Overview

From well-known author, Frank Musiek, comes a new text designed to aid audiology students through the clinical portion of their experience.

The Auditory System: Anatomy, Physiology, and Clinical Correlates takes an easy-to-understand approach to anatomy and physiology of the auditory system.

Balanced coverage of peripheral and central auditory systems increase the readers’ appreciation of the entire auditory system. Chapter 1 provides a quick reference and overview to the entire text. Integrated clinical correlates for anatomical and physiological information provide clinical relevance. Generous use of review articles and secondary sources enhances general understanding of the subject and a balanced mixture of anatomical sketches and photographs facilitates learning.
