This book represents a compilation of discussions by several authors dealing with the normal and abnormal function of the labyrinth. As expected, the book is weighted toward the audiologic evaluation and rehabilitation of hearing loss, but also includes chapters on the normal and abnormal physiology of the labyrinth, as well as the treatment of medical disorders producing hearing loss and dizziness.
