AUD 745 - Intro to Auditory Evoked Potentials

8 weeks/2 credit hours

This module is designed to offer introductory principles of various physiological and electro-physiological measurements in the area of auditory evoked potentials (AEPs). Whereas AEPs comprise a series of electrical events throughout the entire auditory pathway, particular attention will be focused on Short-Latency or Early Latency AEP measurements and their clinical application. This module will cover cochlear microphonics and the summating potential, electrocochleography (ECochG), the auditory brainstem response (ABR), and the auditory steady state response (ASSR). Understanding diagnostic applications and basic interpretation of test results and their relation to neuroanatomy and physiology of the auditory system will be emphasized. Access to ABR equipment for the practice with various test protocols is beneficial but not required.
