Plural has made available the FIRST EDITION, originally published in 2007 by Pearson Education, Inc.
The Auditory System: Anatomy, Physiology, and Clinical Correlates is a comprehensive text on the anatomy and physiology of the peripheral as well as the central auditory systems.
The textbook takes an easy-to-understand approach to anatomy and physiology of the auditory system. The text provides balanced coverage and, whenever possible, a case study, a brief review, or a clinical comment is connected to the basic science principle being discussed. The added "clinical" information is highlighted in the text as clinical or pathological correlates. This feature is designed to provide a link between science and practice in a relevant manner.
- Increases appreciation of the entire auditory system by providing balanced coverage between peripheral and central auditory systems.
- Chapter 1 provides a quick reference and overview to the entire text.
- Integrated clinical correlates for anatomical and physiological information provide clinical relevance.
- Generous use of review articles and secondary sources enhances general understanding of the subject.
- Facilitates learning with a balanced mixture of anatomical sketches and photographs.
