OBJECTIVE The nature of the auditory steady-state responses (ASSR) evoked with 40-Hz click trains and their relationship to auditory brainstem and middle latency responses (ABR/MLR), gamma band responses (GBR) and beta band responses (BBR) were investigated using superposition theory. Transient responses obtained by continuous loop averaging deconvolution(More)
A method to acquire transient evoked responses at high rates, corresponding to traditional steady state responses (SSR) is developed. Continuous Loop Averaging Deconvolution (CLAD) method is used in conjunction with tailored, low-jitter stimulation sequences. A physiological brain convolution model for SSR generation is adapted and mathematically analyzed.(More)
OBJECTIVES Using the continuous loop averaging deconvolution (CLAD) technique for conventional electrocochleography (ECochG) and auditory brainstem response (ABR) recordings, the effects of testing at high stimulus rates may have the potential to diagnose disorders of the inner ear and auditory nerve. First, a body of normative data using the CLAD technique(More)
In this study, a new monitoring system is developed to measure cochlear blood flow (CBF) and electrocochleography (ECochG) during transient ischemic episodes of the cochlea. A newly designed otic probe was used for the simultaneous recordings of laser-Doppler CBF and ECochG directly from the round window (RW). The probe enabled the recording of high(More)
Electrophysiological indices of auditory binaural beats illusions are studied using late latency evoked responses. Binaural beats are generated by continuous monaural FM tones with slightly different ascending and descending frequencies lasting about 25 ms presented at 1 sec intervals. Frequency changes are carefully adjusted to avoid any creation of abrupt(More)
A system capable of comprehensive and detailed monitoring of the cochlea and the auditory nerve during intraoperative surgery was developed. The cochlear blood flow (CBF) and the electrocochleogram (ECochGm) were recorded at the round window (RW) niche using a specially designed otic probe. The ECochGm was further processed to obtain cochlear microphonics(More)
Methods and instrumentation were developed to monitor cochlea and auditory function during surgery. The system allows real time assessment of the cochlear function during auditory nerve manipulation. A specially designed optic probe, placed on the round window (RW) niche, enables simultaneous acquisition of cochlear blood flow (CBF) and electrocochleogram(More)
OBJECTIVE To document our experiences using a new skull tapping induced Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials (tap VEMPs) technique combined with standard Auditory Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials (AC VEMPs) for advanced clinical assessment of cerebellopontine angle tumor (CPAT) patients. DESIGN AND STUDY SAMPLE Three patients were selected in order(More)
