Otoacoustic Emissions: Principles, Procedures, and Protocols, Second Edition is a readable yet comprehensive source of information on otoacoustic emissions (OAEs). OAEs now play an important role in hearing screening and the clinical assessment of children and adults. The text begins with a succinct overview of OAEs and a historical description of their discovery and emergence as a clinical tool.
Otoacoustic Emissions collects the latest information on OAEs from basic research to clinical applications. The book is concise, but comprehensive, and covers the essentials of the subject from innovative and up-to-date perspectives. The second edition features updates across all chapters including current research findings and changing perspectives on OAE taxonomy, as well as new and updated illustrations throughout.
The material covered in the book is appropriate for intermediate and advanced students, and ideal for practicing audiologists. With a focus on practical information needed by the clinical audiologist, and an eye to technological developments, authors Dhar and Hall provide an up-to-date, straightforward, and clinically focused source of information on otoacoustic emissions.
About The Authors
Sumitrajit (Sumit) Dhar has studied Audiology and Hearing Science at the Mumbai University (India), Utah State University, and Purdue University. At Purdue, Sumit completed his PhD in 2001 under the tutelage of Professors Glenis Long and Arnold Tubis. Between 1992 and 2000, Sumit has held several clinical positions as audiologist, audiology-supervisor, and clinic manager. His first academic appointment was at Indiana University, Bloomington. Today, Sumit is Associate Professor at the Roxelyn and Richard Pepper Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University, where he teaches courses in audiology and applied hearing science and is actively involved in the operation of the AuD program. Research in his lab is primarily focused on the theory and practice of otoacoustic emissions as they relate to cochlear mechanics and auditory behavior. His research is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Hugh Knowles Foundation at Northwestern University. He has also received funding from the Deafness Research Foundation in the recent past.
Dr. James W. Hall III is Clinical Professor in the Department of Communicative Disorders at the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he maintains a clinical practice and is an instructor in the Doctor of Audiology on-site and distance learning programs.
Dr. Halls main research interests are auditory neurophysiology, auditory processing disorders, early identification of hearing loss in infants, and tinnitus/hyperacusis. Dr. Hall lectures internationally on these topics. He is the author of numerous journal articles, monographs, or book chapters, as well as the Handbook of Auditory Evoked Responses and Audiologists Desk Reference Volumes I and II, the Handbook of Otoacoustic Emissions and the New Handbook of Auditory Evoked Responses.
