Signal-to-noise ratio of chemosensory event-related potentials.


OBJECTIVE We investigated the influence of the number of stimuli on signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio of CSERP. METHODS CSERP from 20 normosmic subjects were obtained in response to stimulation with two olfactory (H(2)S and PEA) and a trigeminal (CO(2)) stimulant. For each of these odors, 160 stimuli were delivered into the right nostril (duration 200ms, mean… (More)
