Abstract

One of the main concerns of brain research is to measure the brain’s electrical activity and, in this way, to try to detect the coding of behaviorally relevant information in the central nervous system (CNS). It is usually assumed that there is no uniform code for behaviorally relevant information in the neuronal networks which constitute the CNS. There are also no standard methods for clearly describing the functional and behavioral components of the brain’s electrical activity. Analysis of the electroencephalogram (EEG), of evoked potentials (EPs), and of endogenous potentials (P300 family) are among the most fundamental research tools for understanding the sensory and cognitive information processing in the brain. Since Berger’s discovery of the EEG and Adrian’s measuring of cortical field potentials, the important applications of these powerful neurological techniques have been described in several books [1–3].
