Visual Evoked Potentials and Affective Ratings of Semantic Stimuli
In the last decade it has become quite evident that eventrelated brain potentials not only reflect changes in the physical parameters of a stimulus but are also quite sensitive to psychol ogical variables. The relationship between event-related brain potentials and concomitant ongoing cognitive processing has been the subject of numerous investigations which have been thoroughly reviewed (Regan, 1972; Beck, 1975; Callaway, 1975; Thatcher and John, 1977).
