The Hearing Sciences, Third Edition addresses all 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. Basic and intermediate chapters are targeted to undergraduate students. Intermediate and advanced chapters are appropriate for AuD instruction. Advanced chapters summarize key points from introductory chapters, so assignment of those earlier chapters is not required if the student has previously had a survey course in hearing science. Direct relevance to clinical audiology is featured. For example, the text contains comprehensive explanation of the active mechanisms of the cochlea and relates this to otoacoustic emissions and hearing loss. The writing is straightforward and clear. Each chapter includes an introduction, summary, and review questions. "Clinical Correlate" boxes engage the student by demonstrating the relationships between the hearing sciences and clinical audiology. New to the Third Edition: An updated art program with more illustrations and imagesA new chapter on advanced vestibular anatomy and physiology, and thorough updates to the prior vestibular contentContinued attention to conveying information in a straightforward manner while reflecting the current state of researchKey concepts bolded throughout for greater comprehension and accessibilityReview questions added to each chapter to ensure students grasp and retain the information

Respected professor, avid researcher, and prolific author Carole T. Ferrand offers a brand new edition of her widely-read and highly-regarded resource for students and clinicians of the communication sciences and disorders. Speech Science: An Integrated Approach to Theory and Clinical Practice, 3/econtinues to highlight the close relationship between the scientific study of speech production and perception, and the application of this data to the evaluation and treatment of communication disorders. Dr. Ferrand integrates scientific material on the acoustics, anatomy, and physiology of speech production and perception with state-of-the-art instrumental techniques used in clinical practice to create the most comprehensive, detailed approach to the subject. While the focus of the book remains unchanged, the text now features a new re-organization for a greater flow of information, all chapters have been updated with current research, and additional integrative case studies have been included within many of the clinical chapters.

The Auditory Brain and Age-Related Hearing Impairment provides an overview of the interaction between age-related hearing impairments and cognitive brain function. This monograph elucidates the techniques used in the connectome and other brain-network studies based on electrophysiological methods. Discussions of the manifestations of age-related hearing impairment, the causes of degradation of sound processing, compensatory changes in the human brain, and rehabilitation and intervention are included. There is currently a surge in content on aging and hearing loss, the benefits of hearing aids and implants, and the correlation between hearing loss, cognitive decline and early onset of dementia. Given the changing demographics, treatment of age-related hearing impairment need not just be bottom-up (i.e., by amplification and/or cochlear implantation), but also top-down by addressing the impact of the changing brain on communication. The role of age-related capacity for audio-visual integration and its role in assisting treatment have only recently been investigated, thus this area needs more attention. Relates the techniques used in the connectome and other brain-network studies to the human auditory-cortex and age-related hearing loss research findings Examines the side effects of age-related hearing impairment and their impact on the quality of life for the elderly Evaluates the importance of multi-modal means in the rehabilitation of the elderly with hearing aids and cochlear implants Discusses the role of neurostimulation and various training procedures to halt, or potentially reverse, cognitive decline in the elderly
