Hearing is a comprehensive, up-to-date introduction to the perception of sound and its neural basis. Highlights include a special historical review of the field of hearing science, a unique introduction to cochlear mechanics aimed at readers new to this area, an extended treatment of the central, auditory portion of the brain not available in any other textbook, and a rich collection of illustrations emphasizing parallels between the psychology and physiology of sound perception. The ideal teaching tool for courses in contemporary hearing science, this text will also serve as a prototype for the study of other sensory systems.
W. Lawrence Gulick is at University of Delaware. George A. Gescheider is at Hamilton College.
