This book is a compilation of cutting-edge research on the mechanical operation of the peripheral auditory system. Bringing together over 50 theoretical and experimental studies by leading researchers, it covers the molecular, cellular and systems levels using a powerful combination of biological, mathematical and engineering techniques. In addition to the scientific papers, the book includes the comments and discussions raised by the individual manuscripts at the time of their presentation, and a final chapter with the edited transcripts of a discussion session covering 'outstanding topics' between some of the most prominent researchers in the field.The first-hand information provided by these transcripts will make the book particularly interesting. Renowned contributors to the book include Profs. JF Ashmore (FRS, UK), E de Boer (The Netherlands), W Brownell (USA), P Dallos (USA), R Fettiplace (FRS, USA), AW Gummer (Germany), AJ Hudspeth (USA), DC Mountain (USA), AL Nuttall (USA), IJ Russell (FRS, UK), CA Shera (USA), and H Wada (Japan).
