Electrophysiology is the process of measuring electrical signals that are generated by living organisms. The electroencephalogram (EEG) is a safe and non-invasive tool that enables direct measurements of neural activity in the human brain via electrodes that are placed on the scalp. EEG is recorded in human volunteers during task performance and can be used to track the precise temporal dynamics of cognitive processing in the brain. An advantage of using EEG to measure neural activity is that it can be used to measure cognitive processes that may not be directly observable. For example, the event-related brain potential (ERP) technique allows researchers to measure specific cognitive processes, such as motor preparation, the allocation of selective attention, or face recognition, in real time.
