Abstract

The article presents magnetoencephalography (MEG) data from healthy participants while undergoing the Hold/Release paradigm. During the paradigm, participants visually perceived a sequence of two letter strings which either assembled into real words (Hold condition) or pseudowords (Release condition). If the first letter string was morphologically valid, they held their attention (and/or held the item in working-memory) to wait for the second string, whereas if it were invalid, they could release it, respectively. We present data on high-frequency neuronal oscillations of the Hold condition compared to the Release condition. Making this information publicly available could allow other researchers to perform analyses and contribute to understanding the cognitive processes such as language, mnemonic or attentional processes.
