During the past 15 years there has been a resurgence of interest in the use of cortical auditory evoked potentials (CAEP) for audiologic applications. Of course, CAEPs were the first of the auditory evoked potentials to be used in the audiometric applications in the early 1960s and continuing into the 1970s. Their use in audiometry was eclipsed by the auditory brainstem response (ABR) from the mid-1970s until today, although they have continued to be used in clinical psychology. Reemergence of interest in CAEPs was perhaps jump-started by those seeking to use the obligatory CAEP to monitor stimulus change and the mismatch negativity (MMN) as a measure of speech-sound discrimination. Although MMN does not have robust enough properties to be used for diagnostic testing for individual patients/subjects, research with MMN helped us become reacquainted with some properties of the CAEPs that could be exploited in the clinical domain.
