Sever motor and intellectual disabilities (SMID) patients can't express their feelings with languages. That's why it is important to measure and analyze their brain activity. In this study, we tried to investigate the brain response to hearing subject's own name of healthy people and one patient with SMID by analyzing EEG. The results of time frequency analysis showed the inter trial coherence of a patient with SMID at theta oscillation was higher in response to SON specifically. On the other hand, that of healthy subjects was not so different with that in response to control condition. These results might reflect of the difference of lexical semantic process between the patient and healthy subjects.
