The many different auditory evoked potentials that can be recorded from the human subject provide important clinical information about hearing. At the prsent time the click evoked auditory brainstem reposnses are the most widely used of these potentials. Like all diagnostic tests, these responces have their limitiations. These limitations can be partially circumvented in three ways. First, auditory evoked potentials other than the auditory brainstem reponse can also provide important information. Elecrocochleography can help assess cochlear function, and the middle and late auditory evoked potentials can evaluate the auditory processes such as frequency discimination and localisation. Third, other diagnotic procedures may supplement the information provided by evoked potentials. Otoacoustic emissions should become important in screening for hearing loss. Magnetic resonance imaging can quickly and accurately delineate lesions of the auditory pathway.
