Studies the far-field electroencephalography (EEG) potential evoked by amplitude modulation of acoustic stimuli in adults with developmental dyslexia. Amplitude of the click-evoked auditory brainstem response (ABR); Latency of the amplitude modulation following response or ABR; Reflection of impaired ability of the auditory system to follow rapid changes in stimulus energy.
