What is VER?
Visual Evoked Potential Testing

The VER is used to test the function of the specific sensory systems and their brain connections.
VER testing involves EEG Recording along with different types of stimulation. Visual Evoked Responses (VERs) test the visual systems. You will look at the checkerboard patterns on a TV screen during recording brainwaves.
What is BAER?
Brainstem Auditory Evoked Response (BAER) Test

A BAER is a medical test that evaluates the integrity of your nerve pathway from the ear to the brain. This test may help uncover the cause of a hearing or balance problem, along with other symptoms.
What is the procedure for a BAER?
– You will lie on an exam table in a comfortable position. The more relaxed you are, the more
successful the test (you may even sleep).
– Several surface electrodes are attached to your scalp and ears. They are attached with an adhesive
paste that washes off easily.
– Earphones are placed over your ears to deliver the stimulus (clicks or tones). The stimulus is usually
given to one ear at a time.
– A computer records the results as your brain responds to the stimulus
What is SSEP?
Somatosensory Evoked Potential Test (SEP or SSEP)

SSEPs are used to test the function of the specific sensory systems and their brain connections. SSEPs
involve EEG Recording along with different types of stimulation. Somatosensory Evoked Potential Test (SEP) an SEP test studies the relay of body sensations to your brain and how the brain receives those sensations. A stimulating electrode is placed on your arm or leg,
and it generates an electrical signal. Recording electrodes are placed on your head and/or spine
