Abstract We have studied the relationship between the P300 latency and regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) in 25 nondemented patients who had lacunar infarctions in the territory of the deep perforating branches of the internal carotid artery system. A significant prolongation of the P300 latency with advancing age was observed. There was a negative correlation between the P300 latency and the rCBF. These results indicate that a combination of P300 latency and rCBF measurements might prove more sensitive in detecting mental decline than rCBF studies alone in nondemented patients with lacunar infarctions.
