During the past decades, "Dynamics of the singing voice" has successfully been established as a reference text for teachers of singing, singers, choral conductors and organists, speech and voice therapists, laryngologists and other health professionals, psychologists and those in linguistics. It discusses the physiological, psychological, musical and emotional aspects of the voice, particularly as they relate to singing but also to speaking. The book... more...

The cochlea does not just pick up sound, it also produces sounds of low intensity called Otoacoustic Emissions (OAEs). Sounds produced by healthy ears – either spontaneously or in response to stimuli - allow researchers and clinicians to study hearing and cochlear function noninvasively in both animals and humans. This book presents the first serious review of the biological basis of these otoacoustic emissions.

Acquired aural cholesteatoma poses a unique procedural dilemma with regard to pathogenetic research and theory building. Because cholesteatoma spontane­ ously occurs only in the poorly pneumatized human ear, its pathogenesis is specific to humans. Nonetheless, because of the ethical questions surrounding human experimentation, pathogenetic study has almost exclusively involved nonhuman subjects. Indeed, attempts have failed in almost all animal... more...

by D. Fry
The mechanism of speech is a very complex one and in order to undertake any analysis of language it is important to understand the processes that go to make up the message that a speaker transmits and a listener receives. Professor Fry therefore first takes the reader through the various stages of the speech chain: from language units to nerve impulses to muscle movements to sound waves, and vice versa as the message is received and decoded. He then... more...

The Hearing Sciences, Third Edition addresses all the topics critical to understanding the hearing sciences: acoustics, basic instrumentation, anatomy and physiology of the auditory and vestibular systems, and psychoacoustics. The text is intended for undergraduate courses in hearing science and to augment the graduate AuD curriculum. The writing is straightforward and clear and each chapter includes an introduction, summary, and review... more...


This volume, Computational Models of the Auditory, will have at its unifying theme a systems approach where the focus will be on studies whose intent is to contribute to the big picture of hearing. In effect, the work covered in this volume, and the volume itself, will build a global model of audition. The chapters will, rather than focusing on details of individual components of the hearing system, address the concerns of readers and researchers who... more...

This book, endorsed by the European Laryngological Society, is a comprehensive guide to key topics in neurolaryngology, which enables readers to quickly identify and implement solutions in concrete situations likely to arise in everyday clinical practice. It includes detailed information on conditions such as vocal cord paresis/paralysis, laryngeal dystonia, and upper motor neuron disorders and offers clear advice on imaging and... more...

Understanding tinnitus and treating patients with tinnitus must involve many disciplines of basic science and clinical practice. The book provides comprehensive coverage of a wide range of topics related to tinnitus including its pathophysiology, etiology and treatment. The chapters are written by researchers and clinicians who are active in the areas of basic science such as neurophysiology and neuroanatomy and in clinical specialties of psychology,... more...

Audiology: Science to Practice, Third Edition is a comprehensive and challenging textbook for undergraduate students in audiology and hearing science, for graduate students beginning an AuD program, especially those who may not have a background in the subject, and for other health care professionals who would benefit by a better understanding of hearing science and audiology practices. This textbook is written in a style that tries to make new or... more...
