Melvin, Brenna D. The Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response in Old Versus Young Horses. Unpublished Doctor of Audiology Capstone Project, University of Northern Colorado, (2018). A brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER) is an objective test that measures changes in voltage in the ongoing electroencephalogram (EEG) in response to the presentation of acoustic stimuli, and is observed as a waveform with a known series of peaks. While the gold standard for measuring hearing sensitivity in humans is… 


A method of assessing auditory and brainstem function in horses.
Use of BAER to identify loss of auditory function in older horses.
BAER assessment can be used to identify partial deafness in older horses, and such horses should be managed appropriately, with particular care taken in noisy environments where hearing loss could put the horse and/or its owner at risk of harm.
Auditory brain stem response testing in anesthetized horses.
Auditory brain stem response testing, using insert earphones, was performed in 10 healthy horses given general anesthesia, and waves became essentially unrecognizable when peak values were below 87-dB SPL.
Brain stem auditory-evoked response in the nonanesthetized horse and pony.
The brain stem auditory-evoked response (BAER) was measured in horses and 7 ponies under conditions suitable for clinical diagnostic testing and Horses and ponies had a decreasing latency for all waves, as a result of increasing stimulus intensity.

Effects of aging on brainstem responses to toneburst auditory stimuli: a cross-sectional and longitudinal study in dogs.
Age-related hearing loss in these dogs started around 8-10 years of age and encompassed the entire frequency range, but started and progressed most rapidly in the middle- to high-frequency area.
Estimation of the pure-tone audiogram by the auditory brainstem response: a review.
It is demonstrated that ABRs to tonal stimuli can be successfully recorded in most clinical environments and can provide reasonably accurate estimates of 500- to 4000-Hz pure-tone behavioral thresholds in infants, children and adults.
Electrodiagnostic evaluation of auditory function in the dog.
Behavioural and Electroacoustic Calibration of Air-conducted Click and Toneburst Auditory Brainstem Response Stimuli
Techniques for performing electroacoustic and behavioural calibration of brief ABR stimuli are described and results were generally consistent with normative values reported in the literature.
Effects of age and sex on auditory brainstem response.
In both normal and hearing-impaired subjects, female subjects showed consistently shorter latency and larger amplitude at all age levels, and age had a slight effect on both latency and amplitude of wave V.
