The present study investigated neural correlates underlying the psychological processing of the extent of self-relevance. Event-related potentials were recorded for distracting names different in extent of self-relevance while subjects performed a three-stimulus oddball task. The results showed larger amplitudes and prolonged latencies for high self-relevant than for moderate self-relevant, low self-relevant and non-self-relevant names at P2 component. Furthermore, N2 amplitudes were decreased… CONTINUE READING
