This book presents an excellent introduction to theoretical issues, methodological considerations, and clinical applications of the auditory nerve (AP) and auditory brain-stem response (ABR). It is a 160-page paperback from the Fundamentals of Communication Science Series, and it is packed with useful, relevant, and clearly stated information. Any student, audiologist, resident, physician, or other practitioner will find this book extremely useful for developing a basic understanding of ABR principles as well as providing a good foundation for pursuing more advanced aspects of auditory evoked potentials.

The book begins with a concise account of cochlear potentials and mechanisms relevant to the generation of the AP and ABR. An overview of methodological considerations is then presented, including nice descriptions of differential preamplifiers, types of stimuli, and filtering. The next two chapters cover descriptions of normal and clinical applications of the AP response in humans. The final two chapters cover normal descriptions of
