Hearing is a sensory modality critical to both language and cognitive development. In its absence, and without sensory input through another modality, such as the manual/visual modality of sign language, cognitive and language development can be severely impaired in the earliest formative years of a child. In its endeavor to d- cover the mechanisms underlying audition, the ?eld of auditory science has provided rich comparative physiological studies, allowing insights into both the micromecha- cal and electrochemical world of this system. For many years, the auditory/vestibular sciences have been in?uenced by the discoveries of electrical engineers and sensory physiologists, who have provided insights into the functions of this dynamic system. The early discoveries in these ?elds, as well as advancements in microprocessing and materials technologies, provided a means whereby hearing could be regained partly through the use of a bionic device, known as a cochlear implant. Presently, this device and the auditory brainstem implant are the only ones to prosthetically replace brain function. With the advent of molecular biology tools, such as RT-PCR, the auditory and vestibular ?elds have made great strides in understanding the genetic basis for various hearing and balance disorders over the past ?fteen to twenty years. These technologies permitted the discovery of genes that control inner ear structure and function by ov- coming the hurdle of working with small amounts of tissue, as found in the inner ear.

Efferent sensory systems have emerged as major components of processing by the central nervous system. Whereas the afferent sensory systems bring environmental information into the brain, efferent systems function to monitor, sharpen, and attend selectively to certain stimuli while ignoring others. This ability of the brain to implement these functions enables the organism to make fine discriminations and to respond appropriately to environmental conditions so that survival is enhanced. Our focus will be on auditory and vestibular efferents, topics linked together by the inner ear connection. The biological utility of the efferent system is striking. How it functions is less well understood, and with each new discovery, more questions arise. The book that is proposed here reflects our vision to share what is known on the topic by authors who actually have made the observations.

Thanks to advances in genetics and genomics, research on inner ear development has flourished. Better approaches and experimental models have shed light on the function of a variety of vertebrate genes and their related proteins. This latest volume of Current Topics in Developmental Biology delves into this new research to show how the discovery of more genes involved in the development of the inner ear leads to the generation of new models that examine a wealth of issues -- from the origins of human deafness to the roles of genes during inner ear induction, development and differentiation. The wide variety of experimental approaches will help readers to understand the broad range of issues related to inner ear morphogenesis and other concepts from complementary areas of investigation. This state-of-the-art overview will be essential reading for researchers, clinicians and students alike. * Scores of high-quality, full- color figures * Detailed schemes on the structure and timing of ear development * Current Topics in Developmental Biology is the longest-running forum for contemporary issues in developmental biology

This timely book reflects trends in managing patients with inner ear disease through medical means rather than through surgical treatment. Covering the clinical applications of cutting-edge research, including regenerative medicine for inner ear disease, inner ear perfusion treatments, vestibular rehabilitation for balance retraining, and the use of cochlear implants, this text keeps you abreast of the latest advances and information in the field. You will learn how to diagnose and manage peripheral auditory and vestibular disorders, central vestibular disorders, disorders of the facial nerve, and more. The authors offer insights into the genetics of hearing loss and immune-mediated inner ear disease that help illuminate the underlying principles needed to understand, diagnose and treat dysfunction.Key features: Reviews the fundamental concepts, evaluation and management techniques of inner ear disease and disorders including tinnitus and dysfunction of the Eustachian tube Presents different treatment options based on underlying disease as opposed to symptomatic treatments Discusses the audiometric, vestibular, and laboratory tests that guide the clinician through the early stages of patient care Covers the recent advances in inner ear fluids dynamics and the genetics of hearing loss to provide a more complete understanding of disease and dysfunction Clinicians in the early stages of their careers as well as experts in the field will find the book an excellent reference for clinical and rehabilitation management, as well as for knowledge in the basic and advanced auditory and vestibular sciences and medicine.
