Abstract

Abstract In two separate experiments 61 18- to 35-year-old part-time university students were given the Personal Philosophy Inventory (PPI) that contained items that infer temporal lobe lability. Alpha activity seconds per minute during a 10-min recording (equal intervals of eyes opened or eyes closed) were obtained from the temporal and occipital lobes for each subject. Positive, intermediate strength correlations were obtained between the total numbers of different temporal lobe signs as measured by the questionnaire and both the average amount (eyes closed) of the variability in α activity from the temporal but not the occipital lobes. The results support the construct validity of the temporal lobe signs inventory and suggest that a continuum of temporal lobe lability (as inferred from both experimential and electroencephalographic criteria) exists within the normal population.
