Event Details

Course introduction:
Auditory brainstem response (ABR) or Brainstem Evoked Responses (BSER) is a useful test to estimate auditory threshold and for neurodiagnosis of the auditory nerve. Despite its success, the ABR is considered as a time-consuming procedure due to the need to present thousands of stimuli for signal averaging analysis to improve the ABR signal-to-noise ratio. Substantial studies have been conducted in the literature to improve the quality of the ABR and to optimize its test time. Clinician that conduct ABR on regular basis must be aware of these available techniques to ensure high-efficiency and accuracy of their test findings. In this talk, advanced stimulus and recording techniques in the ABR will be proposed to solve the highlighted problems.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this seminar the participants will be able to:

• Identify the stimulus and recording techniques to improve the ABR signal to noise ratio.
• Identify the stimulus and recording techniques to improve the ABR test time.
• Identify the recording technique to ensure a high level of accuracy for the ABR wave amplitudes analysis.

    PhD

    Dr. Ahmad Aidil Arafat bin Dzulkarnain is Associate Professor at Department of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology, Kulliyyah of Allied Health Sciences, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). He obtained a degree in Bachelor of Audiology with Hons from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in 2003 and received Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) (Audiology) from The University of Queensland, Australia in 2008. He is currently the Deputy Dean of Postgraduate and Research of Kulliyyah of Allied Health Sciences, IIUM. He was the Head of Department of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology of IIUM from 2012-2013. He had been the visiting academic at The University of Queensland, Australia and visiting scientist at National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL), Australia both in 2013-2014 respectively As a scientist, Dr Aidil has substantive research works in the area of auditory neurophysiology specifically in the auditory evoked responses (AER). His recent research is concerning evaluation of sound-cognitive and emotional therapy intervention using AER test among patient with special needs such as autism spectrum disorder and attention deficits hyperactivity disorder. He has authored and presented more than 100 papers in both international, local journals and conferences. Dr Aidil has published several quality papers in prestigious local and international journals and at the same time serves as regular journal peer-reviewers. Due to the recognition in his works especially in the auditory neurophysiology, he has been invited as either keynote or professional trainer by either government or private agencies as well as the audiology professional society in Malaysia. Recently, he has been awarded by IIUM as the most promising academic (Health Sciences) based on his significant contribution to IIUM in general and audiology (in Malaysia) specifically.
