EEG/ERP research

An event-related potential (ERP) is any stereotyped electrophysiological response to an internal or external stimulus. More simply, it is any measured brain response that is directly the result of a thought or perception. ERPs can be reliably measured using electroencephalography (EEG), a procedure that measures electrical activity of the brain through the skull and scalp. Electroencephalography creates a set of lines, called brain waves, that is used to look at brain activity. Measuring differences in brain waves allows researchers to study changes in brain activity in response to stimuli.
