The Springer Handbook of Auditory Research presents a series of comprehensive and synthetic reviews of the fundamental topics in modern auditory research. The v- umes are aimed at all individuals with interests in hearing research including advanced graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and clinical investigators. The volumes are intended to introduce new investigators to important aspects of hearing science and to help established investigators to better understand the fundamental theories and data in fields of hearing that they may not normally follow closely. Each volume presents a particular topic comprehensively, and each serves as a synthetic overview and guide to the literature. As such, the chapters present neither exhaustive data reviews nor original research that has not yet appeared in pe- reviewed journals. The volumes focus on topics that have developed a solid data and conceptual foundation rather than on those for which a literature is only beg- ning to develop. New research areas will be covered on a timely basis in the series as they begin to mature. Texte du rabat This volume, Computational Models of the Auditory System, has as a systems approach where the focus is on studies which contribute to the big picture of hearing. In effect, the work covered in this volume, and the volume itself, builds a global model of audition. The chapters, rather than focusing on details of individual components of the hearing system, address the concerns of readers and researchers who want to know how the auditory system works as a whole.Contents:
