Bilateral ABRs were recorded from 452 infants 32-45 weeks conceptional age. Differences in laterality, gender and appropriateness for gestational age were investigated in order to increase our understanding of developmental processes in early life. Rate effects were also studied in a subsample of infants (145 ears). All subjects were free of conditions(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the feasibility of obtaining transient-evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) directly in the nursery, to examine the nature of failures in this population, and to determine the time requirements for this test relative to the auditory brain stem response (ABR). DESIGN TEOAEs and ABRs were recorded from 149 ears, at bedside, in the(More)
The records of 1087 full- and pre-term infants with normal hearing were reviewed for auditory brain-stem response (ABR) abnormalities. Subjects were classified according to various complications common to the newborn. A logistic regression analysis was performed in order to determine the risk of incurring ABR deviations associated with specific diagnoses in(More)
Neurophysiologic and behavioral assessments of auditory function were performed on 224 very low birth weight (less than or equal to 1500 gm) infants requiring intensive care in the nursery. The subjects were studied prospectively from 36 weeks to 4 years of age, as available for follow-up. To classify them according to their neonatal status, we applied a(More)
Average auditory brain-stem responses (ABRs) evoked by left and right ear stimulation of varying intensities were recorded from ipsilateral and contralateral scalp placements in human neonates. Subjects included pre-term infants, healthy full-term infants and high risk, full-term infants. Pre-term infants were classified into 4 age groups ranging from 29 to(More)
With magnifying glasses in hand, twelve girls and boys from East Side Community High School’s sixth grade awaited the arrival of their guides at the American Museum of Natural History. They were here not to revisit the renowned old dinosaur halls or to peruse the latest temporary exhibition but to make a study of the museum building itself. Indeed, this(More)
The likelihood of sustaining neurological, sensory or cognitive deficits is considerably greater for very low birthweight (VLBW) infants who require intensive care in early postnatal life than those without major neonatal illness. Identifying which, if any, medical events are responsible for an adverse outcome is most difficult in the face of multiple(More)
The Neurological and Adaptive Capacity Score (NACS) and the auditory brainstem response (ABR) are measures that, respectively, provide neurobehavioral and neurophysiological information regarding the status of the central nervous system (CNS) in the neonatal period. We evaluated these measures as indices of CNS functioning in 15 neonates born at risk for(More)
