Abstract

Binaural interaction (BI) in auditory brainstem responses (ABR's) has been demonstrated recently in cats [Huang and Buchwald, Electroencephalogr. Clin. Neurophysiol. 44, 179–186 (1978)], guinea pigs [Dobie and Berlin, Arch. Otolaryngol. 105, 391–398 (1979)], and humans [Dobie and Norton, Electroencephalogr. Clin. Neurophysiol. 49, 303–313 (1980)]. Decker and Howe [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 69, 1084–1090 (1981)] have suggested certain modifications of the usual experimental paradigm and a new interpretation for BI in ABR. The intent of this letter is to discuss both their methods, which I believe are inappropriate, and their theory which, while it is not supported by their data, should be further investigated.
