Auditory brainstem responses (ABR) or brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) are early – short-latency – EEG components, evoked by acoustical stimulation. The name refers to the generators: these components are mainly – however not exclusively – originated from the brainstem, relatively far away from the EEG electrodes. Furthermore the ABRs are characterized by small amplitude – below 1 µV – and short latency – five to seven peaks within 10 ms.
