Hearing is a comprehensive, authoritative reference work covering both the physiological and perceptual aspects of hearing. Intended for researchers and advanced students in the field of hearing, it reviews major areas of research in addition to new discoveries, including active mechanisms in the cochlea, across-channel processes in auditory masking, and perceptual grouping processes.

Review quote

"This effort is written explicitly as a handbook and could easily be used as a text in a graduate-level course. It is distinguished by three factors: its comprehensive coverage, the high quality of its content, and the uniformity of writing styles used by its contributors. These attributes are a testament to the efforts of both the editor and contributors. The latter are a truly diverse group being drawn in approximately equal numbers from the United States and Britain with a single contributor each from Australia and The Netherlands.... this is clearly a volume that should be on the shelves of every student of the hearing process whether they are veteran researchers or still in graduate school. Additionally, it will serve as an excellent sourcebook for those whose interest in hearing is more casual." --CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY

"My aim in editing this volume was to cover all major areas of hearing research with a series of coordinated and well-integrated chapters. Authors were asked particularly to emphasize concepts and mechanisms, and to attempt whenever possible to explain not just what the empirical data show, but also why they show a particular pattern.... There are many links between the phenomena and theories described in the different chapters. These links are pointed out in the extensive cross references between chapters. This should help the reader who wants to find out as much as possible about a specific topic." --BRIAN C.J. MOORE
