The past decade has brought great advances in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying auditory pathologies. Molecular biology and genetics have primarily contributed to this enhanced understanding, which in turn has driven the design of novel rational therapeutic interventions. Auditory Trauma, Protection and Repair presents recent developments in auditory research and their potential translation to the clinical setting. In particular the authors address the major entities of peripheral auditory trauma, discuss the underlying mechanisms, the central nervous system consequences, protective interventions and finally explore the possibilities to restore cochlear morphology and function. Two themes run through the chapters in this book: cellular homeostasis and cell death. In the broadest sense, all auditory pathologies are disorders of cellular homeostasis.Contents:Auditory Pathology: When Hearing Is Out of Balance Jochen SchachtGenetics of Hearing Loss Ella Shalit and Karen B.
