About the book

The main objective of the present volume is to diffuse the latest information related to the Auditory Hearing system from the periphery to the Auditory cortex with a strong emphasis on the Vestibular system and the various types of hearing problems associated with otolith dysfunction. The sections will include material on the current hearing assessment protocols and technologies. Sections of the book are also dedicated to hearing loss, imbalance in the elderly, hearing restoration strategies (old & novel) including cochlear implants and hearing aids.

The book has been edited with a strong educational perspective (all chapters include an extensive introduction to their corresponding topic and an extensive glossary of terms). The book will contain material suitable for Graduate students in Audiology, ENT, Hearing Science, and Neuroscience.
