Auditory Steady State Response

This test is similar to an ABR test. It does not require any behavioral response from the individual. This test provides the audiologist with more frequency specific information than we are able to obtain from an ABR. This allows us to better estimate the audiogram, thus enabling us to program and fit hearing aids based on the frequency information. To obtain results small sticker electrodes are placed behind each ear and on the forehead. The electrodes do not administer any shocks; they simply pick up the natural electricity given off by the brain.
