The aim of the present study was to examine the time course and scalp distribution of electrophysiological manifestations of the visual word recognition mechanism. Event-related potentials (ERPs) elicited by visually presented lists of words were recorded while subjects were involved in a series of oddball tasks. The distinction between the designated(More)
This chapter reviews the main data on the physiological substrates of auditory selective attention and their contribution to theoretical models of cognitive psychology. While event-related potentials, magnetoencephalography, and more recently neuroimaging techniques have provided fundamental information on the neural correlates of attention in the central(More)
Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded while subjects were involved in three gender-processing tasks based on human faces and on human hands. In one condition all stimuli were only of one gender, preventing any gender discrimination. In a second condition, faces (or hands) of men and women were intermixed but the gender was irrelevant for the(More)
In a previous experiment using scalp event-related potentials (ERPs), we have described the neuroelectric activities associated with the processing of gender information on human faces (Mouchetant-Rostaing, Giard, Bentin, Aguera, & Pernier, 2000). Here we extend this study by examining the processing of age on faces using a similar experimental paradigm,(More)
In a previous experiment aimed at studying gender processing from faces, we had found unexpected early ERP differences (45-85 ms) in task-irrelevant stimuli between a condition in which the stimuli of each gender were delivered in separate runs, and a condition in which the stimuli of both genders were mixed. Similar effects were observed with hand stimuli.(More)
