Wave II originates from cochlear nucleus, Wave III from superior olivary nucleus, Wave IV from lateral lemniscus, and Wave V from inferior colliculi in the midbrain.
Wave I is produced by the acoustic nerve activity that wave II can reflect the activity of the cochlear nucleus with a contribution from the auditory nerve, that Wave III can be referred to the generators in the superior olivary complex and the lateral leminiscii, that the wave IV-V complex is generated in the axons and/or nuclei of the lateral leminiscii and probably also from inferior colliculi.
