The mismatch negativity event-related potential (MMN) was elicited in normal school-age children in response to just perceptibly different variants of the speech phoneme /da/. A significant MMN was measured in each subject tested. Child and adult MMNs were similar with respect to peak latency and duration. Measures of MMN magnitude (peak-to-peak amplitude and area) were significantly larger in children than in adults. The results of the present study indicate that the MMN can be elicited in… CONTINUE READING
