The Hearing Sciences: Second Edition

Plural Publishing

The Hearing Sciences, Second Edition addresses all the topics critical to understanding the hearing sciences: acoustics, anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, psychoacoustics, and basic instrumentation.

Written in a straightforward approach, each chapter opens with an introduction of the key concepts and ends with a concise summary. The practical nature of the book is demonstrated in the "Clinical Correlates'' examples, which relate elements of the hearing sciences to patient care and engage students in the concepts.

The textbook is designed for undergraduate students--the more advanced chapters are useful supplementary material in graduate audiology programs--but through this book, students will gain invaluable insight into the hearing sciences before ever taking a course in audiology.

New to this edition:

New and improved illustrationsUpdated information on cochlear physiology

About the author

Teri A. Hamill, PhD, is professor of audiology at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she teaches AuD students. She has been a professor for nearly 25 years and also has worked clinically in a hospital setting. Dr. Hamill developed an interest in digital signal processing and instrumentation circa 1988 during her post-doctoral work with a company that created a (commercially unsuccessful) digital hearing aid. (The processor was the size of a cigarette pack.) She teaches courses in basic sciences, research methodology, and electrophysiology. Dr. Hamill provides content forincluding review tutorials for text chapters. On vacations, she sails the waters of south Florida and the Bahamas on a lovely 38-foot sailboat, which is “older than her students.”

Lloyd L. Price, PhD, is professor emeritus of audiology from Florida State University. He taught for more than 30 years and was Dr. Hamill's professor during her doctoral studies at Florida State University. In addition, his clinical background spanned more than nine years. Dr. Price drafted early versions of this text for use in his undergraduate classes, and sought to present hearing science information in an interesting and straight-forward manner. Now retired, Dr. Price and his wife live in Havana, Florida and travel, primarily to Europe.
