We recorded middle latency auditory evoked potentials (MAEPs) in young (20-40 years) and elderly (60-80 years) subjects with normal hearing. The Pa component was prolonged in latency and markedly enhanced in amplitude in the elderly subjects. No changes were found in Na, or in the binaural interaction of the MAEP. Differences in Pa amplitude and latency were not due exclusively to changes in auditory thresholds, since they were not duplicated by changes in stimulus intensity, and persisted when… CONTINUE READING
