Hearing Across the Lifespan-Assessment and Disorders is the second book in a three-book series series focused on Translational Perspectives in Auditory Neuroscience.


The book reviews what is known about the developing auditory system, what happens as we age, as well as a brief synopsis of the disordered auditory system. These aspects of human perception are then extended by the discussion of state of the art noninvasive physiologic measures of hearing. Many of these measures are tools used to assay the auditory system in applied research studies, as well as used in the clinical evaluation of subjects.


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

The third book is entitled Special Topics and provides "translational" perspectives on current topics in hearing science.

Review

  • Mridula Sharma, Macquarie University, The HEARing Cooperative Research Centre, International Journal of Audiology (2013):
    "Translational research is the bridge that connects research and clinical practice and at present there is a lot of interest in this field. As Dr. Tremblay identified...scientists and clinicians are often driven by very different perspectives. Sadly, there are not many books in audiology that address the question of translational research and hence the arrival of the books edited by Drs. Tremblay and Burkard are very timely. The themes within each chapter pertain to common clinical findings and the authors have maintained a style that is easy to read...A number of books are currently available on objective techniques for investigating auditory function, but the emphasis on the translation of these techniques into clinical practice makes this book very topical and [a] useful addition to the literature...linking research and clinical perspectives in an accessible format. Students, practicing audiologists, and researchers would certainly benefit from this text..."
