The effect of a visual task on the active micromechanical properties of the cochlea studied by the evoked otoacoustic emissions (EOAEs) has been the subject of only one published study (Brain Research, 44 (1988) 380-383). In order to examine the reliability of this effect, a similar study has been run on 16 subjects. A significant decrease in EOAEs during a(More)
One hundred and forty-seven adult recipients of the Nucleus 24 cochlear implant system, from 13 different European countries, were tested using neural response telemetry to measure the electrically evoked compound action potential (ECAP), according to a standardised postoperative measurement procedure. Recordings were obtained in 96% of these subjects with(More)
OBJECTIVE Response from spiral ganglion cells to electrical stimulation via the Nucleus 24 cochlear implant can be measured using the neural response telemetry system. The purpose of this study was to assess, in children, the correlation between the neural response threshold and the behavioral levels used for cochlear implant programming process. METHODS(More)
Correlations between spectrum analysis of evoked otoacoustic emissions (EOAEs) and hearing losses have been calculated in 150 patients with pure sensorineural hearing loss. Significant correlations were found. The greater the high-frequency spectral components of the EOAE, the better the high-frequency hearing. However the relationship is complex, and it(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the relationships between psychophysical perceptions and the electrically evoked auditory brainstem responses (EABRs) in multichannel cochlear implant (CI) users and to determine the effectiveness of EABRs in electrode failure. DESIGN A descriptive study reported the EABR characteristics while the different electrodes were activated.(More)
BAEPs and MLRs for clicks were recorded for situations of selective attention, ignoring stimuli and mental arithmetic. Certain studies have shown no attention effect on these evoked potentials, but several others have shown reduction of latency and increase in amplitude under selective attention. Our study finds no significant difference in latency or(More)
To compare the ototoxicity of amikacin and netilmicin, tone audiometry, high-frequency audiometry, early auditory evoked potentials, and evoked otoacoustic emission testing were used to evaluate 30 patients (15 under amikacin and 15 under netilmicin). Ototoxicity was not significantly different in the two groups.
We report our techniques of electrically elicited Auditory Brainstem Responses (eABR) in Digisonic DX 10 cochlear implanted patients and summarize the theoretical interests of objectives measures in pre-, per- and post-operative periods of the cochlear implantation process. This report demonstrates the major interest of eABR during rehabilitation with a(More)
