Abstract

A word priming paradigm involving primed, unprimed, and non-word experimental conditions was used to elicit event-related potentials (ERPs) in normal, young adult males in identically equipped electrophysiology laboratories located in 6 different cities in the USA. Analyses of the average amplitude of a specified latency window containing the N400, the N400 peak amplitude, or the latency of the N400 peak amplitude found no differences among laboratory locations. The shape of the N400 ERP wave form was also found to be highly correlated across laboratory sites for each experimental condition. Comparison of the data with analogous word priming paradigms revealed similar patterns for the N400 components and response times in both the primed and unprimed experimental conditions. These findings suggest that the data from all 6 laboratory locations are consistent with each other and are congruous with those found in other N400 studies and will permit pooling of subject data for future research.
