Abstract [en]

The present study explores the adoption of electroencephalography andeye tracking to assess physiological differences between divergent and convergentthinking. In neuroscientifi c literature alpha power synchronization in the rightparietal lobe has been associated to top-down inhibition of task-irrelevant cognitiveprocesses occurring during divergent thinking, but fi ndings in oculometric studiesseem to suggest a bottom-up process operated by active visual-gating. In the presentstudy, 14 male engineering students performed an adaptation of the AlternativeUses task under two experimental conditions. During the task brainwaves andocular activity were collected using electroencephalography and eye tracking, butresults did not reach statistical signifi cance. Improvements in the experimentalsetting and analysis method to overcome similar problems are presented. Futurestudies should further delve into the infl uences on results of experimental settingsand of analysis methods to increase comparability among physiological studies.
