dc.description.abstract The current study investigated the effect of monotonous driving on inter-hemispheric electroencephalography (EEG) coherence. Twenty-four non-professional drivers were recruited to perform a fatigue instigating monotonous driving task while 30 channels of EEG were simultaneously recorded. The EEG recordings were then divided into 5 equal sections over the entire driving period for analysis. Inter-hemispheric coherence was computed from 5 homologous EEG electrode pairs (FP1-FP2, C3-C4, T7-T8, P7-P8, and O1-O2) for delta, theta, alpha and beta frequency bands. Results showed that frontal and occipital inter-hemispheric coherence values were significantly higher than central, parietal, and temporal sites for all four frequency bands (p<0.0001). In the alpha frequency band, significant difference was found between earlier and later driving sections (p=0.02). The coherence values in all EEG frequency bands were slightly increased at the end of the driving session, except for FP1-FP2 electrode pair, which showed no significant change in coherence in the beta frequency band at the end of the driving session.
