Abstract

Auditory evoked potentials (AEP) were recorded from the left and right hemispheres of six male and six female right handed preschool age children (4 years old) in response to stop consonants with VOT values of 0, +20, +40, and +60 msec. Neuroelectrical correlates of between category phoneme discrimination were found only in the right hemisphere. A second component of the cortical response was sensitive to changes both within and between the phoneme categories. Other AEP components reflected sex and hemisphere differences.
