A paper published in the recent issue of Psychophysiology describes differences in the brain's response (event-related potentials, or "ERPs") to pictures and words that describe the same object. In two studies, the authors evaluated how the brain reacts differently to a picture of an object or its name when people were looking for either the picture or the name in a visual display.

Deciphering the subtle, complex electrical signals emanating from the brain has yielded important insights into the still-mysterious neural mechanisms that underlie behavior. By recording a subject's faint brain signals via arrays of scalp electrodes during cognitive tasks, researchers can extract "event-related potentials" (ERPs) that enable them to pinpoint with great accuracy when the brain reacts to components of the tasks.
