This chapter describes how event-related potentials (ERPs) can be recorded and analyzed, and discusses research on a number of ERP components, focusing on those that are particularly relevant to human factors issues: the early-latency, attention-related P1 and N1; the long-latency P3 or P300; the mismatch negativity (MMN); the lateralized readiness potential (LRP); and the error-related negativity (ERN). It discusses the use of these ERP components to address four neuroergonomic issues: (1) assessment of mental workload; (2) understanding the neural basis of error detection and performance monitoring; (3) response readiness; and (4) studies of automatic processing. It outlines the specific advantages offered by ERPs in neuroergonomics research.

Keywords:   mental workload, error detection, performance monitoring, response readiness, automatic processing, neuroergonomics research
