Average Evoked Potentials
In the decade of the 1980s, many clinical EEG laboratories have added average evoked potential studies to their routine procedures. Indeed, short-latency brain-stem auditory-evoked potentials, as well as short- and intermediate-latency cortical-evoked potentials, lately have proved to be valuable clinical tools for objectively testing afferent functions in patients with neurological and sensory disorders. This being the case, there is need for the EEG technician to become familiar with evoked-potential methods and to add a variety of new skills to his or her repertoire. At the same time, the person reading and interpreting the records will find it necessary to deal with concepts and techniques that are markedly different from those encountered in EEG interpretation.
