Human event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded from 10 subjects presented with visual target and nontarget stimuli at five screen locations and responding to targets presented at one of the locations. The late positive response complexes of 25-75 ERP average waveforms from the two task conditions were simultaneously analyzed with Independent Component(More)
Recent imaging and clinical studies have challenged the concept that the functional role of the cerebellum is exclusively in the motor domain. We present evidence of slowed covert orienting of visuospatial attention in patients with developmental cerebellar abnormality (patients with autism, a disorder in which at least 90% of all postmortem cases reported(More)
Unlike the clinical usages of evoked potentials (e.g. brain stem auditory evoked potentials for the assessment of auditory function), normative data for the olfactory event-related potential (OERP) have been unavailable. The principal objective was to establish normative data across the human life span for OERPs with a given set of parameters. Participants(More)
Olfactory event-related potentials (OERPs) were recorded monopolarly at the Fz, Cz, and Pz electrode sites in 16 young adults and 16 older adults to assess aging effects on the olfactory P3. Amyl acetate was used to elicit the OERPs, with an intertrial interval of 45 s. Young adults produced significantly larger P3 amplitudes and shorter P3 peak latencies(More)
Auditory and visual stimulus intensity levels were manipulated systematically in separate conditions to assess the influence of these variables on the P300 event-related brain potential (ERP). Increases in stimulus intensity produced increases in P300 amplitude and decreases in peak latency for both modalities, although the latency effects were stronger for(More)
The P3 event-related brain potential (ERP) reflects neuroelectric activity related to the speed of cognitive processing and allocation of attentional resources. The objective of the present study was to assess the relationship between the P3 and Slow Wave components of the olfactory event-related potential (OERP) with neuropsychological performance in young(More)
Olfactory event-related potentials (OERPs) were recorded monopolarly at the Fz, Cz, and Pz electrode sites in 16 young adults (8M/8F) and 16 older adults (8M/8F) with inter-stimulus intervals (ISI) of 45, 60 and 90 s using amyl acetate as the odorant stimulus. N1, P2, and N2 peak amplitudes and latencies were measured. Young participants demonstrated(More)
Olfactory event-related potentials (OERPs) were recorded in 14 young and 14 older adults, with odor strength of isoamyl acetate manipulated to assess olfactory stimulus intensity. Young participants produced significantly larger N1/P2, N2/P3 amplitudes and shorter N1, P2 and N2 latencies than older participants. Medium- and high-odor concentrations elicited(More)
