For patients with schizophrenia, a deficient gating (or filtering) of sensory input has been described. One major approach to study this sensory gating is to measure event-related potentials (ERPs) in response to paired clicks. In these experiments, sensory gating is quantified as amplitude reduction of the ERP components P50 and N100 from the 1st to the 2nd stimulus. In ERP studies brain electrical signals are averaged over single trials. Alterations in phase locking might be one factor… CONTINUE READING
