# How is averaging used in calculating the Bereitschaftspotential?

I have a question about the averaging involved in the Bereitschaftspotential. On the wiki page you can read that, because it is so small, the Bereitschaftspotential only becomes apparent after averaging.

My question: do they mean averaging over different electrodes, but in a single trial?

Or do they mean averaging over electrodes AND over trials?

After reading more of the wiki page, I have found the answer in the Applications section: it can be detected from a single trial. – Guest_______ Jun 13 '14 at 7:00
