Hearing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

While the study of the acoustics of sound is relatively well known, being a part of most physics textbooks, the study of the function of the auditory system, and our perception of sound, is still evolving. The purpose of this chapter is to review some basic acoustics, and then use this information as a springboard for studies of the structure and function of the auditory system, how this may lend itself to our perception of the world of sound, and how we may remediate this loss of perception in the case of hearing loss.
