Compression : from cochlea to cochlear implants by Sid P Bacon( )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the main aspects of cochlear compression, including anatomy and physiology; the perceptual consequences of compression in normal hearing; the effects of hearing loss on compression; and its function in hearing aids and cochlear implants. The role of compression has increasing practical significance as it is incorporated into hearing aids and cochlear implants to compensate for inadequate compression in people with cochlear hearing loss

Loudness by Mary Florentine( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topic of loudness is of considerable concern both in and outside of research laboratories. Most people have developed an opinion about some aspect of loudness, and many complain about the loudness of background sounds in their daily environments and their impacts on quality of life. Moreover, such sounds interfere with the ability to hear useful sounds, and such masking can be especially problematic for people with hearing losses, children, older adults, and non-native speakers of a language. At the same time, not all loud sounds are undesirable. Some loud sounds are important for human well-being, such as warning signals, whereas other loud sounds, such as music, can be pleasurable. In fact, loudness is essential for enjoying the dynamics of music. Thus, loudness is a pervasive and complex issue, and one that needs to be examined from a wide range of perspectives, and that is the purpose of this volume. Research in loudness has been performed in many countries, and this volume is an international endeavor with authors from Europe, Japan, and the United States, making the volume an attempt to provide a global network of information about loudness. The editors are very pleased to be able to bring together information on many aspects of loudness in this one volume, as well as to highlight approaches from many different perspectives
Sound source localization by Arthur N Popper( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The localization of sound is a fundamental requirement for all auditory systems and has motivated much research. This comprehensive volume brings together topics from many specialties that have been touched upon in other volumes of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research. Reviewing sound source localization capacities and mechanisms in a variety of organisms, this volume provides a synthesis and update on the topic that is both original and timely. The authors treat sound source localization in a comparative context with an emphasis on modeling and computational mechanisms."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Auditory perception of sound sources by William A Yost( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Auditory Perception of Sound Sources covers higher-level auditory processes that are perceptual processes. The chapters describe how humans and other animals perceive the sounds that they receive from the many sound sources existing in the world. This book will provide an overview of areas of current research involved with understanding how sound-source determination processes operate. This book will focus on psychophysics and perception as well as being relevant to basic auditory research."--Jacket
Fish bioacoustics by Jacqueline F Webb( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of how fish make and respond to sound has important implications for communication, physiology, behavior, and commercial techniques. This new definitive volume on fish auditory systems will interest investigators in both basic research of fish bioacoustics as well as investigators in applied aspects of fisheries and resource management. Topics will cover structure, physiology, localization, and acoustic behavior as well as more applied topics such as using sound to detect and locate fish
Vertebrate hair cells by Ruth Anne Eatock( )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides an overview of the mechanosensory receptor cells of the vertebrate inner ear. Each chapter is written by experimentalists active in exploring a particular set of questions in an aspect of hair cell function, including development, transduction, and synaptic transmission
Active processes and otoacoustic emissions in hearing by Geoffrey A Manley( )

30 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sounds that are actually produced by healthy ears allow researchers and clinicians to study hearing and cochlear function noninvasively in both animals and humans. Active Processes and Otoacoustic Emissions in Hearing presents the first serious review of the biological basis of these otoacoustic emissions. Active processes, such as those in hair cells that produce emissions, represent a burgeoning and important area of sensory research. By providing a basis for understanding how and why otoacoustic emissions testing works through a basic understanding of general hearing processes, this volume will also interest clinicians, particularly otolaryngologists and audiologists.

The middle ear : science, otosurgery, and technology by Sunil Puria( )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The middle ear plays a vital role in the sense and sensitivity of hearing. Of the various characteristics that distinguish mammals from other vertebrates, several pertain specifically to the middle-ear system, such as the presence of three middle-ear bones and the four-layer composite structure of the tympanic membrane. The Middle Ear attempts to elucidate the role this system plays in sound transmission, as viewed from both scientific and clinical perspectives

Auditory and vestibular efferents by David K Ryugo( )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Efferent sensory systems have emerged as major components of processing by the central nervous system. Whereas the afferent sensory systems bring environmental information into the brain, efferent systems function to monitor, sharpen, and attend selectively to certain stimuli while ignoring others. This ability of the brain to implement these functions enables the organism to make fine discriminations and to respond appropriately to environmental conditions so that survival is enhanced. Our focus will be on auditory and vestibular efferents, topics linked together by the inner ear connection
Comparative studies of hearing in vertebrates by Arthur N Popper( Book )

16 editions published in 1980 in English and German and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past two decades have seen an extraordinary growth of interest in the auditory mechanisms of a wide range of vertebrates and invertebrates. Investigations have ranged from auditory mechanisms in relatively simple animals where just a few cells are emƯ ployed for detection of sound, to the highly complex detection and processing systems of man and the other mammals. Of particular significance to us has been the growing interest in general principles of vertebrate auditory system organization, as opposed to a specific and limited concern for the mammalian or even human systems. Some of the interest in nonmammalian systems has risen from the desire to fmd simpler experiƯ mental models for both the essential components (e. g., the hair cell receptor) and the more complex functions (e. g., frequency analysis) of all vertebrate auditory systems. Interest has also risen from questions about the evolution of hearing and the covariation (or lack of it) in structure and function in a wide variety of biological solutions to the problems of acoustic mechanoreception. Of course, the desire to fmd simpler experiƯ mental models and the need to answer questions about the evolution of hearing are not unrelated. In fact, detailed analyses of a variety of systems have led several times to the realization that some of the "simple systems" are more complex than initially thought
