Abstract: Cortically generated auditory evoked potentials (N1 and P2) were recorded to frequency changes of harmonic and inharmonic complex tones comprising four sinusoidal components. The responses obtained when the frequencies suddenly became stationary after a period of 16/s changes were significantly shorter in latency when the frequencies were harmonically related, possibly implying a process of periodicity detection.
