Somesthetic information from lower extremities is processed by cerebral cortex after traversing the sensory pathways of peripheral nerve, spinal cord, brain-stem and thalamus. Clinical utility of somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) during human development requires systematic analysis of normative data acquired during various stages of body growth and nervous system maturation. Accordingly, SSEPs after tibial nerve stimulation were studied in 32 normal awake children (1-8 years old) and… CONTINUE READING
