Overview

The Sringer Series in Auditory Research presents a series of comprehensive and synthetic reviews of the fundamental to-pics in modern auditory research. It is aimed at all indivi-duals with interests in hearing research including advancedgraduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and clinicalinvestigators. The volume will introduce new investigatorsto important aspects of hearing sience and help establishinvestigators understand the fundamental theories and datain fields of hearing. Each volume is intended to present aparticular topic comprehensively, and each chapter willserve as a sythetic overview and guide to the literature.The series focusses on topics that have developed asoliddata and conceptual foundation rather than on those forwhich a literature is only beginning to develop. New re-search areas will be covered on a timely basis in the seriesas they begin to mature. Each volumein the series consistsof five to eight substantial chapters on a particulartopic.In some cases, the topics will be of traditional interestfor which there is a solid body of data and theory, such asauditory neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. Other volumes inthe series will deal withtopics which have begun to maturemore recently, such as development, plasticity, and compu-tational models of neural processing. In many cases, theseries editors will be joined by a co-editor having specialexpertise in the topic of the volume.
