Description:

Describing the process of normal hearing as it occurs in most mammals and especially humans, the Fifth Edition of Fundamentals of Hearing brings its focus on the auditory pathway up to date. This edition of the 1977 classic features William Yost's comprehensive, general introduction to sound, the auditory System, and the basic facts about our auditory sensations and perceptions. Written for the non-specialist and completely updated, with new sections for those seeking directions for further research, the Fifth Edition includes a website and a workbook. The animations, movies, and sounds available on the website make the Fifth Edition indispensible for beginners and serious researchers alike. Book jacket.
