Evoked potentials offer an excellent opportunity to study the stages of cerebral information processing in a clearly defined experimental setting. This applies especially to the so-called endogenous potentials (see Picton and Stuss 1980 for a definition), for which a relation to various cognitive functions is widely accepted. The task-dependent changes of these potentials permit an experimental test of models of perceptual functions developed by cognitive psychology.
