Hearing is a comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to the perception of sound and its neural basis. Highlights include a special historical review of the field of hearing science, a unique introduction to cochlear mechanics aimed at readers new to this area, an extended treatment of the central, auditory portion of the brain not available in any other textbook, and a rich collection of illustrations emphasizing parallels between the psychology and physiology of sound perception. The ideal teaching tool for courses in contemporary hearing science, this text will also serve as a prototype for the study of other sensory systems.

"Gives comprehensive coverage from peripheral biophysics to sensation. It is scholarly, with an unashamed tutorial emphasis that should please its intended readership of maturing undergraduates and aspiring neuroscientists." --Nature "The fundamental aspects of physical acoustics, auditory physiology, the central auditory nervous system, psychoacoustics, and relevant pathologic conditions are examined in this comprehensive introductory text. Historical perspectives. . . . make this volume especially well-suited for teaching purposes. Especially noteworthy is the creative and artistic use of illustrations to emphasize parallels between the psychology and physiology of sound perception. " --Ear and Hearing "Hearing is a comprehensive text reviewing many topics in hearing science with an emphasis on technical detail. It would be a useful text for the graduate student or as a reference for the hearing professional." --Hearing Rehabilitation Quarterly "Gives comprehensive coverage from peripheral biophysics to sensation.
