Auditory P300 event-related potentials were obtained at C3 and C4 recording sites from 20 patients with cerebral lesions that affected auditory areas of the brain. The patient group was matched for age and hearing sensitivity to a control group of 20 subjects. There were significant differences between the two groups for both latency and amplitude of the P300. Eight patients demonstrated an absent P300 for at least one recording condition while all subjects in the control group had readable P300s in all recording conditions. A subset of patients with lesions limited to one hemisphere showed no laterality effects for amplitude or latency of the P300 for the ear or electrode that was either ipsilateral or contralateral to the lesion. In comparison to the P2 evoked potential, the P3 was more sensitive to neurologic lesions.
