1.  Which of the following is an advantage of measuring auditory processing neurophysiologically with the FFR?

  2. It requires only light sedation
  3. It is non-invasive
  4. It is unaffected by learning and experience
2.  Which of the following hearing functions does not typically show disruption following a concussion?
  1. Otoacoustic emissions

  1. The auditory system has one long, top-down pathway that originates in the executive system and terminates at the primary afferents, but without ascending connections.
  2. The auditory system has one long, bottom-up pathway that originates at the primary afferents and terminates in the executive system, but without descending connections.
  3. The nuclei of the auditory system are highly interconnected by both bottom-up and top-down projections and are linked to other systems, including the executive system.
  4. None of the above
4.  Which of the following would NOT be an appropriate recommendation for a child diagnosed with a concussion?
