This chapter discusses, in the context of the predictive-coding framework, evoked responses to various changes in the environment and describes how the responses are related to variations in stimulus probability and the subject’s expectations. The focus is on three well-known responses: (a) the mismatch negativity peaking at 100 to 250 ms and elicited to changes in stimulus attributes, even when the stimuli are not attended to, (b) the P300 response peaking about 300 ms after attended low-probability “oddball” stimuli, and (c) the N400 peaking about 400 ms after semantic or lexical violations of sentences presented either visually or auditorily. Continent negative variation and error-related negativity are introduced as well.
