OBJECTIVE To determine the existence of a pre-attentively evoked somatosensory mismatch negativity component and to investigate the use of that component in objective clinical diagnostics. METHODS First we determined the temporal discrimination threshold (DT) of paired stimuli in each subject, and applied two sequential electrical stimuli to the hand with paired stimulus times of (1) DT-10 ms, (2) DT-30 ms and (3) DT+50 ms. Then, we recorded ERPs using an oddball paradigm, frequent (standard… CONTINUE READING
