Event-related brain potential indices of involuntary attention to auditory stimulus changes

(from the chapter) In addition to revealing the sequence of short-lived brain activations involved in involuntary attention and leading to distracted task performance, simultaneous measurements of ERPs and behavioral distraction caused by deviant sounds may provide valuable information on effects of ethanol and brain injuries on attention. Combining behavioral and ERP measures appears to be a useful approach in studies on function and dysfunction of brain mechanisms involved in involuntary orienting of attention to changes in the auditory environment and in reorienting attention back to the distracted task.
