Binaural interaction in the brainstem and middle latency auditory evoked potentials to intensity (dI) and timing differences (dT) between the two ears was studied in 10 normal hearing young adults. A component reflecting binaural interaction in the brainstem potentials occurred at approximately 7 ms and was of largest amplitude when dI and dT were 0. The(More)
An 11-yr-old girl had an absence of sensory components of auditory evoked potentials (brainstem, middle and long-latency) to click and tone burst stimuli that she could clearly hear. Psychoacoustic tests revealed a marked impairment of those auditory perceptions dependent on temporal cues, that is, lateralization of binaural clicks, change of binaural(More)
Fifteen infants with hydrocephalus ranging in age from 32 to 43 weeks from conception were studied. The auditory brainstem response (ABR) was measured 48 h prior to the placement of a CSF shunt and within 5 days following shunt insertion. Results of this study showed a general improvement in the ABR following placement of the shunt. No consistent patterns(More)
We examined clinical and neurophysiologic measures in 10 children 4 to 9 years after neonatal extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Electroencephalograms did not correlate with clinical or other neurophysiologic measures of interhemispheric asymmetry. By ultrasound imaging, the right internal carotid artery velocity was approximately 62% of that on the left,(More)
A group of 20 children with spastic cerebral palsy underwent selective dorsal rhizotomy for alleviation of spasticity. Pre- and postoperatively, cortical somatosensory evoked responses (cSSEP), H reflex and F wave studies were done. Clinically there was dramatic reduction of tone without noticeable sensory loss. The electrophysiologic studies showed several(More)
Binaural interaction occurs in the auditory evoked potentials when the sum of the monaural auditory evoked potentials are not equivalent to the binaural evoked auditory potentials. Binaural interaction of the early- (0-10 ms), middle- (10-50 ms) and long-latency (50-200 ms) auditory evoked potentials was studied in 17 normal young adults. For the early(More)
Binaural interactions in brain-stem auditory evoked potentials and in middle latency auditory evoked potentials were studied in 18 normal hearing adults and 10 normal term infants. Binaural interactions at the times of ABR waves V and VI were comparable in term infants and adults. Binaural interaction during the time domain of the middle latency auditory(More)
The Special Olympics Healthy Hearing Program provides a unique opportunity to determine the hearing service needs of individuals with mild intellectual disabilities participating in athletic endeavors in countries throughout the world. The Healthy Hearing Program screened 855 of 1800 athletes with intellectual disability over a period of a week at Nagano,(More)
