This article is concerned with investigations of human memory by means of event-related brain potentials (ERP) with a special emphasis on important theories of memory function, learning of visually presented stimuli, and differences between incidental and intentional learning paradigms. Some event-related potential components seem to be predictive of later memory performance. In different recognition memory paradigms, the second presentation of recognised stimuli elicited higher positivity in the ERP. These ERP effects are shown by means of different studies, especially by word and picture recognition paradigms. Further developments in the investigation of human memory processes are outlined.
