This volume brings together noted scientists who study presbycusis from the perspective of complementary disciplines, for a review of the current state of knowledge on the aging auditory system. Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) is one of the top three most common chronic health conditions affecting individuals aged 65 years and older. The high prevalence of age-related hearing loss compels audiologists, otolaryngologists, and auditory neuroscientists alike to understand the neural, genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying this disorder. A comprehensive understanding of these factors is needed so that effective prevention, intervention, and rehabilitative strategies can be developed to ameliorate the myriad of behavioral manifestations.

From the reviews:

“This book provides an overview of all areas of age-related hearing loss, from physiology to epidemiology to processing of spoken language. … targeted at those who are interested in hearing research, advanced graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and clinical investigators. … This topic is covered thoroughly in a well-balanced and comprehensive way. … the book provides an ‘overview of contemporary research trends from interrelated disciplines whose studies aim to meet this compelling need.’” (Melanie Moriarty, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2010)

“Designed to introduce new researchers to fundamentals and veterans to interesting areas of audiology … . The 10 studies here are by scientists who study presbycusis – hearing loss attributed to the aging process – from the perspective of a complementary discipline such as physiology, otolayngology, neurobiology or psychology.” (SciTech Book News, June, 2010)
