Auditory middle latency responses (MLRs) have been recorded in 217 patients ranging in age from 6 days to 20 years. The probability of obtaining MLR components Na and Pa was higher with a high-pass filter setting of 15 Hz, 12 dB/octave as compared to 3 Hz, 6 dB/octave. This effect was found at all ages tested. Age-related latency effects were apparent with 3 Hz but not 15 Hz filtering.
