Ebooks

Chermak and Musiek's two-volume, award-winning handbooks are back in newly revised editions. Extensively revised and expanded, Volume I provides comprehensive coverage of the auditory neuroscience and clinical science needed to accurately diagnose the range of developmental and acquired central auditory processing disorders in children, adults, and older adults.

Building on the excellence achieved with the best-selling 1st editions which earned the 2007 Speech, Language, and Hearing Book of the Year Award, the second editions include contributions from world-renowned authors detailing major advances in auditory neuroscience and cognitive science; diagnosis; best practice intervention strategies in clinical and school settings; as well as emerging and future directions in diagnosis and intervention.

Exciting new chapters for Volume II include:

Development of the Central Auditory Nervous System, by Jos J. EggermontCausation: Neuroanatomic Abnormalities, Neurological Disorders, and Neuromaturational Delays, by Gail D. Chermak and Frank E. MusiekCentral Auditory Processing As Seen From Dichotic Listening Studies, by Kenneth Hugdahl and Turid HellandAuditory Processing (Disorder): An Intersection of Cognitive, Sensory, and Reward Circuits, by Karen Banai and Nina KrausClinical and Research Issues in CAPD, by Jeffrey Weihing, Teri James Bellis, Gail D. Chermak, and Frank E. MusiekPrimer on Clinical Decision Analysis, by Jeffrey Weihing and Sam AtchersonCase Studies, by Annette E. HurleyThe CANS and CAPD: What We Know and What We Need to Learn, by Dennis P. Phillips

 

Basic Fundamentals in Hearing Science is a practical textbook written primarily for college undergraduates preparing for graduate programs in speech-language pathology or audiology.

Using Newtonian physics, the authors present a novel approach to the subject of hearing science, enabling students to develop their understanding of the subject while building their knowledge of scientific concepts as they move through the text. Students progress from the basics to more difficult concepts in a graduated process. The text encourages thinking and problem solving rather than learning by rote memorization and clarifies obscure concepts in a writing style that promotes greater understanding and comprehension. Pedagogical elements include key terms listed for each chapter, bulleted chapter summaries, and review questions. For undergraduate hearing science students without hard science backgrounds, this text aims to decompress and facilitate the comprehension of difficult and often cumbersome concepts in order to master the basic concepts in hearing science.

This textbook is also a useful supplemental or recommended reference for speech and hearing combined courses that require more coverage of hearing science than currently available in speech-oriented textbooks.

Key features:

An extensive number of figures and illustrations for improved overall comprehension of the subject matterClear descriptions of the many and various forms of sound wave phenomenon, and of auditory anatomy and physiology--from the outer ear to the auditory cortexAn overview of scientific measurement scales and notation including the use of logarithms, exponential and scientific notation, and the metric systemAn opening chapter that defines and elucidates the meaning, practice, and philosophy of science--with an emphasis on theory-driven research--including a practical guide for the writing of a scientific manuscriptChapters devoted to the basic terminology used in hearing science and the application of those basic principles and terms, as well as a chapter that addresses basic nervous system terminology and describes the structure and function of the twelve pairs of cranial nervesA chapter that deals exclusively with the structure and function of the auditory system

This updated, second edition of The Auditory System: Anatomy, Physiology, and Clinical Correlates remains an essential text for audiology students and clinicians. The text is designed to provide comprehensive coverage of the anatomy and physiology of the central and peripheral auditory systems. Readers will benefit from the important link between science and clinical practice, with integrated clinical correlates found in each chapter.

Key Features:

Presents balanced coverage of both the peripheral and central auditory systemsIntegrated clinical correlates establish the link between science and practiceSubstantial use of review articles and secondary sources enhances general understandingNumerous anatomical sketches and photographs supplement learning


New to this Edition:

A newly designed color interior and many full color images provide increased readabilityA new chapter providing an overview of normal development of the auditory system, plasticity of the central auditory system, and aging effects on the peripheral and central auditory systemsA number of new illustrationsNew and updated information on synaptic ribbons, neuropharmacology of cochlear function, cryoloop cooling, and the vascular network of the brainstemUpdated references, review articles, and readings
The Auditory System: Anatomy, Physiology, and Clinical Correlates, Second Edition is an essential text for graduate programs in audiology and a valuable reference for audiologists at any stage of their career.
