The N1 wave of the human electric and magnetic response to sound: a review and an analysis of the component structure.
This paper reviews the literature on the Nl wave of the human auditory evoked potential. It concludes that at least six different cerebral processes can contribute to (he negative wave recorded fromExpand

The mismatch negativity (MMN) in basic research of central auditory processing: A review
In the present article, the basic research using the mismatch negativity (MMN) and analogous results obtained by using the magnetoencephalography (MEG) and other brain-imaging technologies isExpand

The role of attention in auditory information processing as revealed by event-related potentials and other brain measures of cognitive function
This article examines the role of attention and automaticity in auditory processing as revealed by event-related potential (ERP) research. An ERP component called the mismatch negativity , generatedExpand

Early selective-attention effect on evoked potential reinterpreted.
Abstract In a dichotic listening situation stimuli were presented one at a time and at random to either ear of the subject at constant inter-stimulus intervals of 800 msec. The subject's task was toExpand

Language-specific phoneme representations revealed by electric and magnetic brain responses
There is considerable debate about whether the early processing of sounds depends on whether they form part of speech. Proponents of such speech specificity postulate the existence ofExpand

The mismatch negativity (MMN): towards the optimal paradigm
OBJECTIVE Recent studies have shown that the mismatch negativity (MMN), a change-specific component of the event-related potential (ERP), for particular auditory features is degraded in differentExpand

The perception of speech sounds by the human brain as reflected by the mismatch negativity (MMN) and its magnetic equivalent (MMNm).
The present article outlines the contribution of the mismatch negativity (MMN), and its magnetic equivalent MMNm, to our understanding of the perception of speech sounds in the human brain. MMN dataExpand
