Ebook Format : Original PDF . Print Replica.Auditory Brainstem Evoked Potentials: Clinical and Research Applications provides a solid foundation of the theoretical principles of auditory evoked potential principles essential for understanding the neural bases of changes in the response indices essential for both the development of optimal clinical test strategies, and interpretation of test results. Developed for graduate-level audiology students, this comprehensive text aims to build a fundamental understanding of auditory evoked brainstem responses (ABR), and their relationship to normal and impaired auditory function, as well as its various Audiologic and Neurootologic applications.
In addition to covering the classical onset ABR, the book provides a thorough review of sustained brainstem responses elicited by complex sounds, including auditory steady state response (ASSR), envelope following response (EFR), and frequency following response (FFR), and the growing clinical and research applications of these responses. By exploring why certain stimulus manipulations are required to answer specific clinical questions, the author provide the resources needed for students and clinicians to make reasoned decisions about the optimal protocol to use in a given situation.
