EEG during wakefulness and sleep and middle latency somatosensory evoked potentials from the median nerve were recorded in a 3-year-old boy with hyperekplexia and his close relatives (parents and two sisters). Somatosensory evoked potentials, in the patient, showed abnormally high amplitude over the centro-parietal regions. Pathophysiological mechanisms of hyperekplexia are discussed.
