The Reliability of Electrodermal Audiometry with Aphasic Adults Forty hospitalized male aphasic subjects were tested to determine if electrodermal audiometry would yield more reliable auditory thresholds than Standard pure-tone tests. Each subject received a Standard pure-tone test to establish thresholds at 1,000 and 2,000 Hz in both ears, an EDR threshold measure of the same frequencies, and two ... Research Article

Forty hospitalized male aphasic subjects were tested to determine if electrodermal audiometry would yield more reliable auditory thresholds than Standard pure-tone tests. Each subject received a Standard pure-tone test to establish thresholds at 1,000 and 2,000 Hz in both ears, an EDR threshold measure of the same frequencies, and two exact replications of both tests, adminstered one to four weeks later. The data suggest that EDR audiometry can be reliably applied to aphasic males.
