Recordings of early and late auditory evoked potentials and spectral analysis of scalp EEGs of 14 eight- and nine-year-old boys with difficulties in reading, writing and spelling were compared with those of 18 matched controls. The recordings of the poor readers lacked the normal asymmetry of central conduction time and wave amplitude in the early (brainstem) auditory evoked potentials, and late (cortical) evoked potential components were reduced in amplitude. Spontaneous EEG activity was… CONTINUE READING
