Attentional demands do affect amplitudes of N1 and N2 in the sensory gating paradigm in neurotypical adults and children
Past research has shown that N1 and N2 ERP components may be related to attention; however, few studies have measured N1 and N2 amplitudes when attention was manipulated. In this study, two ERP sensory gating paradigms were used in which attention was manipulated by requiring participants either to focus their attention on the auditory stimuli (FA) or to watch a movie that distracted them from the auditory stimuli (SGM). To examine the relationship of N1 and N2 amplitudes to performance on three types of attention (selective, sustained, and control/switch) all participants completed the Test of ...
