This study was performed to investigate in detail the auditory brainstem response (ABR) for intracochlear electrical stimulation. Brainstem response audiometry is a simple, noninvasive procedure with the responses under many stimulus conditions being readily understood in terms of single auditory nerve discharge properties. The amplitude and latency behaviour of the Nl brainstem response correlates well with that recorded directly from the auditory nerve (Huang & Buchwald, 1978). In addition, the brainstem response can be divided into frequency-specific components corresponding to tonotopical locations in the cochlea, as exhibited in the method of derived responses (e.g. Parker &Thornton, 1978). It is therefore well suited to both physiological and clinical investigation of auditory function and therefore should be useful in evaluating auditory function under conditions of electrical stimulation of the cochlea.
