This book represents the proceedings of a conference at Oxford in 1963 organized by the Medical Research Committee of the National Deaf Children's Society, whose function is to foster and support research in order to solve outstanding problems of deafness in children.

The first division of the book deals with research in the causes of deafness and, while there is little new information here, some thought-provoking presentations are given. In the second half of the book hearing tests as they are presently practiced in children, problems in testing, problems in interpretation of electroencephalograms and other electrophysical changes in response to auditory stimuli, and the need for hearing tests in the newborn are discussed.
