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.
Anthony Cacace discusses physics, biology, and modelling with Douglas L. Beck, AuD in The Hearing Review. Read the inteview here.
"Scientific Foundations in Audiology: Perspectives from Physics, Biology, Modeling, and Medicine is a unique textbook which discusses a wide range of state-of-the-art topics in hearing, vestibular and brain science. The editors purport that this book is geared towards doctoral students, medics and those operating between innovation and clinical practice. Indeed, the overall impression is that the book assumes a great deal of prior theoretical and practical understanding regarding various facets of audiology. As such, it excludes many of the basic concepts found in common audiology textbooks, to focus on emerging concepts in practice such as developments in genetics, imaging, auditory implants, and speech processing, amongst others. The success of the book owes much to the fact that the issues of translating basic research to clinical practice in each of these topics are discussed in a clear and straightforward manner by all the contributors. . . . I would highly recommend this textbook as a solid background reading to post-graduate students wishing to research and of the topics covered within."
