This book contains a group of papers presented at a satellite symposium to the 28th International Congress of Physiological Sciences in Prague (1980) and organized by the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. Recent advances in neurophysiologic and neuroanatomic methods are presented by prominent auditory researchers from several countries. This volume is most appropriate for contemporary researchers in neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, and psychophysiology, and considerable background knowledge is assumed.

This collection of 51 presentations covers a wide range of topics dealing with peripheral neural mechanisms, central mechanisms, and auditory development as well as auditory neuroprostheses. Depending on one's area of interest, different papers will stand out; however, the volume as a whole provides the reader with an overall picture of current research data in the area of neuronal mechanisms. Some of the specific topics include hair-cell receptor potentials, neural coding of complex sounds, functional organization and physiologic properties of the cochlear nucleus, inferior
