BAEP

Brainwaves that are produced in response to sounds, i.e., stimulation of the cochlear nerve. Tests of auditory evoked potential are used to determine the threshold of sound required to produce a brainstem response, e.g., in people with hearing loss or brain death.

The severity of the deficit on BAEP was correlated to standardized symptom-reporting from parents/care-takers to determine the degree of agreement between BAEP findings and parental awareness of hearing loss.
Abbreviations: BAEP = brainstem auditory evoked potential, CD = compact disc, CNS = central nervous system, DOCS = Disorders of Consciousness Scale, FAST = Familiar Auditory Sensory Training, fMRI = functional magnetic resonance imaging, LTM = long-term memory, MCS = minimally conscious state, MMN = mismatched negativity, PET = positron emission tomography, RCT = randomized clinical trial, STM = short-term memory, TBI = traumatic brain injury, VA = Department of Veterans Affairs, VS = vegetative state.
The useful clinical information in BAEP resides in the latencies and amplitude of waveforms.
O BAEP pode ser utilizado para avaliar a atividade dos neuronios relacionados a audicao, mas nao pode ser utilizado para comprovar o conceito comportamental de audicao, pois seu perfeito funcionamento necessita da integridade de outras estruturas, alem das avaliadas nesse teste (WILSON & MILLS, 2005).
The recording of BAEP test was performed in the Electrophysiology Laboratory in the DepartmentofPhysiology, Maharishi Markandeshwar Institute of Medical Sciences, Mullana, Ambala, Haryana.
In some studies, increased wave latencies has been observed in subjects aged over 60 years, While others have demonstrated no statistically significant differences in BAEP latency with age.
This differs from the study [31] in which there was a non-significant positive correlation of BAEP latencies with fasting blood glucose levels.
