I think Current Contents only has recent articles, so you're missing
most of the research -- you should try a literature search with a database
like PsycInfo.  There has been a lot of research done on N400 in language
and music paradigms, among others.  For specific authors, a couple to
look for would be Marta Kutas (discoverer of N400, with Steve Hillyard)
and (Marie?) Besson, who has done research on music perception with the
N400.

Enjoy,
Kevin
