Event-related potentials in an auditory oddball situation in the rat.

Abstract : Evoked potentials were recorded from the auditory cortex of both freely moving and anesthetized rats when deviant sounds were presented in a homogenous series of standard sounds (oddball condition). A component of the evoked response to deviant sounds, the mismatch negativity (MMN), may underlie the ability to discriminate acoustic differences, a fundamental aspect of auditory perception. Whereas most MMN studies in animals have been done using simple sounds, this study involved a more complex set of sounds (synthesized vowels). The freely moving rats had previously undergone behavioral training in which they learned to respond differentially to these sounds. Although we found little evidence in this preparation for the typical, epidurally recorded, MMN response, a significant difference between deviant and standard evoked potentials was noted for the freely moving animals in the 100-200 ms range following stimulus onset. No such difference was found in the anesthetized animals.
