Abstract
This study compares the development of the human cerebral cortex of 224 girls and 284 boys in a series of cross-sectional analyses as measured by EEG coherence on normal children's brains (longisectional design). Correlations of these EEG readings taken from all brain regions between a mean age of 6 months and 16 years yield measures of synaptic communication. Time series of these measures reflect the changing growth patterns across the 16 years. Time series of mean EEG coherence are oscillating waves that travel across left-right and front-back spatial gradients in both hemispheres. Growth spurts in mean coherence correlate with the genetic process of synapse o...
