AUD 746 - Advanced Auditory Evoked Potentials

2 credit hours

Peripheral and cortical auditory evoked potentials are useful tools in assessing auditory processing beyond the estimation of hearing sensitivity. The Advanced Auditory Evoked Potential module provides a study of clinical tools for use in the differential diagnosis of cochlear vs. neural function, a diagnostic test battery for auditory neuropathy, and current uses of ASSRs and cortical potentials in the investigation of sensorineural hearing loss, auditory processing disorders, and aging. The primary goal of this module is to provide the advanced clinical audiologist with knowledge and skills to pursue additional audiologic information through the use of auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) for the diagnosis and rehabilitation of their patients. The secondary goal is to introduce AEP applications that have clinical utility, but are at present used primarily for auditory research purposes. Access to evoked potential equipment is highly recommended but not required for this course. (2 credits)
