ISBN-10: 0262525852

ISBN-13: 9780262525855

The event-related strength (ERP) method, within which neural responses to particular occasions are extracted from the EEG, offers a strong noninvasive software for exploring the human mind. This quantity describes sensible equipment for ERP study in addition to the underlying theoretical cause. It deals researchers and scholars a vital advisor to designing, carrying out, and interpreting ERP experiments. This moment version has been thoroughly up-to-date, with extra fabric, new chapters, and extra obtainable factors. Freely to be had supplementary fabric, together with numerous online-only chapters, supply accelerated or complicated therapy of chosen themes. the 1st 1/2 the e-book offers crucial historical past info, describing the origins of ERPs, the character of ERP parts, and the layout of ERP experiments. the second one 1/2 the e-book deals a close therapy of the most steps concerned with carrying out ERP experiments, protecting such subject matters as recording the EEG, filtering the EEG and ERP waveforms, and quantifying amplitudes and latencies. all through, the emphasis is on rigorous experimental layout and comparatively uncomplicated analyses. New fabric within the moment variation contains whole chapters dedicated to elements, artifacts, measuring amplitudes and latencies, and statistical research; up to date insurance of recording applied sciences; concrete examples of experimental layout; and plenty of extra figures. on-line chapters disguise such subject matters as overlap, localization, writing and reviewing ERP papers, and establishing and working an ERP lab.

Sample text

And don’t forget that you are measuring voltage, which is the potential for current to flow and not the actual flow of current. Electricity does not just run directly between the two poles of a dipole in a conductive medium, but instead spreads out across the conductor. Consequently, ERPs do not appear only at an electrode located directly above the dipole but are instead picked up by electrodes located all over the head. The high resistance of the skull causes the voltage to be even more widely distributed.
