OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to examine the role of brain activity related to orienting in distractibility. METHODS Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded in response to intermittently presented, non-attended trains of identical auditory stimuli in otherwise healthy but easily distractible (n=16) and non-distractible (n=16) 15-to-16 year old adolescents. RESULTS In easily distractible adolescents, the first tone in each train elicited a significantly larger N1 response than in… CONTINUE READING
