swLORETA  inverse solution displaying the neural generators of the N3 suppression effect for pseudo-targets. LORETA was computed on the difference wave obtained by subtracting ERPs to L-F+ from ERP to pseudo-targets in the time window 370–430 ms, corresponding to the maximum amplitude of the prefrontal N3 response. A realistic boundary element model (BEM) was derived from a T1 weighted 3D MRI data set by segmentation of the brain tissue. The BEM model consisted of one homogenic compartment made up of 3446 vertices and 6888 triangles. The head model was used for intra-cranial localization of surface potentials. Segmentation and head model generation were performed using the ASA (A.N.T. Software B.V., Enschede, the Netherlands) package . The electromagnetic dipoles are shown as arrows and indicate the position, orientation and magnitude of dipole modelling solution applied to the ERP difference wave in the specific time window (370–430 ms). The different colours represent differences in the magnitude of the electromagnetic signal (in nA). 0.369 indicates the boundary of time window (370 ms at 512 Hz of sampling rate). L = left; R = right; P = posterior; A = anterior; numbers refer to the displayed brain slice in coronal, axial and sagittal views, respectively.
