1. 1. The auditory averaged evoked response (AER) was measured at the vertex in normal children and adults during the transition from wakefulness to sleep and throughout the night. 2. 2. The amplitude of wave N2 at sleep onset was compared to values obtained during subsequent non-REM sleep. 3. 3. The largest amplitude of wave N2 of the auditory AER occurred within 10 min of sleep onset regardless of state of consciousness. 4. 4. The influence of sleep onset per se on wave N2 amplitude was greater than the effect of stage of sleep.
