- Performance monitoring tasks generate response-locked event-related potentials (ERPs), generated from anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) region of the medial prefrontal cortex. However, the quantitative relationship between mental fatigue and error monitoring has not been closely investigated, which is the purpose of this study. Twenty-one participants were asked to perform a 100-minute 2-back work memory task for inducing mental fatigue and assessing error monitoring. The results showed that the participants were less accurate and slower during mental fatigue. The error-related negativity (ERN) amplitudes were statistically reduced after carrying out the 2-back task. The current pattern of results provides evidence that sustained attention plays an important role in maintaining error monitoring.
