8. High frequency oscillatory activities during selective attention in humans (I. Ozaki, Y. Yaegashi, M. Baba and I. Hashimoto)

9. Event-related components of laser evoked potentials (LEPs) in pain stimulation: recognition of infrequency, location and intensity of pain (M. Kanda)

10. Novelty-related brain response and its clinical applications (S. Yamaguchi)

11. Cross-modal plasticity in the blind revealed using functional neuroimaging (N. Sadato)

12. Psychophysics and electrophysiology of human perceptual learning: a summary (W. Skrandies)

13. Two ways of hearing – dissociation between spectral and temporal processes in the auditory cortex (S.J. Jones)

14. The mystery o


This volume comprises invited presentations from the 8th International Evoked Potentials Symposium. It is no longer possible to categorise chapters by modality, so the Editors have grouped them under broader headings reflecting the use of Evoked Potentials (EPs) in the search for sources and origins of phenomena; the insights they offer into cognitive processing; and their role in clinical advances.

Key Features

  • Contributions from EPs experts worldwide

  • The wide variety of eneavours in which EPs play a part

  • The text is divided into 3 key parts: cognition and higher cerebral function, sources and origins and clinical advances
