AUDITORY evoked magnetic fields for pure-tone stimuli were measured in seven subjects with right hemisphere dominance for language using a whole- head magnetoencephalography system linked to magnetic resonance imaging. N100m responses were observed in both hemispheres in five subjects. The N100m response latency to contralateral stimulation was significantly shorter on the right than on the left in all cases. Normal right-handed subjects with left hemisphere dominance showed exactly the same responses. Therefore, the shorter N100m latency in the right hemisphere is independent of the dominant hemisphere for language.
