This tutorial describes some of the stimulus choices available to clinicians performing ABR evaluations. The motivation for choosing particular stimuli is described in relation to the clinical question being asked. Thus, emphasis is directed toward the rationales for choosing different stimuli. Data are reviewed only briefly to illustrate these rationales. Finally, some effort has been made to relate clinical ABR results for certain stimulus conditions to underlying physiological processes in the hope that these discussions will lead to a more complete understanding of the stimulus-response relation.
