Equivalent Current Sources of the Auditory Evoked Gamma Band and Steady State Fields
Neural activity in the auditory cortex of the human brain can be evoked by presenting transient acoustic stimuli to the ear. Using the Magnes Biomagnetometer System at the Scripps Clinic in La Jolla CA, we measured the magnetic fields generated by this neural activity. The auditory steady-state response (SSR), first studied by Galambos et al.1, is a sinusoidal response elicited by periodic trains of auditory click transients presented at rates ranging from 15–70 Hz. Galambos et al. proposed that the SSR was generated by a superposition of the individual transient middle-latency responses.
