Potentials | Long-Latency Evoked Potentials and Event-Related
Short-latency EPs (brainstem auditory evoked potentials, pattern
visual evoked potentials, brainstem trigeminal nerve stimulation,
motor evoked potentials, and somatosensory evoked potentials) have been
used to investigate mild TBI as well as the postconcussive syndrome
and individual postconcussive symptoms (e.g., dizziness, cognitive
impairment). Many of these studies identify short-latency EP abnormalities
similar to those observed in more severely injured individuals.
Such abnormalities are identified in approximately 10%–30% of
persons with mild TBI.
