Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) Testing

Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) Testing is used to measure the way in which the brain responds to sound, which will provide information used to determine nerve function and estimate hearing sensitivity.

Electrodes are places on the scalp and sounds are presented to each ear through earphones; the client does not have to respond and may simply relax during the test.

This test can be used to assess the hearing of individuals of all ages, including newborns.
