New Audiology Textbook Receives 4-star Review from Doodys!

We are excited to share that our new audiology textbook entitled “Human Auditory Evoked Potentials,” by Dr. Terence Picton, received 4-stars from Doodys!

Ryan McCreery, M.S.(Boys Town National Research Hospital), DOODY’S REVIEWS, (December 2010):
“4 STARS! The book is conceptually divided into three major sections. The first section provides in-depth background on the measurement of auditory evoked potentials, including basic physiological concepts and general measurement considerations. The second section outlines specific auditory evoked potentials and the measurement of those responses. The third section covers specific applications of auditory evoked potentials, including infant hearing assessment, neurotology, auditory neuropathy, and cochlear implants. This group of chapters provides a unique perspective on the applications for auditory evoked potentials. This [book] is a comprehensive overview of a wide range of auditory evoked responses for clinicians and researchers. The chapters on applications of auditory evoked potentials for neurotology, auditory neuropathy, and cochlear implants are important elements.”
