Abstract

Auditory evoked responses were recorded from scalp locations over the left and right hemispheres of newborn infants in response to series of computer synthesized speech sounds. The children were later tested at 3 years of age on a verbal test. Multivariate analyses of the AER data identified regions of the brain wave which discriminated between children who three years later performed at different levels on a standard language performance test.
