Abstract

In this article, we describe an efficient method for testing both auditory receptor and auditory nerve function in a single recording session. Auditory receptor function is tested in response to pure tone, tone burst and click acoustic stimuli (i.e. distortion products of otoacoustic emissions, DPOAE; and auditory-evoked brainstem responses, ABR). The function of the auditory neurons and nerve is measured in response to direct electric current stimulation (i.e. electrically evoked auditory brainstem responses, eABR). All measurements were obtained from anesthetized laboratory rats during single recording sessions using hardware and software stimulation and analysis programs developed by Intelligent Hearing Systems, Miami, FL.
