Mini Module - Audiology Potpourri
Instructional Level: Intermediate
The postoperative auditory and speech performance in children with WML was highly related to the WML grading. The severer the lesions showed, the worse the auditory and speech rehabilitation presented.
With the severity of WML increasing, the grand N1 amplitudes in auditory ERPs were becoming significantly smaller.
Dominant auditory center was more likely activated in control or mild WML groups. When the WML became much severer, the non-dominant areas close to auditory cortex, like inferior temporal lobes, were activated.
