Highlights and Features—
- A chapter of laboratory exercises offers the student hands-on experiences that transform the academic lessons of the didactic chapters into laboratory and clinical competencies.
- Detailed reviews of auditory and non-auditory evoked potentials are complemented by chapters designed to highlight clinical applications.
- Case studies illuminate the complexities of clinical decision making.
- Eight-page, full-color insert includes 3D images that arise from multi-channel evoked potential studies and functional imaging modalities.
- Myth/Reality boxes shed light on misunderstood and sometimes contentious issues.
- Chapters on myogenic, somatosensory, visual, and vestibular evoked potentials provide the basic information needed for the clinical electrophysiologist who performs multimodality evoked potential services.
- Key terms introduce the vocabulary needed to understand the central concepts
of each chapter.
Executive summary concludes each chapter with a review of main points to remember.
From theory to basic science to clinical applications, this book is truly a comprehensive treatise on auditory evoked potentials.
