Does an Angry Salesman Scary the Students of University of Silesia? - Visual ERP Studies

Abstract

Three visual ERP tasks with oddball paradigm (geometric figures, picture of a nice lady and an angry salesman, a sentence with non logic word) were performed by students of University of Silesia. Few ranges of band-pass filters and artifact correction were examined to evaluate the optimal parameters of data analysis. Shape, latency and amplitude of P300 in the task with a picture of angry salesman as well as in the sentence task did not differ from the simple task with geometric figures. These results indicate that emotional picture or a sentence with illogical word did not affect cognitive activity in studied group of students, probably because the task was not very complex.
