P3a from Visual Stimuli: Typicality, Task, and Topography

It is suggested that stimulus context as defined by the target/standard discrimination difficulty rather than stimulus novelty determines P3a generation.

P3a, perceptual distinctiveness, and stimulus modality.

Wavelet Analysis of P3a and P3b

It is suggested that target/standard discrimination difficulty, rather than stimulus novelty, determines P3a generation for visual stimuli but that the underlying theta oscillations are differentially affected by stimulus novelty.

P3a from a passive visual stimulus task

P3a from visual stimuli: task difficulty effects.

The auditory P3 from passive and active three-stimulus oddball paradigm.

Generation of early frontal P3 could be related to alerting activity of frontal cortex irrespective of stimulus context, while generation of later parietal P3 is related to temporo-parietal network activated when neuronal model of perceived stimulation and attentional trace are comparing.

Difficulty of Discrimination Modulates Attentional Capture by Regulating Attentional Focus

The results revealed that discrimination difficulty had opposite effects on the P3a response between central and surrounding locations, suggesting that spatial attention was focused by the difficulty of discrimination, and deviant processing was increased within its focus but decreased outside its focus.



Stimulus context determines P3a and P3b.

The findings suggest that target P300s are not influenced by the nontarget stimulus configuration, whereas the nontTarget P300 outcomes are determined directly by the stimulus context.

P300 topography and modality effects from a single-stimulus paradigm.

The findings suggest that the single-stimulus paradigm may be useful in experimental and applied contexts that require very simple ERP task conditions.
