Can working memory predict target-to-target interval effects in the P300?

Authors: Genevieve Z Steiner, Robert J Barry, Craig J Gonsalvez

Journal: International Journal of Psychophysiology

Year Published: 2013

It has been suggested that the P300 component of the ERP is an electrophysiological index of memory-updating processes associated with task-relevant stimuli. Component magnitude varies with the time separating target stimuli (target-to-target interval: TTI), with longer […]
