The literature today focuses on the behavioral differences between reading from a paper and reading from a screen. However, while the information about the behavioral differences between the two reading conditions is extensive, the information about the cerebral connections underlying the behavioral differences is scant.
Previous spectral analysis studies on EEG data suggested that low attention abilities are related to higher theta and theta / beta ratio. Other studies have shown that exposure to the screen is related to increased theta / beta ratio.
The aim of this work is to examine the differences in spectral analysis between the two reading modes, examine the effective connectivity between the two reading modes, and reach conclusions about the differences based on statistical tests. This is done using the EEGLAB tool for analyzing brain signals.
