Functional damage to the acoustic nerve in arachnopathia pontocerebellaris is not necessarily irreversible in all cases. In the case of postarachnitic strangulation where only circumscript myelin sheath damage is present in the sense of a neurapraxia, functional integrety can be achieved with surgical decompression of the nerve. With the aid of various neuro-otological examination methods such as cisternoscopy, electrocochleography, and brain stem audiometry, we are now able to exactly… Expand

Endoscopy of the cerebellopontine angle.
TLDR
Endoscopy of the pontine angle ("cisternoscopy") is a decisive diagnostic procedure in clarifying pathological processes in this region and the method and the diagnostic results are described. Expand
Auditory-evoked far fields averaged from the scalp of humans.
TLDR
Under the conditions of skull and scalp boundaries and intracranial inhomogeneities, recordings from a single electrode position offer little indication as to the location of a wave's neural generator(s), whereas multiple recording sites may be more informative. Expand
