Abstract and Keywords

Brain development is a complex and dynamic process dependent on the interaction of multiple internal and external factors. Currently, there are very few neuroimaging tools that are amenable to measuring brain development in typically developing infants and children. Of the tools available, the recording of event-related potentials (ERPs) is perhaps uniquely well suited to the challenges of conducting research with developing populations. This chapter reviews research on brain development relevant to developmental ERP researchers, some of the issues involved in identifying ERP components in developing populations, and some of the literature related to the development of specific ERP components.

Keywords: brain development, event-related potentials, ERP component, child development
