Abstract : Since synthetic speech stimuli are currently employed in commercial aircraft systems, this stimulus type has promise as a relatively unobtrusive probe to elicit event-related brain potentials (ERP) while people perform mental work in an operational environment. Experimental work has shown the feasibility of recording speech-related potentials from synthetic speech stimuli while employing standard techniques. Preliminary results have shown reliable increases in the P300 component at the Pz site when subjects perform mental work to a word stimulus when compared to conditions where the word stimulus is being ignored.
