Auditory Evoked Potentials and Psychopathology
Based on accumulated scientific knowledge it appears reason able to assume a functional relationship between the scalp recorded electroencephalogram (EEG) and brain processes. One can further reasonably expect that EEG would, in some way, reflect the altered mental state associated with serious psychopathology. As evidenced by this conference and the large number of articles published on this topic, event-related potentials are viewed as a potentially fertile area for the study of EEG-psychopathology relationships. Background issues concerning event related potentials have been well covered in books by Shagass (1), Regan (2) and Calloway (3), as well as in various review papers.
