Hardbound. Several observations have recently contributed significantly to our knowledge of the processes involved in the transmission of signals in the auditory system. These events include the mechanical motion pattern of the cochlear partition, the motion of hair cell cilia, gating of receptor currents, hair cell motility, synaptic transmission and signal processing in central nuclei and in the auditory cortex. Hearing may therefore be considered to arise from a series of active processes which modify the signals sent to the brain. This book is the edited proceedings of a Wenner-Gren International Symposium held in Stockholm in May, 1994. Focusing on the dynamic aspects of the hearing process, the content represents the work of the major research laboratories in all fields of auditory research. The chapters are organized to proceed out from the brain, level by level, towards the periphery.
