Abstract: Survey of current research in the clinical field of central auditory
dysfunctions reveals a significant preference of assessment techniques (esp.
evoked potentials) compared to controlled therapeutic trials. Many studies
apply high complex designs but are lacking implications for therapeutic
planning.Despite this fact basic experimental neuropsychology developed in the
last years via neglect-research a more sophisticated view to recognition (WHAT)
and processing of spatial dimension (WHERE). In few cases, where treatment is
described in detail, the studies offer little statistically controlled efficacy
data and they leave doubts concerning a valid specific treatment effect caused
by therapy of central auditory disorders performed by training programms.
Results of localization performance in ADD/ADHD-patients are presented and
