Physiology of the Ear / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Cengage Learning
At a level for doctoral or medical students in neurosciences, audiology, or physiology, Physiology of the Ear, 2E has brought together in a complete and concise manner a compilation of articles written by experts in their specialty and addressing clinical and basic science aspects of ear physiology. The text begins with a history of the discovery of the anatomy and physiology of the ear and works systematically from the external, middle, and inner ear to the brain. Easy to read and understand, this text can be used as a resource or as a tool for study and review. It covers topics such as sound and bone conduction mechanisms, signal processing, stimulus coding in the auditory system, blood circulation of the cochlea, and auditory brain mapping. It highlights the application of new research findings to the management problems encountered in everyday practice, and covers important aspects of nonauditory physiology such as skin migration in the ear canal.
