PS 473 Event-Related Potentials: Laboratory Methods Course (Fall/Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: PS 371 or PS 372 or permission of instructor
When it comes to figuring out what the awake, human brain is doing, one of the most valuable tools is the use of electroencephalography (EEG) to measure the neural activity tied to particular types of events (event-related potentials, or ERPs). This course will serve as a hands-on introduction to ERPs, with equal parts discussion and hands-on application. Discussion will focus on the neurophysics of ERPs, the analysis of ERPs, and the insights that ERPs have yielded in the attention, language, and memory literatures. Hands-on activities will allow students to implement the laboratory techniques and analysis approaches discussed in class.
