How does the brain respond to everyday objects?

Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

An experiment is described where the participants were presented with pictures of four different objects and were also allowed to handle the objects while their brain activity was recorded by means of EEG. The objects were also evaluated by means of semantic scales. When the objects were visually displayed significant effects appeared in the posterior part of the brain, but when the participants were allowed to handle the objects pronounced effects appeared both in the anterior and posterior cortex. The most important conclusion from the study is that the aesthetic properties of common objects will influence the general activity of the brain in a systematic way similar from one person to another.
