Probing the time-course of the auditory oddball P3 with secondary reaction time.

An elementary neural model of the P3 is proposed in which the P3 is held to manifest a brief, widely-distributed, inhibitory event. A preliminary and indirect test of the model is described using secondary-task methodology. Manual reaction times were measured to probe clicks delivered during the presumed time-course of an auditory oddball P3. We observed… CONTINUE READING
