Description

The Auditory System in Sleep, Second Edition, presents a view of a sensory system working in a different state-that of the sleeping brain. The auditory system is always “open” receiving information from the environment and the body itself (conscious and unconscious data). Although profoundly modified, the processing of sensory information is still present during sleep. The incoming sensory information may alter sleep and waking physiology, and, conversely, the sleeping brain imposes rules on information processing. This book draws information from evoked potentials, fMRI, PET, SPECT, lesions, etc., together with electrophysiological online data in order to depict how the auditory system single unit activity, recorded during sleep, revealed the possibility of sensory information participation in sleep processes. The new edition contains new chapters on topics such as implanted deaf patients and sleep and Tinnitus treatment during sleep. This book is written for basic auditory system and sleep researchers, as well as practitioners and clinicians in the Auditory/Sensory Neurosciences and Sleep Medicine.
