The symposium on Sensorineural Hearing Processes and Disorders reported in this book must have surely been rewarding to those who attended it if we can judge from perusing the excellent papers presented at the meeting. It is only necessary to read the list of contributors and the subjects covered to know that all aspects of this difficult and obscure subject were thoroughly covered.
Sixty-one contributors, all experts in their fields, presented 40 scientific papers, discussions, and summaries. As the editor stated in the preface of the report, the purpose of the symposium was to: "... review the significant research and clinical findings of outstanding experimenters in psychoacoustics, otology, otoneurology, physiology, and audiology and to explore new areas worthy of study." From a reading of this book it is clear that the purposes of the symposium were achieved.
All the recent information on sensorineural hearing loss is presented in this one volume.
