Abstract and Keywords

Gaining an understanding of the neural correlates of language is a difficult task given the rapidity of language processing. The excellent temporal resolution associated with event-related potentials (ERPs) makes them an ideal method for investigations in this area. This chapter discusses factors that must be considered when using ERPs and provides guidelines for effective experimental design and recording and analysis of ERP data. It then discusses the characteristics of a number of ERP components used in the study of language comprehension and production, offering examples of how these have been implemented within a variety of research areas.

Keywords: event-related potential, ERP, language comprehension, language production, N400, P600
