Middle-latency auditory evoked potentials (MAEPs) were recorded in controls and patients with focal lesions in dorsalateral prefrontal cortex. Unilateral prefrontal lesions increased the amplitude of the Pa component of the MAEP beginning at 25-35 ms poststimulus. The data suggest that prefrontal cortex exerts early inhibitory modulation of input to primary auditory cortex in humans.
