Abstract

A review of the studies concerning age-related changes of the cognitive event-related potentials is presented. Graded changes (with little or no difference in waveform morphology but shifts in component latency or amplitude) draw to continuous developmental models, but morphological waveform differences are assumed to reflect fundamental differences in modes of cognitive processing. The authors equally present an experimental paradigm indicating that a multifactorial model of amplitude variations is able to reflect the passing from one cognitive stage to the next one, according to Piaget's theory.
