84 and others before them found that imaging of the frontal regions of individuals with ADHD did show blood perfusion deficits. This would correspond to lower astrocyte activity and less metabolic activity, as well as reduced glycogen use. 86 Richard Davidson’s87 findings that the left side of the brain appears to be naturally more activated than the right side in normal adults with right-hand dominance would lead to expectations that reduced fast-wave activity and increased alpha on the left side may be a strong indicator of mood.

If two sites remain at 45 degrees phase difference for around 500 ms, we might consider them as having a meaningful relationship that we term coherence. This is sometimes calculated using Pearson’s correlation coefficient of power between sites but is sometimes calculated by one of several other methods. Current research suggests that coherence is a measure of communication between two sites,71 in that it reflects changes in the mean coupling constants between two sites with respect to axonal connectivity.

For instance, when theta is far higher in the frontal region than the posterior region, symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are usually present. 84 and others before them found that imaging of the frontal regions of individuals with ADHD did show blood perfusion deficits.
