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."--BOOK JACKET
Loudness by Mary Florentine( )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 551 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

Fish bioacoustics by Jacqueline F Webb( )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 524 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 volume explores how fish detect and process signals. It demonstrates how bioacoustics is used to understand and affect fish behavior
Music perception by Mari Riess Jones( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing prevalence of musical stimulation in our everyday environment makes studies of musical listening, comprehension and memory important. Music has simply become a pervasive aspect of the experienced environment for most of us; along with enhanced levels of machine sounds, musical sound sources are contributing to a virtual transformation of contemporary soundscapes occurring in many industrial countries. In spite of such trends, arguably the mainstream research in psychology and related fields has been slow to devote concentrated attention to this phenomenon and what it might mean
Auditory trauma, protection, and repair by Jochen Schacht( )

16 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents developments in auditory research and their potential applications in clinical settings. This book addresses the major dynamics of peripheral auditory trauma, including the underlying mechanisms, consequences to the central nervous system, protective interventions, and the possibility of restoring cochlear morphology and function
Active processes and otoacoustic emissions in hearing by Geoffrey A Manley( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auditory and vestibular efferents by David K Ryugo( )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 442 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
The middle ear : science, otosurgery, and technology by Sunil Puria( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 440 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
Comparative studies of hearing in vertebrates by Arthur N Popper( Book )

15 editions published in 1980 in English and German and held by 427 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
