Auditory Brainstem Responses in the Harbor Porpoise (Phocoena Phocoena)

  • Nikolay G. Bibikov

Abstract

The term “auditory brain stem response (ABR)” usually refers to the microvolt potentials recorded from scalp electrodes in human and animals during the first 6–8 ms following a stimulus. ABRs first were recognized in cats (Jewett, 1970) and later in a variety of other mammals. In dolphins, short latency auditory responses were first observed by Ladygina and Supin (1970) with electrodes located in the brain of the harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena).
