Critical Analysis of Short-Latency Auditory Evoked Potentials Recording Techniques

  • Isao Hashimoto
Part of the Topics in Neurosurgery book series (TINS, volume 2)


The short-latency auditory evoked potentials (SAEPs) are the sum of responses time-locked to high intensity click stimulations occurring within 10 msec. The remarkable stability of the SAEP waveforms and latencies across repeated recording sessions and varying arousal levels suggests that they originate in an extremely secure and highly synchronized generator system. It is hypothesized that synchronized neuronal discharges may summate to produce specific components of the SAEPs. Recording of such discharges in the auditory system from the surface of the scalp would require (1) that a sufficient number of neurons and fibers fire in synchrony, (2) that the neurons and fibers are relatively large and, therefore, the impulse is conducted fast, producing large extracellular potential fields and (3) that individual neurons and fibers have an orderly and parallel arrangement so that individual extracellular fields summate.
