This book deals with the way that the auditory system processes acoustic
signals. The current edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect the
progress that has been made since the previous edition. Particularly major
updates have been made in the following areas: cochlear function, including
cochlear mechanics, hair cell function and mechanisms of transduction; the
auditory central nervous system, a major area of advance in recent years;
physiological correlates of auditory perception, including speech
perception; and, cochlear pathophysiology and sensorineural hearing loss,
including the restoration of hearing by electrical stimulation of the ear,
and molecular and cellular approaches to hair cell repair, replacement, and
regeneration. A reading scheme has been provided to guide readers to the
section most appropriate for their interests. The book is written so that
those entering auditory research from very little background in auditory
neuroscience are able to understand the current research issues and
research literature.

It is also intended to be a source book and reference work for advanced
undergraduates studying the special senses, and for clinicians in the
speciality of Otorhinolaryngology.It offers a contemporary look at the
physiology of hearing: each chapter has been thoroughly revised. It is an
excellent reading companion to practitioners and scholars. It is also
suitable for those undertaking auditory research. It includes a reading
scheme to guide readers through the book.

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science
