Steady-state evoked potential responses were recorded from 337 normal full-term sleeping newborns to combined amplitude and frequency modulated tones. Responses were automatically detected by statistical analysis of the response phase. Responses were most easily and consistently recorded at carrier frequencies of 500 Hz, 1500 Hz and 4000 Hz when the modulation frequency was between 60 Hz and 100 Hz. In this modulation frequency range, the response latencies were found to be between 11 ms and 15 ms, depending on carrier frequency, and the mean response thresholds for the three carrier frequencies were found to be 41.36 dB HL, 24.41 dB HL and 34.51 dB HL respectively. The results of this study suggest that steady-state evoked potentials at modulation rates in excess of 60 Hz may be useful for frequency specific, automated hearing screening in newborns.
