The so-called P300 (or P3b) is the most prominent component in the event-related potential of the EEG. Since decades it is the main psychophysiological measure of processing of task relevant information. Numerous studies in this time have proposed that the amplitude of the P300 is, among others, modulated by the probability of a stimulus. In this recent publication we demonstrate this assumption has to be questioned.

Communication in times of COVID-19

Written by Edmund Wascher

Probably for another couple of months, conferences as well as larger meetings with colleagues will be impossible due to travel and assembly restrictions. Therefore we decided to share a new channel of communication with our partners,  friends and everyone who is interested in ergonomics research. Hopefully on a regular basis, news from our department will be presented in this blog. We will inform you about our projects, plans and publications. This cannot replace conferences or meetings but it will be a possibility to stay in touch.
