Abstract

Event-related potentials (ERPs) provide evidence of a direct link between cognitive events and brain electrical activity in a wide range of cognitive paradigms. It has generally been held that an ERP is the result of a set of discrete stimulus-evoked brain events. A recent study, however, provides new evidence to suggest that some ERP components might be generated by stimulus-induced changes in ongoing brain dynamics. This is consistent with views emerging from several neuroscientific fields, suggesting that phase synchronization of ongoing rhythms across different spatio-temporal scales mediates the functional integration necessary to perform higher cognitive tasks.
