Abstract

Auditory evoked magnetic fields of the human brain were recorded with a four-channel 1st order gradiometer. Pitch deviance in a sequence of repetitive tone pips elicited magnetic evoked-response changes with a topography suggesting that a neuronal mismatch process to the deviant tones activates the primary auditory cortex.
