About this book

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.

About the authors

Drs. Bass and Sisneros are both internationally recognized experts in the field of steroid-dependent plasticity of the auditory system. Together they have published high-impact papers on the adaptive hormone dependent plasticity of the auditory system, and more generally in the field of neuroethology and acoustic communication. Together they bring to the volume unique scientific expertise on the effects of hormones on hearing and they will ensure the timely progression of the editorial process
