Twelve subjects were tested using a 3-tone auditory oddball paradigm consisting of a standard 1000 Hz tone (P = 80%) and two deviants, namely, a 1200 Hz tone and a 2000 Hz tone (both P = 10%). Testing took place in 3 conditions: (1) attend, in which the subject had to count one of the deviant tones; (2) ignore, in which the subject read a book; and (3)(More)
The present study focused on event-related potentials to tones in the presence and absence of sleep spindles. Six undergraduates were studied throughout an experimental night, following an adaptation session. The event-related potentials to tone stimuli were averaged for each subject. Separate averages were determined for trials on which no sleep spindle(More)
Low pH in tissue can evoke pain in animals and humans, and is an important factor in hyperalgesia. Research has also implicated acidosis in psychiatric and neurological diseases. One emerging class of pH-detecting receptors is that of the acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs). Advances in ASIC research have improved the understanding of the role played by pH(More)
