Oxford Handbook of Auditory Science The Ear

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This first volume in The Oxford Handbook of Auditory Science, which covers the ear, serves both as an introduction and as a reference work relating to the auditory periphery. Each article includes a mix of tutorial and advanced information. Throughout the book, the focus is on mechanistic, functional evidence, with many articles concentrating on cellular and molecular explanations of cochlear function. In addition to basic function, the development and regeneration of the inner ear are described, as are the growing body of ear-related genes identified through studies of human deafness and animal mutants. This knowledge is applied to the human condition in descriptions of pathogenic mechanisms, and existing therapies, especially the cochlear implant.
