Description

The Springer Handbook of Auditory Research presents a series of compreh- sive and synthetic reviews of the fundamental topics in modern auditory - search. The volumes are aimed at all individuals with interests in hearing research including advanced graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and clinical investigators. The volumes are intended to introduce new investigators to important aspects of hearing science and to help established investigators to better understand the fundamental theories and data in ?elds of hearing that they may not normally follow closely. Each volume presents a particular topic comprehensively, and each serves as a synthetic overview and guide to the literature. As such, the chapters present neither exhaustive data reviews nor original research that has not yet appeared in peer-reviewed journals. The volumes focus on topics that have developed a solid data and conceptual foundation rather than on those for which a literature is only beginning to develop. New research areas will be covered on a timely basis in the series as they begin to mature.

Back cover copy

The localization of sound is a fundamental requirement for all auditory
systems and has motivated much research. This comprehensive volume
brings together topics from many specialties that have been touched upon
in other volumes of the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research.
Reviewing sound source localization capacities and mechanisms in a
variety of organisms, this volume provides a synthesis and update on the
topic that is both original and timely. The authors treat sound source
localization in a comparative context with an emphasis on modeling and
computational mechanisms.
