Poster #133: Rachel Morse – Subjective Motivation’s Role on the Error-Related Negativity

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Amy McDonnell

Our study looked at the role of subjective, self-reported motivation on the Error-Related Negativity (ERN) amplitude. The ERN is a neural component that monitors and compensates when you make a mistake. Previous studies show a positive link between manipulated motivation and ERN amplitude. Our study looked at subjective motivation’s link to ERN amplitude, but did not find a significant effect. Future studies should look at differences in motivation constructs and their roles in error processing.
