Over the past 25 years researchers and clinicians have taken auditory steady-state response (ASSR) from the periphery to mainstream auditory science and thereby to a foundation of clinical practice. In these 15 articles editor Rance (otolaryngology, U. of Melbourne) and his contributors describe the history of this approach and introduce the technical principles, explain the stimulus-response relationship in ASSR testing, and detail the neural generators of ASSR. They describe the variables inherent in ASSR testing (state, anesthesia, age and attention), clinical applications, behavioral threshold estimation, the 80-Hz ASSR compared with other auditory evoked potentials, ASSR in neonates and infants, and ASSR applications in hearing screening, bone conduction, super-threshold tests, hearing device fitting, and cochlear implants. The collection includes a review of case studies and a summary of future directions.
