Scientific Foundations of Audiology – eBook PDF

With advancements across several scientific and medical fields, professionals in audiology are in an exceptional position to integrate cutting-edge technology with real-world situations. Scientific Foundations of Audiology, (PDF) provides a strong basis and philosophical framework for understanding several domains of hearing science in the setting of contemporary developments in genetics, gene expression, neuroimaging, neurochemistry, bioengineering, cochlear and mid-brain implants, associated speech processing, and understanding, physics, modeling, medicine, molecular biology, and clinical practice.

Key features of this textbook include:

  • Advanced contributions from a stellar array of international, world-class experts
  • Discussion of combining newly developed technology within the clinical practice of audiology
  • Highly technical information presented in a consistent and understandable manner (i.e., concepts without complex equations)

Scientific Foundations of Audiology is geared toward doctoral students in audiology, physics, and engineering; residents in otolaryngology, neurosurgery, neurology, and pediatrics; and those intermediaries between innovation and clinical reality.
