Alpha (8-13Hz), Beta (13-30Hz), and Gamma (36-44Hz) These ranges vary somewhat with the maturity of the individual (Taylor & Baldeg, 2002, pp. 318-319). Different types of activity result in different brain wave patterns....The end:
