Measurement of the auditory brainstem response (ABR) to study auditory sensitivity in mice.

Abstract

The ABR is an electroencephalographic response measured with scalp electrodes. It provides a quick, easy, and reliable method for physiological assessment of auditory sensitivity in mice. A series of brief tone pips or clicks is presented to an anesthetized mouse at a high rate of speed; each click evokes waves of neural activity in the brainstem that are… (More)
