Event-related brain potentials (ERPs) are used as measures of covert brain function. Their usefulness as such has led to an enormous increase of interest in their basic character and their application in clinical and research settings. Written by internationally recognized investigators, Event-Related Brain Potentials aims to meet this growing interest. It provides an up-to-date and comprehensive review of current knowledge as well as discussions of factors that will shape future developments. The book is divided into four sections, each addressing a key area in ERP research. Much of the material covered is new and has not received such in-depth and systematic discussion before. In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of research in this area, it includes views from experts in the fields of neurology, psychiatry, cognitive psychology, biophysics, engineering, and genetics. It also contains extensive bibliographies and is fully indexed.

Nunez: Physical principles and neurophysiological mechanisms underlying event-related potentials; Richard Coppola: Topographic mapping of multilead data; Alan S. Gevins: Dynamic patterns in multiple lead data; Jennifer S. Buchwald: Animal models of cognitive event-related potentials; Raymond Kesner: Cognitive constructs in animal and human studies; PART II: EVENT-RELATED POTENTIALS IN THE BIOLOGICAL CONTEXT: Brigitte Rockatroh & Thomas Elbert: On the relations between event-related potentials and autonomic responses; Lois E. Putnam: Great expectation; Don M. Tucker: Asymmetries of neural architecture and the structure of emotional experience; PART III: BRAIN SYSTEMS AND COGNITION: James E. Hoffman: Event-related potentials and automatic and controlled processes; Howard S. Hock: Judgements of frequency; Ira S. Fischler: Comprehending language with event-related potentials; David L. Woods: The physiological basis of selective attention; Eric Courchesne: Chronology of postnatal human brain development; Theodore R. Bashore, Jr: Age-related changes in mental processing revealed by analyses of event-related brain potentials; PART IV: APPLICATIONS: Raja Parasuraman: Event-related brain potentials and human factors research; Christopher D. Wickens: applications of event-related potential research to problems in human factors; David Friedman: Event-related potentials in populations at genetic risk; C. Robert Cloninger: Event-related potentials in populations at genetic risk; Robert F. Simons & Mark A.

Nuechterlain: Methodological considerations in the search for indicators of vulnerability to severe psychopathology.
'Most neuropsychologists will find articles in this collection well worth reading ... a good review of the ERP results from studies of at-risk groups, and a clear discussion of the theoretical issues raised by genetic-risk research.' Warren S. Brown, Neuropsychologia, Vol. 31, No. 12, 1993
