About this book

This volume presents a set of essays that discuss the development and plasticity of the vertebrate auditory system. The topic is one that has been considered before in the Springer Handbook of Auditory Research (volume 9 in 1998, and volume 23 in 2004) but the field has grown substantially and it is appropriate to bring previous material up to date to reflect the wealth of new data and to raise some entirely new topics. At the same time, this volume is also unique in that it is the outgrowth of a symposium honoring two-time SHAR co-editor Professor Edwin W Rubel on his retirement. The focus of this volume, though, is an integrated set of papers that reflect the immense contributions that Dr. Rubel has made to the field over his career. Thus, the volume concurrently presents a topic that is timely for SHAR, but which also honors the pioneer in the field. Each chapter explores development with consideration of plasticity and how it becomes limited over time. The editors have selected authors with professional, and often personal, connections to Dr. Rubel, though all are, in their own rights, outstanding scholars and leaders in their fields. The specific audience will be graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and established psychologists and neuroscientists who are interested in auditory function, development, and plasticity. This volume will also be of interest to hearing scientists and to the broad neuroscience community because many of the ideas and principles associate with the auditory system are applicable to most sensory systems. The volume is organized to appeal to psychophysicists, neurophysiologists, anatomists, and systems neuroscientists who attend meetings such as those held by the Association for Research in Otolaryngology, the Acoustical Society of America, and the Society for Neuroscience.

About the authors

Dr. Coffin’s research interests encompass both basic and applied work in auditory neuroscience, from neuroethology research on hearing in fishes to biomedical work on hearing loss and prevention. Her recent research includes work on environmental effects on sensory cell development and plasticity, particularly the role of environmental toxins and how these influence the auditory system. Dr. Cramer’s research addresses the development and plasticity of central auditory pathways in the brainstem. She has identified mechanisms by which families of molecules shape auditory circuitry during normal development and during injury-induced reorganization of neural circuits. She is currently studying the role of glial cells in auditory circuit maturation and has begun to explore auditory function in animal models of autism. Together they bring to the volume unique scientific expertise on auditory development and plasticity and they will ensure the timely progression of the editorial process.

Reviews

“This is a detailed monograph on the molecular and cellular neurophysiology of the hearing circuitry in animals, avians, zebrafish, and other vertebrates. ... This book is written by well respected experts in the field of auditory neurophysiology.” (Joseph Grenier, Amazon.com, June, 2018)
