MetadataShow full item record
The primary purpose of this dissertation was to determine how information is selectively processed in the brain through sensory gating mechanisms. Filtering, habituation, and orienting are three types of sensory gating that have never been investigated together in the same study. Although it has been well established that sensory gating is abnormal in many clinical groups, there remains a fundamental lack of understanding regarding the mechanisms of gating. For example, the functional significance of sensory gating, as well as how different types of sensory gating are related to basic brain ...
