Over the last decade, there has been a revolution in our understanding of the physiological role of the cochlea, and the mechanisms of cochlear hearing loss, the most common type of hearing loss in adults. This book is the first book covering this topic and aimed at the student and researcherworking in the fields of psychophysics, audiology, and signal processing; the book covers the design of signal processing hearing aids. Readers in the field of auditory rehabilitation and its technology will also find this book very useful.
B. C. J. Moore is at University of Cambridge.

From Our Editors

The main goal is to convey a general understanding of the perceptual changes associated with cochlear hearing loss, and of the difficulties faced by the hearing impaired person. The reader should come away with a impression not only of what happens, but also of why it happens.

Editorial Reviews

`a characteristically comprehensive and sure-footed contribution from the pen of Brian Moore ... It forms an exemplary addition to the Oxford psychology series ... The bulk of the volume deals in valuable detail with the main essential aspects of hearing affected by cochlear impairment ...this must be the most comprehensive and up to date review available of the perceptual consequences of cochlear hearing impairment ... It should be on the shelf of every professional in the field of hearing impairment who wants a critical outlook on the field.'E F Evans, Keele University, British Journal of Audiology
