Infrequent events transiently activate human prefrontal and parietal cortex as measured by functional MRI.

Abstract

P300 is an event-related potential elicited by infrequent target events whose amplitude is dependent on the context provided by the immediately preceding sequence of stimuli, suggesting its dependence on working memory. We employed magnetic resonance imaging sequences sensitive to blood oxygenation level to identify regional changes evoked by infrequent… (More)
