Sixty-eight subjects ranging in age from 6 to 23 years were studied in an 'auditory oddball' event-related potential (ERP) paradigm. Our results replicate other studies, finding P3 as the most consistent component of ERPs since childhood, although great variability of this component was found in the 6-year-old group. Separate age/ERP component latency and(More)

The purpose of this study was to determine the dentoalveolar response of class III patients in the mixed and late mixed dentition phases fitted with a protraction mask and expansion. The before and after cephalometric records of 74 patients divided by sex were analyzed at ages 6 to 9 and 9 to 12 years to assess the dentoalveolar changes. Data was correlated(More)
