About the book
The ear or the auditory system is an intricate complex comprised of both peripheral and central parts. Great strides have been made in determining the structure and malfunctions of the auditory system. However, effective treatments of all types of hearing loss and tinnitus, as well as the development of cures need concerted efforts.
The book "Human Auditory System- Function and Disorders" aims to provide an overview of the basic anatomy and physiology of the auditory system. It will focus on both the development and biology of the audition. It will include neuroscience of hearing as well as the associated malfunctions causing hearing loss or tinnitus. Research covering aspects related to the treatment of auditory disorders and the current state of the clinical utility of the offered treatments will also be included.
The work will present significant topics pertinent to the human auditory system and provide both historical and future perspectives. It will be a collaborative endeavour, involving multiple scientists who have presented each topic in a comprehensive but concise way.
