Contents Origins of evoked potentials -- Development and brainstem responses (ABRs) -- Auditory nerve lesions -- Brainstem and midbrain lesions -- Unilateral auditory radiation and/or auditory cortex lesions and perception -- Bilateral auditory cortex and/or auditory radiation lesion and perception -- Auditory agnosia in children -- Auditory cortex lesion and sound lateralization: interaural time difference versus the interaural intensity difference -- Corpus callosum lesions
Summary Brain imaging and neurophysiological methods have been rapidly developed. The purpose of this book is to describe hearing problems which are caused by various kinds of brain diseases in central auditory pathway. Each topic is explained to use a lot of figures such as brain imaging and neurophysiological data comparing with neuropsychological tests. Readers will understand what happens in patients, when bilateral auditory nerve and auditory cortex are damaged in patients. Some patients can hear but cannot discriminate meanings of speech, music and environmental sounds. The author tries to explain why such a difference occurs
