Transient flash VEPs allow objective assessment of visual function and are easily recorded in young infants. However, due to their high variability, they are an insensitive surrogate marker of visual development. The aim of our study was to investigate the early maturation of temporal characteristics of steady-state flicker VEPs. Data from 53 VEP sessions were analyzed in term-born infants between birth and 20 months of age.
