Neurocognitive mechanisms of cognitive control: The role of prefrontal cortex in action selection, response inhibition, performance monitoring, and reward-based learning
Convergent evidence highlights the differential contributions of various regions of the prefrontal cortex in the service of cognitive control, but little is understood about how the brain determinesExpand

Development of Response-Monitoring ERPs in 7- to 25-Year-Olds
In a target discrimination task, trials with incorrect responses elicit event-related potentials (ERPs) that include an error-related negativity (ERN or Ne) and a later error-positivity (Pe).Expand

Skilled performance, practice, and the differentiation of speed-up from automatization effects: Evidence from second language word recognition
Practice on cognitive tasks, in general, and word recognition tasks, in particular, will usually lead to faster and more stable responding. We present an analysis of the relationship between observedExpand

The error-related negativity as a state and trait measure: motivation, personality, and ERPs in response to errors.
This study examines changes in the error-related negativity (ERN/Ne) related to motivational incentives and personality traits. ERPs were gathered while adults completed a four-choice letter taskExpand

The reliability of ERP components in the auditory oddball paradigm.
Nineteen adolescents (average age 15 years, 3 months) were tested and retested using a standard 40 target, auditory oddball ERP paradigm across an interval of 1 year, 10 months to determineExpand

The effects of uncertainty in error monitoring on associated ERPs
A series of experiments were conducted to address the effect of uncertainty regarding performance for predicting the likelihood of a correct-response negativity (CRN) in addition to error-relatedExpand

Electrophysiological changes during adolescence: A review
While psychological research has long shown that adolescence is a period of major cognitive and affective transition, recent neurophysiological research has shown that adolescence is also accompaniedExpand

Neurophysiological Correlates of Emotion Regulation in Children and Adolescents
We measured event-related potentials associated with inhibitory control across a broad age range and tested for differences in their amplitude, latency, and source localization with age. Expand

ERN varies with degree of psychopathy in an emotion discrimination task
It is hypothesized that anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) function may be disrupted in psychopathy. Since ACC is considered the generator of the error-related negativity (ERN), we expected the ERN toExpand

Error-Related Electrocortical Responses Are Enhanced in Children With Obsessive–Compulsive Behaviors
The error-related negativity (ERN or Ne) and positivity (Pe) are event-related potential components elicited during simple discrimination tasks after an error response. The ERN and Pe have aExpand
