The mask served to reduce the visibility of the target letter; so to increase the difficulty of identifying the target letter and to increase the flanker interference. The mask had the same visual angle as a single letter and was made of the four letters printed on top of each other.

There are two reasons for us to choose the time window of 150 to 50 ms prior to the response as the baseline for adjusting the EEG epochs. First, this is the same time window as in our previous study (Tsai et al., 2005), which enables us to make a fair comparison across the two studies. Second, we hoped to avoid a time window too closely to the range of P300, which has been shown to be reduced by sleepiness (e.g. Lee et al., 2004).
There was no Ne/ERN evident on error trials without correction as correct trials, so we did not include these trials into analyses.
Scheffers et al. (1999) used memory and visual search tasks which are not typical Ne/ERN paradigm.
