This new volume brings together a wealth of information on event-related potentials of the brain, an area which has grown increasingly important as researchers attempt to understand the workings of the human brain using noninvasive imaging techniques. The volume addresses theneurophysiological bases of ERPs, brain stems and cognition, as well as applications. It will be of interest to a wide range of researchers in perceptual, cognitive, and motor behavior.

Editorial Reviews

"An important collection of articles reviewing current data, and discussing theoretical issues in ERP research. The topics covered are of value not only to researchers and clinicians using ERPs, but to neuropsychologists involved with other methods. . . . well worth reading. . . . Togetherthese chapters provide a good review of the ERP results from studies of at-risk groups, and a clear discussion of the theoretical issues raised by genetic-risk research." --Neuropsychologist
