The mismatch negativity response (MMN) is an event-related potential that is believed to reflect the automatic (possibly preconscious) neural processing of changes in ongoing environmental sounds. The MMN involves a negative voltage shift of baseline electroencephalographic (EEG) activity in the approximate latency window of the N1 and P2 cortical potentials in response to new or novel sounds. The most commonly used laboratory tests for extracting the MMN from EEG activity all involve oddball… CONTINUE READING
