The 40 Hz AEP is recorded using a bandwidth of __ - ___ Hz 10, 100
The 40 Hz AEP has a threshold of about __ dB above hearing threshold during wakefulness, and may be used to test pips of a wide range of tonal frequencies (including low frequencies) 35
Myogenic potentials are __ (more/less) likely to interfere with LLAEPs than with MLAEPs less
Stimuli for LLAEPs consist of tone bursts from __ to ___ Hz 250, 2000
To avoid generating a response from the onset of the tone, the tone burst sof LLAEPs are given a gradual onset of __ - __ msec and a plateau of __ - __ msec 25, 50, 30, 50
Stimuli for an LLAEP are repeated a a frequency of __ - __ per second 0.5, 2
The three ways that LLAEP can also be elicited besides repeating a stimuli are by changes in tone __, __ and apparent ___ frequency, intensity, location
Bandwidth for LLAEPs is usually between __ and __ Hz, although a narrower band of __ - __ Hz can be used 0.2, 100, 2, 15
An average of __ - __ responses is typically used for LLAEPs 30, 100
The normal response for a LLAEP consists first of a peak, __, at __ - __ msec P1, 50, 70
The second peak on a LLAEP, __, occurs at __ - __ msec N1, 100, 150

A third positive peak, __, occurs on an LLAEP at __ msec P300, 300
The amplitude of the LLAEP __ (increases, decreases) and its latency __ (increases, decreases) as stimulus rate increases decreases, increases
The amplitude of the LLAEP __ (increases, decreases) and its latency __ (increases, decreases) as stimulus rise time increases decreases, increases
The amplitude of the LLAEP __ (increases, decreases) and its latency __ (increases, decreases) as stimulus duration increases increases, decreases
The amplitude of the LLAEP __ (increases, decreases) and its latency __ (increases, decreases) as stimulus intensity increases, although this ultimately reaches a plateau, above which increasing intensity causes a __ in amplitude increases, decreases, decrease
LLAEPs are maximal at the __ (orbit / forehead / vertex / temporal lobe) vertex
Temporoparietal lesions most commonly result in defects in the __ wave of LLAEPs N1
Increased __ in LLAEPs has been reported in friedrich's ataxia latency
The three components of ECochG auditory nerve potential, cochlear microphonic potential, summating potential
The abbreviation for the auditory nerve potential NAP
THe __ component of the ECochG is the same regardless of the polarity of clicks used NAP
The __ potential of the ECochG changes in response to the stimulus used cochlear microphonic
The two aspects of the NAP that may be altered in response to changing the polarity of clicks latency, shape
SP in ECochG is isolated by using a high frequency filter of < __ Hz of by stimulating at rates of __ to __ 100, 125, 250
At rates of __ - __ per second, the NAP is largely eliminated from the ECochG, but the summating potential is largely unaffected 125, 250
Stimulating at rates of 125 - 250 per second elminates the __ potential from the ECochG nerve action
The NAP has a latency of _ - __ msec if a stimuluis is 60 - 90 dB above threshold and __ - __ msec if it is near threshold 1, 2, 4, 6
