Ten healthy volunteers were submitted to an auditory oddball event related potentials (ERP) paradigm. Single trial 500 ms poststimulus ERPs (Pz, Cz, Fz--linked earlobes) along with the correspondent 1000 ms prestimulus EEG (O1-Cz) were stored. EEG epochs were submitted to spectral analysis and a slow wave index (SWI = delta + theta/total) was computed. Three selective ERP averages corresponding to low, medium and high SWI were computed. N2 latency was longer and P3a amplitude was lower in high SWI averages as compared to low SWI averages.
