    Of the two pathways through which we hear, air conduction (AC) and bone conduction (BC), the fundamental mechanisms of the BC pathway remains to be poorly understood, despite its clinical significance. In the first study, a finite-element (FE) model of a human middle ear and cochlea was developed to gain insight into the mechanisms of BC hearing. BC excitations were simulated in the form of rigid-body vibrations of the surrounding bony structures in the x, y, and z orthogonal directions. The results show that the BM vibration characteristics are essentially invariant regardless of whether the excitation is BC, independent of excitation directions, or for AC. Analysis reveals that this is because the BM vibration apparently responds only to the anti-symmetric slow wave cochlea fluid pressure component and not the symmetric fast wave pressure component. In the second study, an improved three-dimensional FE model of a human middle ear coupled to a cochlea was formulated. The geometry of both the middle ear and cochlea, including semicircular canals, was obtained from micro-computed tomography ([mu]CT) images. In the study, BC and AC excitations were simulated as the same way as the previous simulation in the first study. After testing a range of vibrational directions, it was found that the vibrational direction normal to the BM surface at the base of the cochlea caused the highest BM velocity response across all tested frequencies--higher even than an excitation direction normal to the BM surface at the (non-basal) best-frequency locations corresponding to the other stimulus frequencies. The basal part of the human cochlea features a well-developed hook region, in which the BM undergoes a sudden curvature that produces the largest difference in fluid volume between the scala vestibuli (SV) and scala tympani (ST) found throughout the whole cochlea, and due to the sudden curvature of the hook region, the normal direction to the BM surface in this region differs significantly from the normal directions to the BM along the rest of the length of the cochlea. In the third study, the effects of otosclerosis and superior semicircular canal (SSC) dehiscence (SSCD) on hearing sensitivity were investigated via AC and BC pathways, using the FE model developed in the second study. Otosclerosis conditions were simulated by stiffing stapes annular ligament and removing the middle-ear inertia through removing stapedius tendon and incudostapedial joint. Dehiscences were modeled by removing a section of the outer bony wall of the SSC and applying a zero-pressure condition to the fluid surface thus exposed. In the results, otosclerosis condition caused the biggest bone-conduction hearing loss around 1.5 kHz, which is called 'Carhart notch'. In addition, dehiscence caused decreasing of the basilar membrane velocity, VBM(x), and fluid pressure in the cochlea in air conduction whereas increasing in bone conduction at low frequencies. Furthermore, the location and size of dehiscence affected the BC hearing threshold. Not previously shown is that the initial width (defined as the edge of dehiscence at which the flowing energy from the oval window meets for the first time) on the vestibular side of the dehiscence has more effect than the area of the dehiscence. The analyses of the FE model further predict that the ABG due to a dehiscence should converge to 0 dB at 10 kHz.

    Efferent sensory systems have emerged as major components of processing by the central nervous system. Whereas the afferent sensory systems bring environmental information into the brain, efferent systems function to monitor, sharpen, and attend selectively to certain stimuli while ignoring others. This ability of the brain to implement these functions enables the organism to make fine discriminations and to respond appropriately to environmental conditions so that survival is enhanced. Our focus will be on auditory and vestibular efferents, topics linked together by the inner ear connection.

    The hearing organs of non-mammals, which show quite large and systematic differences to each other and to those of mammals, provide an invaluable basis for comparisons of structure and function. By taking advantage of the vast diversity of possible study organisms provided by the "library" that is biological diversity, it is possible to learn how complex functions are realized in the inner ear through the evolution of specific structural, cellular and molecular configurations. Insights from Comparative Hearing Research brings together some of the most exciting comparative research on hearing and shows how this work has profoundly impacted our understanding of hearing in all vertebrates.

    "The topic of loudness is of considerable concern both in and outside of research laboratories. Most people have developed an opinion about some aspect of loudness, and many complain about the loudness of background sounds in their daily environments and their impacts on quality of life. Moreover, such sounds interfere with the ability to hear useful sounds, and such masking can be especially problematic for people with hearing losses, children, older adults, and non-native speakers of a language. At the same time, not all loud sounds are undesirable. Some loud sounds are important for human well-being, such as warning signals, whereas other loud sounds, such as music, can be pleasurable. In fact, loudness is essential for enjoying the dynamics of music. Thus, loudness is a pervasive and complex issue, and one that needs to be examined from a wide range of perspectives, and that is the purpose of this volume. Research in loudness has been performed in many countries, and this volume is an international endeavor with authors from Europe, Japan, and the United States, making the volume an attempt to provide a global network of information about loudness. The editors are very pleased to be able to bring together information on many aspects of loudness in this one volume, as well as to highlight approaches from many different perspectives."--Publisher's website.

