This study investigates whether auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) can be used to assess the functioning of electrically stimulated cochleas. Electrically evoked auditory brainstem responses (EABRs) were recorded in guinea pigs with normal hearing and guinea pigs deafened by amikacin, a powerful ototoxic antibiotic, combined with diuretic aminooxyacetic acid (AOAA). Two different types of EABRs were observed in normal animals, depending on the electrical pulse intensity applied to the round… CONTINUE READING
