 The Theta Rhythm..... . . . . .
It is theorized that theta activity in the posterior areas of the brain is involved with selective attention, and in the frontal areas with the cognitive filtering, ìdisattending to extraneous stimuliî, neccesary for entry into the hypnotic state (Crawford, 1994).
He found theta activity in a number of other laughter inducing situations such as the inhalation of nitrous oxide, the consumption of ethyl alcohol in a social environment, and during the induction of high pressure nervous syndrome during simulated dives in a hyperbaric chamber.
Theta rhythms have been observed in humans and animals during a wide variety of activities; thus understanding the role of theta is integral to the understanding of the functioning brain.

 Maximal Theta Response Latency   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Maximal theta response was identified as the wavelet with the highest amplitude in the rectified curve, and the peak amplitude value was used to measure its latency.
Although only the phase-locked theta responses in the averaged filtered ERPs were quantitatively analyzed, the presence of event-related theta activity was verified by the changes in the power of the total (phase-locked and non-phase-locked) theta EEG activity and by the peaks from the theta (4-7 Hz) range in the AFCs.
The correlations of the latency of P400-700 with latency of the maximal theta response at Pz and age are presented in Table 3 and illustrated in Fig.
