Abstract : A 'Computer for Averaging Transients' (CAT) has been designed, constructed, and tested; the CAT is capable of averaging overall electroencephalogram (EEG) patterns following repeated stimuli, thereby separating the EEG response waveform from the many unrelated signals of much larger magnitude encountered in making EEG recordings. The CAT has been tested using a small flashing light as the stimulus. The results from five different persons indicate that the CAT performs the necessary averaging task well, and that the device can be successfully employed in future physiological experiments.
