The purpose of this study was to determine whether the masking-level difference (MLD) obtained with the late (P2) auditory evoked potentials has characteristics similar to those reported for the behavioral MLD with respect to the effects of noise level. Psychoacoustic studies have shown that the magnitude of the MLD increases as a function of the noise(More)
The masking level difference (MLD) is a psychoacoustic phenomenon derived from the subtraction of S pi No thresholds (signals pi radians out of phase and noise in phase at the two ears) from SoNo thresholds (signals and noise in phase at the two ears). The purpose of this study was to determine if the MLD derived from the late components (P1, N1, P2, N2) of(More)
A masking level difference (MLD) paradigm was used to investigate the presence of an electrophysiologic correlate of the psychoacoustic MLD in the middle and late auditory evoked potentials. In experiment 1, middle latency potentials were recorded in six normal-hearing young adults using vertex and temporal electrode montages. Tone bursts of 500 Hz(More)
This study investigated the possibility of a correlate of the masking level difference (MLD) in the auditory brainstem response (ABR), given that behavioral data indicate the brainstem origination of the MLD. Previous studies have reported MLD characteristics in the late auditory evoked potentials. In the present study, stimuli were presented in S(o)N(o)(More)
High-frequency hearing losses can substantially confound the interpretation of click-evoked auditory brainstem responses (ABRs). One method proposed to circumvent the problem is to use frequency-specific tone pips to stimulate equivalent areas on the basilar membrane in normal and pathologic groups, or in both ears of asymmetrically impaired patients.
