Event-related potentials (ERPs) [1] are electrical signals reflecting the neurochemical processes within the brain, which may be recorded non-invasively from the human scalp using electrodes, amplifiers and data acquisition system. ERPs may occur in response to auditory and visual stimuli. Due to poor signal-to-noise ratio, ERPs are measured by presenting(More)
