Abstract

Brain stem potentials were recorded from scalp electrode to biphasic square wave electrical stimulation of implanted electrodes in the cochlea of three patients. Reliable potentials could be recorded that appeared 1.5 to 2.0 msec prior to the customary acoustically-evoked brain stem potentials. The effects of variations in electrical stimulus parameters of rate and intensity were measured. Brain stem potentials can provide objective indices of the effectiveness of electrical stimulation of the cochlea in man.
