Within any science, there is a gap between the basic research and clinical laboratories. Everyone is aware of the gap and would like to see it reduced, but recognizes that reading both the basic and clinical science literature is an overwhelming task. Hence, the gap remains until symposia are held to create the time for interchanges between the basic scientist and the clinical scientist.

Evoked Electrical Activity in the Auditory Nervous System reports the proceedings of such a symposium that was held at the University of Chicago in the late fall of 1977. Both the presentations and discussions that followed are recorded in the book. The symposium separated the auditory system into three major anatomical divisions: (1) the peripheral mechanisms, including the cochlea and the first-order neurons; (2) the brainstem; and (3) the cortex. Anatomy, physiology, pathologies, and evoked potential measures were discussed for each division of the auditory system.
