A comprehensive literature review of the Auditory Steady-State Response (ASSR) was performed and an informational website designed for doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) students, recent Au.D. graduates, and audiologists unfamiliar with the current recommended evidence-based ASSR testing protocol was also developed. The ASSR is a unique auditory evoked potential (AEP) that encompasses unique terminology. Topics reported in this literature review include the history of the ASSR and its initial limitations, its neural generators, terminology specific to the ASSR, unique stimuli (sinusoidally amplitude modulated (AM), frequency modulated (FM), mixed modulated (MM), and repeating sequence tones (RSG)), single frequency (SF) and multiple frequency (MF) stimulation techniques, methods for analyzing the ASSR (Phase Coherence and Fast Fourier Transform with F-ratio), recommended recording parameters, the accuracy of behavioral threshold prediction, calibration considerations, and the clinical application of the ASSR. The website is an easily accessible central resource for current evidence-based practices in ASSR testing.
