This unique compilation of chapters reviews a broad range of topics at the cutting edge of hearing research. The authors include many of the top auditory scientists in the world as well as some of the brightest rising stars. Although the book obviously focuses on the exciting, revolutionary work being done with mice, the authors have made a strong effort to provide general background information and present the insights gained from the study of mice in the greater context of auditory research. Each section includes specific procedures, potential problems and their solutions, and tricks of the trade gleaned from the authors. The book contains numerous figures and tables, more than 2,000 references, and much data not previously published. Handbook of Mouse Auditory Research: From Behavior to Molecular Biology provides state-of-the-art research with a clear look at what the future holds.
