Event-related potentials (ERPs) are one of the most commonly used noninvasive measures of human brain activity. The Mini ERP Boot Camp is a 3-day training workshop on ERP methods designed for beginning and intermediate level ERP researchers at any career stage who would like to obtain a firm grasp of the fundamentals of ERP research. This workshop will provide a practical introduction to using ERPs to answer questions about sensory, cognitive, affective, and motor processes in basic science and clinical research.

Workshop Topics:
What are ERPs?
Neural Origins of ERPs
Advantages of the ERP Technique
EEG Data Acquisition
