The first anatomy and physiology text just for audiologists, this new text brings together some of the best professional minds in the field to consider the structures and mechanisms of the auditory system. Basic science is covered in the foundations section of the text, giving a much needed examination of the biological processes in terms the audiologist needs most. Detailed examination of the anatomy and physiology of hearing follows with diagrams and in-depth discussions. The text concludes with chapters on the pathology of hearing, covering the different causes of hearing loss, from noise-induced hearing loss to genetic aspects of hearing loss. From start to finish this text is written specifically for the audiologist, making it an essential foundational resource.
