Evoked potential

In neurophysiology, an evoked potential is any change in the voltages of a subject's scalp induced by a change in their sensory input. The scalp voltages are typically measured in microvolts by an electroencephalograph (EEG) machine.

Evoked potentials are usually done on one sensory mode at a time. Visual evoked potentials may be induced by a flashing light, auditory evoked potentials by the onset of a sound, and somatosensory evoked potentials by a solenoid pulsing against a person's skin.
