pseudo-random auditory sequence 80% standard tones – 500 Hz 20% deviant tones – 550 Hz time standardsdeviants Mismatch negativity (MMN) paradigm and hypothesis time (ms) Paradigm: amplitude (μV) Deviant ERP Standard ERP Hypothesis: MMN is caused by recurrent dynamics enabled by backward connections Garrido et al., Neuroimage 2007
Mismatch Negativity scalp topography of ERPs time (ms) sensors standard deviant Deviant ERP Standard ERP time (ms) amplitude (μV) Hypothesis: MMN is caused by recurrent dynamics enabled by backward connections

Analysis steps 0. Have a HYPOTHESIS! 1.Preprocessing and SVD decomposition 2.Model specification: specify cortical areas and inter- areal connections for various competing models that you think might explain your data 3.Model inversion: find the parameters that minimize differences between observed measurements and model predictions for each of the competing models 4.Bayesian model comparison: make a statistical inferences about which model best describes the data
