About this book

The Primary Auditory Neurons of the Mammalian Cochlea details the essential role of the spiral ganglion neurons, elucidates and characterizes their development, their environment, their electrophysiological characteristics, their connectivity to their targets in the inner ear and the brain, and discusses the potential for their regeneration. A comprehensive review about the spiral ganglion neurons is important for researchers not only in the inner ear field but also in development, neuroscience, biophysics as well as neural networks researchers.

The chapters of The Primary Auditory Neurons of the Mammalian Cochlea are authored by leading researchers in the field.
