About this book

The biology of auditory and vestibular efferent systems encompasses a wide range of issues where exploration requires knowledge of basic anatomy, electrophysiology, and pharmacology of the inner ear.  These topics lead into discussions of development and evolution of efferent systems.  The functional significance of these systems is highlighted by an overview of central efferent anatomy, neuronal responses, and plasticity following efferent activation.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an outstanding book concerning the vestibular and cochlear systems in small animals. … this is an outstanding reference for students in physiology, hearing, psychophysics, etc. Seasoned neurophysiologists, audiologists, and advanced investigators can benefit substantially from this reference.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, October, 2014)
