What People are Saying About This

Steven A. Hillyard

This expanded and updated edition of Steven Luck's book is essential reading for all who investigate the event-related brain activity that underlies human perception and cognition. True to its title, this new edition provides an authoritative and (even more) comprehensive introduction to the basic technical and theoretical principles of brain potential recording. Interwoven with these basics, moreover, are lucid discussions of more advanced (and even controversial) topics of experimental design, data analysis, and interpretation that will challenge and entertain investigators at all levels. An additional bonus comes from well-chosen overviews of recent studies that give an up-to-date picture of how brain potential recordings are shedding light on the neural architecture of cognitive processes such as attention, memory, and language.

György Buzsáki

The quality of science always depends on careful experimentation. Learning from the authorities of the field is the most effective way of mastering a method. Steven Luck is the master of evoked responses and this second edition amply proves it.

Endorsement

This book is a must-read for students and researchers using ERPs in cognitive neuroscience. It should be in every ERP lab around the world. Doing great ERP research is an art, and requires insights into the signals acquired, filtering, artifacts, source reconstruction, and so on. Equally crucial is knowledge about the possibilities and limitations of ERPs. Based on Luck's years of experience in instructing students in his ERP Boot Camps, the book discusses all the intricate aspects of ERP research in an accessible and scholarly way. Therefore, I highly recommend An Introduction to the Event-Related Potential Technique to all who want to apply this method with maximal gain.
