  • Auditory Brainstem Response

    The auditory brainstem response (ABR) test is frequently used to measure hearing sensitivity and to evaluate the auditory system. The test involved a computer measuring the way a child’s hearing nerve responds to different sounds. Audiologists performed the ABR recordings during both the study and control group. The process involved electrodes being placed typically on a child’s forehead and in front or in back of the ears. The electrodes are connected to the computer, and earphones are placed on the child to help measure the hearing. Each ear was stimulated separately by alternating clicks at a normal hearing level. During the process, the audiologists focus on neurological “markers” as the child’s hearing nerves respond to the sounds. At…

  • Cerebral Palsy Studies

    Once learning the basics about Cerebral Palsy (CP), I chose to dig deeper into the more modern diagnostic tools and treatments. As an aspiring Audiologist, I looked into tools I would one day use if I were on a case with an individual with CP and found an article about the Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) tool that is being used to determine hearing loss and likelihood of other related disabilities in tandem with CP. The study done showed significance in correlation with most other causes of CP…

  • Cochlear Implant Case Study

    months old. A behavioral study is being conducted over three years with ten children under the age of five including Auguste. In order for children to qualify for the ABI device, they must have tried hearing aids and cochlear implant that prove to be ineffective. Some parts of the ABI device on his brainstem consist of a processor with a microphone and transmitter. This is similar to a cochlear implant but an auditory brainstem implant is for people who are considered completely deaf with no…

  • Medullary Respiratory System Essay

    The respiratory system is responsible for the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body to meet metabolic demands. The way a person’s breathe can be affected is by emotions and/or changes in the internal environment. The breathing process is mainly controlled by the brainstem and peripheral system. The brainstem controls several important functions of the body like arousal, breathing, and blood pressure, among other functions. In the brainstem, the medullary respiratory center consists of…

  • Vestibular Disease

    A cat’s vestibular system is crucial because it makes the cat aware that he is turning left or right, walking, running, or facing upside down. On the other hand, a cat develops a condition called vestibular disease when the animal is unable to do body coordination, mainly due to several disorders affecting the vestibular apparatus in the inner ear or brainstem. Most of us would have staggered, lost balance, or tilting to one side for a few seconds when you spun around fast, such as when riding…

  • Jenbrassik Case Study

    from the receptor to the posterior horn of the spinal cord or to the brainstem. The information is then sent to an integrating center in the gray matter of the spinal cord or brainstem. In most reflex arcs, the integrating center includes one or more interneurons. The integrating center then issues the response via the efferent nerve fibers, which carry the response to the effectors which carry out the final response. The reflex pathway and reaction pathway differ in their integrating centers.…
