The visually evoked cortical potential and the cortical alpha rhythm: Their physiological basis and some behavioral considerations

1 January 1979

Abstract

Physiological models for the generation of the Visually Evoked Cortical Potential (VECP) and the Alpha Rhythm are discussed. Certain stimulus and response variables are considered with respect to their effects on the VECP and the Alpha Rhythm. Consideration is also given to the possible physiological significance of these gross surface cortical potentials relative to the scheme of information processing. A model for an internal attentional mechanism is developed.
