The Physics of Ear discusses various concerns of the physical aspects of the auditory systems. The book is comprised of 15 chapters that cover the whole spectrum of the physics of ear, from electrical activity up to the acoustics. The coverage of the text includes the anatomy and physiology of the ear, its nervous mechanisms, and dynamics of its electrical activity. The book also details binaural hearing, acoustics, and audiometry. Several chapters are dedicated to covering various hearing defects, including deafness. The text will be of great use to researchers and practitioners in fields that deal with acoustics and the biological process of sensing sounds, such as otolaryngology.
