Özet

Effects of the spontaneous slow cortical potential (SCP) shifts of the electroencephalogram (EEG) on the P300 response were investigated on ten healthy volunteers. P300 responses were recorded using an auditory oddball paradigm, where target stimuli were presented regularly after every four standard stimuli. Single event-related potential (ERP) sweeps exhibiting negative or positive SCP shifts were averaged separately. The P300 amplitude was significantly larger during negative SCP shifts. Furthermore, the topographies of P200 and P300 waves obtained during negative and positive SCP shifts showed significant differences. The results indicate that the SCP shifts in single ERP sweeps, which are considered to be correlated with the arousal or basic activity level of the cortex, explain at least part of the inter-trial variability of P300 response.
