  • The Lateral Line Systemby Sheryl Coombs; Horst Bleckmann; Richard R. Fay; Arthur N. Popper

    Springer 2013; US$ 139.00

    The Lateral Line System provides an overview of the key concepts and issues surrounding the development, evolution, neurobiology, and function of the lateral line, a fascinating yet somewhat enigmatic flow-sensing system. The book examines the historical precedence for linking the auditory and lateral line systems, its structure and development, use... more...

  • Sound Source Localizationby Arthur N. Popper; Richard R. Fay

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 199.00

    The localization of sound is a fundamental requirement for all auditory systems and has motivated much research. Reviewing sound source localization capacities and mechanisms in a variety of organisms, this volume provides a synthesis on the topic, sound source localization, with an emphasis on modeling and computational mechanisms. more...

  • Auditory Trauma, Protection and Repairby Jochen Schacht; Arthur N. Popper; Richard R. Fay

    Springer 2008; US$ 149.00

    Presents developments in auditory research and their potential applications in clinical settings. This book addresses the major dynamics of peripheral auditory trauma, including the underlying mechanisms, consequences to the central nervous system, protective interventions, and the possibility of restoring cochlear morphology and function. more...

  • Human Auditory Developmentby Lynne Werner; Richard R. Fay; Arthur N. Popper

    Springer 2011; US$ 139.00

    This volume will provide an important contemporary reference on hearing development and will lead to new ways of thinking about hearing in children and about remediation for children with hearing loss. Much of the material in this volume will document that a different model of hearing is needed to understand hearing during development. The book is... more...

  • The Middle Earby Sunil Puria; Richard R. Fay; Arthur N. Popper

    Springer 2013; US$ 139.00

    The middle ear plays a vital role in the sense and sensitivity of hearing. Of the various characteristics that distinguish mammals from other vertebrates, several pertain specifically to the middle-ear system, such as the presence of three middle-ear bones and the four-layer composite structure of the tympanic membrane. The Middle Ear attempts to elucidate... more...

  • Deafnessby Andrej Kral; Arthur N. Popper; Richard R. Fay

    Springer 2013; US$ 139.00

    This book considers deafness as a medical condition, exploring the neuronal consequences on the peripheral and the central nervous system as well as on cognition and learning, viewed from the standpoint of genetics, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, molecular biology, systems neuroscience, and cognitive neuroscience. more...

  • Hair Cell Regeneration, Repair, and Protectionby Richard J. Salvi; Arthur N. Popper; Richard R. Fay

    Springer 2008; US$ 139.00

    Not male pattern baldness, but the loss of sensory hair, is a very serious topic. Sensory hair cells convert sound and motion into our sense of hearing, movement, and head position. In mammals, the loss of hair cells is irreversible. Or is it? Hair cells in other vertebrates are capable of regenerating and recovering partial or complete function. This... more...

  • Vertebrate Hair Cellsby Ruth Anne Eatock; Richard R. Fay; Arthur N. Popper

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 159.00

    Provides an overview of the mechanosensory receptor cells of the vertebrate inner ear. Each chapter is written by experimentalists active in exploring a particular set of questions in an aspect of hair cell function, including development, transduction, and synaptic transmission. more...

  • Development of the Inner Earby Matthew Kelley; Doris Du; Arthur N. Popper; Richard R. Fay

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 149.00

    Describing the embryonic development of the vertebrate inner ear, this book contains six chapters that span almost all aspects of inner ear development, from the induction of the otic placode through cellular morphogenesis, to the onset of auditory function. Each chapter examines a particular aspect of development of the inner ear. more...

  • Electroreceptionby Theodore H. Bullock; Richard R. Fay; Carl D. Hopkins

    Springer 2006; US$ 189.00

    Electroreception has become one of the most revealing areas in the study of the neural basis of behavior, and neurobiologists recognize it as a model sensory system for experimental study. Through studies of electroreception, researchers have gained extensive knowledge about a complete sensory system, from molecular biology to computation, communication,... more...
