Average evoked potentials (AEPs) to clicks were obtained while a subject performed a selective listening task: the stimuli consisted of a series of numbers, letters and clicks, with separate series presented to each ear. Subjects were instructed to attend to one or the other ear and at different times to report the letters or clicks. The results show enhancement of a late positive component of the click AEP when clicks, but not when letters were reported. No differences in the AEP were found for those clicks presented in the attended ear as compared to those in the rejected (non-attendant) ear.
