Caption: Objective and easy measurement of sensory processing is extremely difficult in non-verbal or vulnerable pediatric patients. This methodology quantitatively assesses infants and children's cortical processing of light touch, speech sounds and the multisensory processing of the 2 stimuli, without requiring active subject participation or causing discomfort in vulnerable patients.
