Definitions for "Auditory brainstem response"
An objective technique to evaluate hearing which involves placing electrodes on the head and recording brain wave activity from the brainstem as sounds are presented.
electrical activity stimulated by brief sounds such as clicks, generated by the auditory nerve and brainstem, and recorded from the surface of the ear and forehead. This may also be abbreviated as BSER, BAER. ABR is used to assess hearing sensitivity in babies and children, and to evaluate the neural pathway (from ear to brain) in adults.
