People with Absolute Pitch Process Tones without Producing a P300
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
The P300 is a positive-going component of the event-related potential. In subjects with absolute, or ``perfect,'' pitch, the P300 elicited by the less frequent of two auditory probes is small or absent. In these subjects, visual probes elicit a normal P300. These results support the view of P300 as a manifestation of the updating of working memory.
