The purpose of this paper is primarily to construct suitable models of Event Related Potentials (ERPs for short) of human beings while they engage in some tasks. We obtain some models by superposing several normal distributions of ERPs. By simulations we evaluate the models how much they are satisfactory to show brain situations while they are activated to specific tasks. From the evaluation and related discussions, we consider that the method used in this paper is useful for estimating phenomena in human brains, particularly when they engage in tasks of recognizing words or phrases.
