Abstract

Among the brainstem reflexes, the electrically evoked blink reflex isnow established as a routine diagnostic parameter. Utilising the visual and acoustic afferents did not yield substantial additional information, so that the evoked potentials (i.e. VEP and BAEP) remain the diagnostic tools of first choice. Interesting new results have been worked out concerning the recovery index of the R2 blink response in movement disorders. The R1 component is highly useful in localising lesions. On the other hand, to date the masseter reflex is used by only a small number of physicians although its efficacy in respect of localisation is superior to the blink reflex in several aspects. Functional disturbances are more clearly indicated by reflex abnormalities as comparedto imaging studies. Reflex investigations are particularly useful in follow-up studies and can be applied repeatedly. There are special conditions, such as 3rd nerve palsy, in which brainstem reflex studies are strongly indicated.
