   The Frequency-Following Response
A Window into Human Communication

T. White-Schwoch,
R. R. Fay,
A. N. Popper (Eds.)
Series: Springer Handbook of Auditory Research,Vol. 61 Copyright: 2017 Publisher: Springer Inter- national Publishing Copyright Holder: Springer International Publishing AG
Hardcover ISBN: 978-3-319-47942-2 Series ISSN: 0947-2657
Edition Number: 1
Number of Pages: XVI, 294
Number of Illustrations and Tables:
34 b/w illustrations, 32 illustrations in color Topics: Otorhinolaryngology
• Provides a broad overview frequency-following response science
• Spans a unique array of subfields of auditory neuroscience including physiology, psychoacoustics, audiology
• Represents a significant up-to-date source of information on FFR and its applications to the study of human com- munication
This volume will cover a variety of topics, including child language development; hearing loss; listening in noise; sta- tistical learning; poverty; auditory processing disorder; co- chlear neuropathy; attention; and aging. It will appeal broad- ly to auditory scientists—and in fact, any scientist interested in the biology of human communication and learning. The range of the book highlights the interdisciplinary series of questions that are pursued using the auditory frequency- following response and will accordingly attract a wide and diverse readership, while remaining a lasting resource for the field.
About the Authors
Nina Kraus Nina Kraus has innovated the use of FFR as a measure of human communication skills, life experience, and auditory learning and memory. She is a senior scholar in the field and brings over 30 years’ experience pursuing basic and translational questions in auditory neuroscience.
Samira Anderson is a scientist-clinician who brings 25 years’ experience in the clinic and as a young investigator has made major contributions to the understanding of central auditory processing, with a particular emphasis on neuro- plasticity and aging/hearing loss.
Travis White-Schwoch is a member of the Kraus laboratory with extensive experience in FFR theory and technology, and developmental changes in auditory processing. The editorial team has a strong history of collaboration, and together they bring unique knowledge to the book.
Arthur N. Popper is Professor Emeritus and Research Pro- fessor in the Department of Biology at the University of Maryland, College Park.
Richard R. Fay is Distinguished Research Professor of Psy- chology at Loyola University Chicago.
