Wiki Version:
The ERP CORE is a freely available online resource consisting of optimized paradigms, experiment control scripts, example data from 40 participants, data processing pipelines and analysis scripts, and a broad set of results for 7 different ERP components obtained from 6 different ERP paradigms: - N170 (Face Perception Paradigm) - MMN (Passive Auditory Oddball Paradigm) - N2pc (Simple Visual Search Paradigm) - N400 (Word Pair Judgement Paradigm) - P3b (Active Visual Oddball Paradigm) - LRP and ERN (Flankers Paradigm) A journal article describing the ERP CORE is [available here][1]. --- **Information about Sharing and Copyright** These resources are shared under the terms of a Creative Commons license ([CC BY-SA 4.0][2]).

ERP CORE: An open resource for human event-related potential research. NeuroImage. --- **Experiment Control Scripts and Installation Instructions** The experiment control scripts were written in Presentation. The scripts and installation instructions can be found in the "Experiment Control Files" Component below. You must download [Presentation][4] to open and run these scripts. You can download a free trial version to see the scripts. --- **Data and Analysis Scripts** We provide data from 40 neurotypical adults, along with archival copies of the EEGLAB/ERPLAB scripts for analyzing the data. Separate data files and scripts are provided for each of the 7 components. The data files are very large and may take a long time to download, so we have provided the data separately for each component, with two formats: (a) Just the initial raw EEG files and processing scripts, (b) All data files, including the results of intermediate processing steps, along with the processing scripts. The former is much smaller than the latter, and the scripts can create the files for the intermediate processing steps. However, the latter option can be useful if you have trouble getting the scripts to run or don’t want to run all of the processing stages. --- **Contact Us** To download the latest versions of the scripts or to report bugs, visit For other questions about the ERP CORE, contact us at Additional ERP resources are available on our website ( [1]: [2]: [3]: [4]:
