Visualization of Abstract Audio-visual Information: An Analysis of Art Cognitive Activity Based on Electroencephalogram

Wei Shi


Common short signals and special graphic signals are taken as targets to measure changes in the waveforms related to brain's events of artists so as to explore the reasons why artists can create high-quality works from the perspective of electroencephalogram (EEG). It is found that the occurrence of brain wave peaks in ordinary human brains delays and the wave amplitude reduces; under the stimulation of common signal, the occurrence of brain wave peaks in artist’s brains delays and the wave amplitude reduces. However, after taking appropriate amount of alcohol, the brain wave peak time delays, the wave amplitude rises and area of the waveform increases under the stimulation of the graphic signals that they are interested in. The phenomenon of artists’ high creativity often lies in some biographical literary works or historical materials, but few people analyze their principles from a scientific perspective. The author analyzes people’s thinking process from the perspective of thinking signal formation and information processing operation, as well as uses EEG measurement method to study the reasons why artists create high-quality works.
