Scientific Foundations of Audiology: Perspectives from Physics, Biology, Modeling, and Medicine by Anthony T. Cacace and Emile de Kleine
English | 2016 | ISBN: 1597566527 | 380 pages | PDF | 15,4 MB

With advancements across various scientific and medical fields, professionals in audiology are in a unique position to integrate cutting-edge technology with real-world situations. Scientific Foundations of Audiology provides a strong basis and philosophical framework for understanding various domains of hearing science in the context of contemporary developments in genetics, gene expression, bioengineering, neuroimaging, neurochemistry, cochlear and mid-brain implants, associated speech processing and understanding, molecular biology, physics, modeling, medicine, and clinical practice.
Key features of this text include:

Highly technical information presented in a cohesive and understandable manner (i.e., concepts without complex equations)
Discussion of integrating newly developed technology within the clinical practice of audiology
State-of-the-art contributions from a stellar array of international, world-class experts

Scientific Foundations of Audiology is geared toward doctoral students in audiology, physics, and engineering; residents in otolaryngology, neurology, neurosurgery, and pediatrics; and those intermediaries between innovation and clinical reality.
