The aim of the present work is a comprehensive multi-methodological investigation of error correction. In addition to behavioral data, electrophysiological and imaging techniques are applied to examine the temporal and spatial characteristics of error correction. Chapter 2 will give the theoretical background of the experiments. In this chapter, the electrophysiological, psycholphysiological and neural correlates of error detection anderror correction will be reviewed and the curetn theories of error processing will be outlined. Chapter 3 will describe the applied methosd, including evetn-related potentials, heart rate, and functional magnetic resonance imaging. The empirical part of the present work is addressed in the subsequent Chapters 4 to 6. Chapter 4 will report the electro-physiological results, Chapter 5 the psychophysiological results and Chapter 6 the imaging results. Each of these chapters will end with a discussion of the obtained results within the framework of the current theories of error processing. Chapter 7 will summarize the main findings of the present work and provide an integrative discussion of these findings.
