This book describes the embryonic development of the vertebrate inner ear in six chapters that span all aspects of inner ear development, from the induction of the otic placode through cellular morphogenesis, to the onset of auditory function. In each chapter, a particular aspect of development of the inner ear is examined in terms of both classic embryologic experiments and more recent advances using molecular biological techniques.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Since I was committed to writing several comprehensive reviews about ear development, I had anticipated that the book would be of a great help in these endeavors and I was not disappointed. Typical of this series, the seven chapters are authoritative, thoughtful, and timely treatises … . there remains ample need for the deeper and more scholarly full-length treatises offered here. My looming sense of despair about ever staying abreast of the literature … has been mollified … through the valiant efforts of these authors." (Donna M-Fekete, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 81, December, 2006)

"This book presents a highly detailed and up-to-date report of the state of experimental embryology of the vertebrate inner ear. … Descriptive micrographs and illustrations are excellent and add much to the text. This book will be of great value to scientists and students working in the disciplines associated with development of the inner ear." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, Vol. 29, April, 2008)
