Overview

Cochlear implants are currently the standard treatment for profound sensorineural hearing loss. In the last decade, advances in auditory science and technology have not only greatly expanded the utility of electric stimulation to other parts of the auditory nervous system in addition to the cochlea, but have also demonstrated drastic changes in the brain in responses to electric stimulation, including changes in language development and music perception. Auditory Prostheses: New Horizons examines a range of current issues that concern complex processing of sounds by the prosthetic device users.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Inna Athar Husain, M.D.(Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: Part of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research series that provides reviews on topics in modern auditory research, this volume expands upon a 2004 book and focuses on various auditory prostheses options including cochlear implants, middle ear implants, and central nervous system implants. Each chapter provides insight into an application of an auditory prosthetic device.
Purpose: The purpose is to serve as a review of topics pertaining to auditory prosthetic devices by examining the existing fundamental theories and data available in the field.
Audience: It is written for individuals interested in hearing research, particularly graduate students and clinical investigators. Each chapter is written by an expert in that field.
Features: This volume addresses applications pertaining to auditory prosthetic devices as well as outcomes and issues pertaining to their use. It provides review chapters on cochlear implants (issues on bilateral implantation, music perception, and tonal language perception) and works its way up the implant hierarchy to the central nervous system implants such as the cochlear nucleus auditory prosthesis and midbrain auditory prosthesis. The chapters provide evidence-based data and include sufficient diagrams/charts to stress important points.
Assessment: This volume expands on one published seven years ago, covering advances in hearing research and the use of auditory prosthetic devices that have occurred since then. It provides evidence-based data, making it very useful to researchers in the hearing sciences.
