Abstract and Keywords
This chapter chronicles the discovery of event-related potential (ERP) components in nonhuman primates. It focuses mainly on monkeys but also includes evidence from other species when it exists. The discussion generally unfolds chronologically, beginning with work from the nineteenth century and continuing up to the present. It addresses differences in the methods and tasks that have been utilized to record ERPs in various species. Such methodological differences are a necessary complication in electrophysiological studies across species. The chapter concludes by emphasizing some of our greatest needs in comparative electrophysiology and how such ERP studies have the ability to reshape what we know about ERP components and cognitive processing in humans.
