Hearing Aids (Springer Handbook of Auditory Research)


This volume will serve as the first Handbook of its kind in the area of hearing aid research, often the least-defined, least-understood, part of the multi-disciplinary research process. Most scientific training is very advanced within the particular disciplines but provides little opportunity for systematic introduction to the issues and obstacles that prevent effective hearing-aid related research. This area has emerged as one of critical importance, as signified by a single specialized meeting (the International Hearing Aid Conference, IHCON) that brings together specialists from the disparate disciplines involved, including both university and industry researchers. Identification of the key steps that enable high-impact basic science to ultimately result in significant clinical advances that improve patient outcome is critical. This volume will provide an overview of current key issues in hearing aid research from the perspective of many different disciplines, not only from the perspective of the key funding agencies, but also from the scientists and clinicians who are currently involved in hearing aid research. It will offer insight into the experience, current technology and future technology that can help improve hearing aids, as scientists and clinicians typically have little or no formal training over the whole range of the individual disciplines that are relevant. The selection and coverage of topics insures that it will have lasting impact, well beyond immediate, short-term, or parochial concerns.   ?

Surgery for Cochlear and Other Auditory Implants


By (author): Mario Sanna, Paul Merkus, Rolien H. Free, Maurizio Falcioni

This comprehensive, high-level surgical reference and atlas is tailored
for surgeons who are undertaking training for cochlear implant
procedures and implantable auditory devices and for experienced
surgeons who would like to expand their knowledge, improve their skills
and outcomes, and learn advanced surgical techniques.

Following the principle underlying Professor Sanna’s other successful
publications, Surgery for Cochlear
and Other Auditory Implants
takes an integrated approach to
anatomy, imaging, technology, decision making, surgical procedures
described step by step, and clinical cases.

This book allows readers to:

  • Improve the e?ciency and outcomes of cochlear implantation and
    other auditory implant surgeries
  • Learn the required basic and advanced surgical techniques
  • Evaluate di?erent surgical options and types of implants
  • Review common and uncommon variations of anatomy and malformations
  • Understand issues and surgical modifications unique to pediatric
    cochlear implantation, to revision surgery, and in postmeningitis,
    otosclerosis, and NF2 cases
  • Find decision-making algorithms for di?cult pathologies
  • Examine common and not so common intraoperative dilemmas and
    identify strategies to resolve them
  • Review preoperative assessment and set up and outcomes
  • Find out about classification systems in cochlear implant
    failure, malformations, otosclerosis, and post meningitis

Supplementing the 1200 images within the book are 15 outstanding videos
available on Thieme’s MediaCenter demonstrating the implantation of the
di?erent cochlear implantation devices that are currently available and
the application of brainstem implants in these situations: tumor
removal, malformation (missing auditory nerve in children), and
cochlear ossification.

Auditory Mechanisms: Proceedings of the Ninth International Symposium Held at Portland, Oregon, USA 23 – 28 July 2005


The workshop brought together experts in genetics, molecular and cellular biology, physiology, engineering, physics, mathematics, audiology and medicine to present current work and to review the critical issues of inner ear function. A special emphasis of the workshop was on analytical model based studies. Experimentalists and theoreticians thus shared their points of view. The topics ranged from consideration of the hearing organ as a system to the study and modeling of individual auditory cells including molecular aspects of function. Some of the topics in the book are: motor proteins in hair cells; mechanical and electrical aspects of transduction by motor proteins; function of proteins in stereocilia of hair cells; production of acoustic force by stereocilia, mechanical properties of hair cells and the organ of Corti; mechanical vibration of the organ of Corti; wave propagation in tissue and fluids of the inner ear; sound amplification in the cochlea; critical oscillations; cochlear nonlinearity, and mechanisms for the production of otoacoustic emissions. This book will be invaluable to researchers and students in auditory science.

Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Zara M. Patel, Sarah K. Wise, John M. DelGaudio

Office-Based Rhinology conveys the principles and techniques necessary for successfully undertaking various rhinology procedures in the office setting. The procedures described will range from those commonly performed in the physician s office (e.g. nasal endoscopy and debridement) to certain procedures often performed in the operating room for which, in certain patients, an office setting would be appropriate (e.g. nasal polypectomy and drainage of mucoceles). It also covers relevant sinonasal anatomy and radiology, proper patient selection, and appropriate room setup. Its straightforward approach makes it an easy to use reference, a must-have for practicing otolaryngologists and senior level residents.

The book comes with a DVD which includes 28 surgical videos.

Hearing and Hormones (Springer Handbook of Auditory Research)


This book reviews the growing literature that is consistent with the hypothesis that hormones can regulate auditory physiology and perception across a broad range of animal taxa, including humans. Understanding how hormones modulate auditory function has far reaching implications for advancing our knowledge in the basic biomedical sciences and in understanding the evolution of acoustic communication systems. A fundamental goal of neuroscience is to understand how hormones modulate neural circuits and behavior. For example, steroids such as estrogens and androgens are well-known regulators of vocal motor behaviors used during social acoustic communication. Recent studies have shown that these same hormones can also greatly influence the reception of social acoustic signals, leading to the more efficient exchange of acoustic information.

Head, Shoulders, Pee, and Moles: An Eyes-and-Ears-and-Mouth-and-Nose Guide to Self-Diagnosis


By (author): Paul Kleinman

Forget doctor’s visits, questionnaires, and hours online – now readers can just look at themselves in the mirror and understand what’s going on with their insides! Thanks to the help and humour of Paul Kleinman, readers can learn and laugh about what they’ve got and what they’re coming down with, all by looking at their body. Prognoses include: dry, brittle hair is a symptom of hypothyroidism – it looks like you’re running low on hormones or moisturising shampoo; a white tongue is a tell-tale sign of a coming cold – tonight’s tonsil hockey game with Jane in Accounting has been cancelled; and, swollen hands could mean you have a serious inflammatory, infectious, or autoimmune condition – or maybe you did put on a few pounds on vacation. Drawn from real tenets of traditional medicine, modern research, and alternative practices like ayurveda, this tongue-in-cheek health guide will scratch any cybercondriac’s itch for information.
