Lateralisation of speech dominance by spectral analysis of evoked potentials.
  1. A E Davis,

    A computerised evoked potential test for the lateralisation of speech dominance was compared with the intracarotid sodium amylobarbitone test in 22 epileptic patients. Based on spectral analysis, the computer test correctly predicted the speech dominance of 15 of 16 left speech dominant and five of six right speech dominant patients. This non-invasive test is simple, quick, and innocuous and can be easily implemented on a small laboratory computer.
