PURPOSE AND BACKGROUND Acoustic signals are transmitted through the external and middle ear mechanically to the cochlea where they are transduced into electrical impulse for further transmission via the auditory nerve. The auditory nerve encodes the acoustic sounds that are conveyed to the auditory brainstem. Multiple brainstem nuclei, the cochlea, the(More)
BACKGROUND The click and tone-evoked auditory brainstem responses are widely used in clinical practice due to their consistency and predictability. More recently, the speech-evoked responses have been used to evaluate subcortical processing of complex signals, not revealed by responses to clicks and tones. AIMS Disyllable stimuli corresponding to familiar(More)
OBJECTIVES This study examined the use of auditory brainstem response (ABR) by classic clicks and verbal stimuli in young dyslexic adults to identify latency abnormalities. METHODS Subjects included 10 dyslexic adults and 10 age-, sex-, IQ-, education-, and hearing sensitivity-matched normal subjects. Both groups had normal auditory status. Measurements(More)
