Brain potentials have been recorded during silence, during silent reading, and oral reading. While it has been assumed that potentials cannot be picked up during strong, complex stimulation, the results indicate that they can be. Analysis of the data indicates a hypothesis to the effect that complexity of cortical functioning is associated with complexity of the electrical activity of the cortex.
