An Introduction to the Event-Related Potential Technique by Steven J. Luck

By Steven J. Luck

The event-related power (ERP) procedure, within which neural responses to particular occasions are extracted from the EEG, presents a robust noninvasive software for exploring the human mind. This quantity describes functional tools for ERP study in addition to the underlying theoretical intent. It deals researchers and scholars a vital advisor to designing, carrying out, and examining ERP experiments. This moment variation has been thoroughly up-to-date, with extra fabric, new chapters, and extra available reasons. Freely on hand supplementary fabric, together with a number of online-only chapters, provide extended or complicated remedy of chosen issues. the 1st half the booklet offers crucial history details, describing the origins of ERPs, the character of ERP parts, and the layout of ERP experiments. the second one half the e-book bargains an in depth therapy of the most steps interested in accomplishing 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 parts, artifacts, measuring amplitudes and latencies, and statistical research; up to date assurance of recording applied sciences; concrete examples of experimental layout; and lots of extra figures. on-line chapters conceal such themes as overlap, localization, writing and reviewing ERP papers, and developing and working an ERP lab.

The actual recordings can easily be carried out by a graduate student or an advanced undergraduate, and the costs related to storing and analyzing the data are minimal. These costs have dropped a great deal over the past 20 years, largely due to the decreased cost of computing equipment. fMRI is fairly expensive (typically $500/ hour), and PET is exorbitantly expensive, primarily due to the need for radioactive isotopes with short half-lives and medical personnel. Microelectrode recordings in non-human primates are also fairly expensive due to the per diem costs of maintaining the monkeys, the cost of the surgical and animal care facilities, and the high level of expertise required to record electrophysiological data from awake, behaving monkeys.