    In our industrialized world, we are surrounded by occupational, recreational, and environmental noise. Very loud noise damages the inner-ear receptors and results in hearing loss, subsequent problems with communication in the presence of background noise, and, potentially, social isolation. There is much less public knowledge about the noise exposure that produces only temporary hearing loss but that in the long term results in hearing problems due to the damage of high-threshold auditory nerve fibers. Early exposures of this kind, such as in neonatal intensive care units, manifest themselves at a later age, sometimes as hearing loss but more often as an auditory processing disorder. There is even less awareness about changes in the auditory brain caused by repetitive daily exposure to the same type of low-level occupational or musical sound. This low-level, but continuous, environmental noise exposure is well known to affect speech understanding, produce non-auditory problems ranging from annoyance and depression to hypertension, and to cause cognitive difficulties. Additionally, internal noise, such as tinnitus, has effects on the brain similar to low-level external noise. Noise and the Brain discusses and provides a synthesis of the underlying brain mechanisms as well as potential ways to prvent or alleviate these aberrant brain changes caused by noise exposure. Authored by one of the preeminent leaders in the field of hearing research. Emphasizes direct and indirect changes in brain function as a result of noise exposure. Provides a comprehensive and evidence-based approach. Addresses both developmental and adult plasticityIncludes coverage of epidemiology, etiology, and genetics of hearing problems; effects of non-damaging sound on both the developing and adult brain; non-auditory effects of noise; noise and the aging brain; and more.

    Exposure to loud noise continues to be one of the largest causes of hearing loss in the adult population, already affecting some 15 percent of Americans between the ages of 20 and 69. There have been a number of discoveries and advances that have increased our understanding of the mechanisms of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL). These advances have the potential to impact how NIHL can be prevented and how our noise standards can be made more appropriate. Noise-Induced Hearing Loss describes the effect of environmental noise on hearing, provides important background on the subject, and also explores the broader issues currently arising on effects of noise on non-human vertebrates.

    (Publisher-supplied data) Historically, the diagnosis of deafness in a child has been closely associated with profound disability, including such typical outcomes as unmet potential and a life of isolation. A major shift away from this negative view has led to improved prospects for deaf children. Resilience in Deaf Children emphasizes not only the capability of deaf individuals to withstand adversity, but also their positive adaptation through interactions with parents, peers, school, and community. In this engaging volume, leading researchers and professionals pay particular attention to such issues as attachment, self-concept, and social competence, which are crucial to the development of all young people. In addition, the volume offers strategies for family members, professionals, and others for promoting the well-being of deaf children and youth. Coverage includes: Attachment formation among deaf infants and their primary caregivers. Deaf parents as sources of positive development and resilience for deaf infants. Enhancing resilience to mental health disorders in deaf school children. Strength-based guidelines for improving the developmental environments of deaf children and youth. Community cultural wealth and deaf adolescents resilience. Self-efficacy in the management of anticipated work-family conflict as a resilience factor among young deaf adults. Resilience in Deaf Children is essential reading for researchers, clinicians, and graduate students in clinical child, school, and developmental psychology as well as for allied researchers and professionals in such disciplines as school counseling, occupational therapy, and social work.

    This book provides the first comprehensive overview of the various conventional and cutting-edge surgical techniques for stapes fixations. After describing the broad range of stapes fixations, it discusses the preoperative diagnostic workup, with special emphasis on the role of CT scanning. It reviews stapedectomy and stapedotomy via the classic tympanotomy approach using different stapes footplate fenestration methodologies, and describes the increasingly popular technique of middle ear endoscopy. A subsequent chapter is devoted to the important topic of robot-assisted surgery. The book then reviews the evolution of the piston prosthesis, highlighting the practical aspects of the different types of piston, their benefits, and their impact on hearing. Lasers are also discussed, and the closing chapters focus on revision surgery and consider outcome measures following stapes surgery. To better illustrate the subject matter, the book features a wealth of photographs (including more than 50 in color), as well as in-depth surgical videos.
