Summary This book on the auditory brain is the second volume in The Oxford Handbook of Auditory Science. It brings together leading authorities to describe what we know about the brain bases of hearing. Following the first section on structure and function, there follow sections on information coding within the brain, development, aging and plasticity, cognition and emotion, and pathology of the auditory brain. The book covers topics related to auditory science, neuroscience, ENT, and psychology
