Abstract

The monitoring of short-latency auditory (BAER) and somatosensory (SSER) evoked responses were studied extensively in head injury and states of increased intracranial pressure (ICP) (Stone et al. 1988). However, this study is a monkey model of transtentorial brain herniation (TBH) over a four hour period which was developed from our experience with traumatic intracranial hematomas.
