• A battery of subjective and electrophysiologic auditory and vestibular tests were administered to 22 patients with neurologically confirmed brain-stem lesions to investigate the interrelationships between the test results.
Acoustic-reflex and simultaneous midplane binaural loudness-balance abnormalities were related to N2 and N3 abnormalities on the brain-stem evoked-response measures. Unilateral abnormalities in low-redundancy speech tests, prolonged auditory reaction times, and reduced loudness growth on the alternate binaural loudness-balance test were related to ipsilateral N4 abnormalities or contralateral N5 abnormalities on the brain-stem evoked-response measures.
