Evoked Responses to Auditory Stimuli in Man Using a Summing Computer A special purpose analog computer system was used to measure evoked auditory responses in children and adults. The responses were studied as a function of stimulus intensity, electrode placement, monaural-binaural stimulus presentation, and stimulus repetition rate. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the use of a summing computer ... Research Article

A special purpose analog computer system was used to measure evoked auditory responses in children and adults. The responses were studied as a function of stimulus intensity, electrode placement, monaural-binaural stimulus presentation, and stimulus repetition rate. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the use of a summing computer system as a device to assess hearing in children and adults. Consistent evoked responses were obtained near threshold levels. Evoked response patterns vary in different age groups, and the pattern is modified by changes in stimulus parameter and electrode placement. Results suggest that a summing computer may hold real promise as a tool for providing information concerning auditory function.
