Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate an interaction between frontal and left temporo-parietal cortices in tasks requiring word association. A new method was used to examine averaged event-related potentials in different frequency bands by calculating correlation coefficients between wavelet curves in distant cortical areas. This method was applied to previous event-related potentials recordings which found successive activation of frontal and left posterior areas [1]. Correlated activity at 17 Hz was observed between frontal and left temporal (Wernicke's) areas prior to full activation of Wernicke's area.
