A series of experiments investigated the effects of continuous broadband noise (ipsilateral) on wave V of the click-evoked brainstem auditory evoked response (BAER). In general, a broadband noise masker increases the latency and decreases the amplitude of wave V. Varying both click and noise intensity, it was found that noise levels above about 40 dB SPL increase the latency and decrease the amplitude of wave V, regardless of click intensity. The effects of noise on wave V amplitude appear… CONTINUE READING
