Special Topics is the third book in a three-book series focused on Translational Perspectives in Auditory Neuroscience.

The book interweaves both basic and applied research, and hence provides "translational" perspectives on “hot topics” in hearing science.

The first book in the series is Normal Aspects of Hearing.

The second book is Hearing Across the Lifespan-Assessment and Disorders and provides "translational" perspectives on current topics in hearing science.


"Translational Perspectives in Auditory Neuroscience: Special Topics, edited by Tremblay and Burkard, is a textbook consisting of six chapters that cover a variety of clinical issues. Each chapter is written by a well-known author or team of authors. The purpose of the text is to bridge the gap between basic science and clinical practice. Within the text, the clinical applicability of theoretical concepts are illustrated and applied.

This text examines topics at the forefront of clinical practice, including noise induced hearing loss, auditory temporal processing, inner ear regeneration, tinnitus, as well as auditory plasticity and auditory training. Within each chapter, relevant background information is covered...This text makes a significant contribution to the knowledge base, not just for students, but also for clinicians and researchers. Particularly for students, this information will bring Hearing Science and Anatomy and Physiology classes to life. For researchers and clinicians, this text provides a nice model of how to translate basic research into clinical practice. This text seems to be geared toward the intermediate to advanced readers, but with due diligence, the beginner could gain useful information.

The chapters are well written and easy to read...Table and figures supplement and support the text. Overall, I highly recommend this textbook. The editors and authors were successful in conveying clinically relevant information to the reader in a way that bridges the gap between basic science and clinical practice. I would recommend this text, particularly to students and clinicians."

Kelly Tremblay

Kelly Tremblay, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University at Washington. She earned a bachelor’s degree. in Psychology from the University of Western Ontario, Canada and a MSc in Audiology from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her interest in hearing science began in Colorado, as an audiologist who worked with hearing aid and cochlear implant users. Interested in auditory rehabilitation, she returned to school to learn more about the neuroscience underlying rehabilitation. She completed a PhD at Northwestern University, followed by post-doctoral training at the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles, California.

As a clinician and neuroscientist, Kelly Tremblay uses her training in neuroscience to better understand some of the everyday listening difficulties people with hearing loss describe. Because the typical person with a hearing loss is usually older and has been deprived of sound for some time, Dr. Tremblay’s scholarly interests include defining the effects of aging and hearing loss on the brain. Another research interest of hers is to determine if auditory training can be used to improve the neural representation of acoustic cues transmitted by the ear to the cortex. She has published numerous papers and book chapters on these topics, and has received grant awards from many organizations including the National Institutes of Health. She has served as an Associate Editor for the American Journal of Audiology, an Assistant Editor for the Journal of the American Academy of Audiology, and a Section Editor for the journal Ear and Hearing.
