The present project investigated the electrophysiologic effects of auditory competition on components of the late auditory evoked potential (LAEP). A group of 12 young female listeners attended to deviant tones interspersed among frequent tones in one ear while trains of deviant and frequent tones of a different frequency were either present or absent at the opposite ear. Comparison of event-related potential (ERP) waveforms with competition- and attention-related difference waves revealed… CONTINUE READING
