The breakthrough involves bringing two recent developments in the world of technology together: high-speed eye tracking that records eye movements in unprecedented detail using cutting-edge infra-red cameras; and high-density electroencephalograph (EEG) technology that measures electrical brain activity with millisecond precision through electrodes placed on the scalp.
These individuals were administered Erikson flanker tasks to provoke ERN waves on the 32-electrode electroencephalograph (EEG) when erroneous responses are induced by presenting incongruent flankers around the target stimulus.
INTRODUCTION: Like other cells, nerve cells also show changes of electrical potential during activity which can be detected, amplified and recorded in the form of waves with an instrument called electroencephalograph. The EEG waves are due to current flow in the fluctuating dipoles formed on the dendrites of the cortical cells and cell bodies.
