Objective Estimation of Frequency-Specific Pure-Tone Hearing Thresholds following Bone-Conduction Hearing Aid Stimulation
Objective measurement of frequency-specific hearing thresholds with CAEPs is applicable to BAHS users and was highly correlated and not different.
Assessment of Cortical Auditory Function Using Electrophysiological and Neuropsychological Measurements in Children with Bone-Anchored Hearing Aids
Cortical auditory evoked potentials, along with neuropsychological evaluation, could be an essential tool for monitoring cortical auditory function in children with hearing loss after a bone-anchored hearing aid implantation.
Evaluation of auditory temporal processing in patients fitted with bone-anchored hearing aids
The present study was the first to indicate that the use of unilateral BAHA has no effect on the localization of auditory stimuli at the cortical level according to electrophysiological test.
Update on Bone-Conduction Auditory Brainstem Responses: A Review
The future clinical application of BC ABR for candidacy as well as for patients with BC hearing implants is recommended, and the optimal placements of bone oscillators to obtain favorable clinical outcomes in infants, children, and adults are examined.
Better Understanding of Direct Bone-Conduction Measurement: Comparison with Frequency-Specific Bone-Conduction Tones and Brainstem Responses
Compared with behaviorally measured BC pure-tone audiometry and objectively measured BC auditory brainstem response, the thresholds of BC direct were similar to BC PTA at low frequencies and BC ABR at high frequencies.
Bone Conduction Communication: Research Progress and Directions
Abstract : This report is a follow-on report to previous US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) work that served as a summary of bone conduction research that had been conducted to 2007 and provided a
Potencial evocado auditivo de tronco encefálico por condução óssea: uma revisão integrativa
An integrative review of the procedures used in the acquisition criteria of the Bone-Conducted Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials examination was conducted in order to help in the diagnosis of hearing problems.


Candidacy for the Bone-Anchored Hearing Aid
Preliminary results on the application of the BAHA in patients with unilateral conductive hearing loss suggest that stereophonic hearing can be re-established and the most powerful BAHA can be applied to patients with a sensorineural hearing loss component of up to 60 dB HL.
Auditory event-related potentials in post- and prelingually deaf cochlear implant recipients.
The results show that from the very first days after initial processor fitting prelingually and postlingually deaf CI recipients may show cortical correlates of stimulus processing and discrimination.

Auditory evoked potentials from the cortex: audiology applications
Cortical auditory evoked potentials obtained in passively alert adults have a remarkably high correspondence with perceptual threshold, suggesting that these potentials could be used clinically in the estimation of threshold and also to assess speech discrimination and perception.
Electrically evoked potentials in cochlear implant subjects
Electrically evoked auditory brain stem responses were studied in single channel cochlear implant subjects (3M/House) and when evoked electrically, potential latencies were shorter and interpeak intervals narrower than acoustically evokes potentials.
[Relative value of BAHA testing for the postoperative audiological outcome].
Preoperative testing before providing a BAHA system is a good way of predicting what level of hearing and speech perception can be expected after implantation, particularly in monosyllabic testing.
Significance of auditory evoked responses (EABR and P300) in cochlear implant subjects.
The results indicate that plasticity of the central auditory system is more important than that of the peripheral auditory system for speech learning in cochlear implant subjects.
Neurophysiology of Cochlear Implant Users I: Effects of Stimulus Current Level and Electrode Site on the Electrical ABR, MLR, and N1-P2 Response
Data from this study may serve as a normative reference for expected latency, amplitude and threshold values for the recording of electrically evoked auditory brainstem and cortical potentials.
Evaluation of cochlear implant benefit with auditory cortical evoked potentials: Evaluación de los beneficios del implante coclear por medio de potenciales evocados auditivos corticales
It is suggested that the poor results evoked with speech stimuli in contrast to those evokes with pure-tone stimuli in group A are due to the immaturity of (sub) cortical generators associated with acoustical and phonetic processing.
