Steady-state scalp evoked potentials were recorded in response to amplitude modulated vibration applied to the fingers and palmar surface of one hand. Evoked response dependence on the frequency of amplitude modulation in the 2-40 Hz range was studied in a group of normal young adult volunteers. Response amplitude was greatest at low amplitude modulation frequencies. The greatest signal to EEG noise ratios were found at modulation frequencies near 26 Hz. At modulation frequencies near 26 Hz the steady-state response latency was found to be 58 +/- 14 msec. Inverse dipole modeling localized the steady-state evoked response generators in or near somatosensory cortex with the dipole moment orientation being predominantly in the anterior-posterior direction.
