Age-dependent changes of short-latency somatosensory evoked potentials following median nerve stimulation in humans were investigated in two groups of healthy adults aged 20-30 and 50-60 years. Normative values for both age groups are given. Compared to the younger group, in the older one P27 latency and N20-P27 interpeak latency were about 2 ms longer, and P27-N35 and P27-P45 interpeak latencies were significantly decreased. These findings suggest that N20 and P27 are generated by different structures and that the subsequent components do not depend on P27.
