The auditory system is an interactive system with vast networks of ascending and descending connections. The auditory midbrain is a hub of this network, and measurements of its neural processing represent a rich source of information. The FFR (frequency-following response)

  1. faithfully processes auditory signals, resulting in a transparent response that maintains a high fidelity to the evoking sound
  2. as part of the interactive auditory system, responses reflect experience and training
  3. is meaningful in individuals
