“This is a very good textbook on the neurophysiology of speech, hearing, understanding, & communication. The book spans clinical development of hearing from childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and aging in human and animals experimental subjects. … The book will be benefit auditory therapists, audiologists, speech and language therapists, and hearing researchers at all levels.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2018)
From the Back Cover
This volume will cover a variety of topics, including child language development; hearing loss; listening in noise; statistical learning; poverty; auditory processing disorder; cochlear neuropathy; attention; and aging. It will appeal broadly to auditory scientists―and in fact, any scientist interested in the biology of human communication and learning. The range of the book highlights the interdisciplinary series of questions that are pursued using the auditory frequency-following response and will accordingly attract a wide and diverse readership, while remaining a lasting resource for the field.
About the Author
Nina Kraus has innovated the use of FFR as a measure of human communication skills, life experience, and auditory learning and memory. She is a senior scholar in the field and brings over 30 years’ experience pursuing basic and translational questions in auditory neuroscience. Samira Anderson is a scientist-clinician who brings 25 years’ experience in the clinic and as a young investigator has made major contributions to the understanding of central auditory processing, with a particular emphasis on neuroplasticity and aging/hearing loss. Travis White-Schwoch is a member of the Kraus laboratory with extensive experience in FFR theory and technology, and developmental changes in auditory processing. The editorial team has a strong history of collaboration, and together they bring unique knowledge to the book. Arthur N. Popper is Professor in the Department of Biology and Co-Director of the Center for Comparative and Evolutionary Biology of Hearing at the University of Maryland, College Park. Richard R. Fay is Distinguished Research Professor of Psychology at Loyola University Chicago.
