About the Book

Otoacoustic Emissions: Principles, Procedures, and Protocols, Second Edition is a readable yet comprehensive source of information on otoacoustic emissions (OAEs). OAEs now play an important role in hearing screening and the clinical assessment of children and adults. The text begins with a succinct overview of OAEs and a historical description of their discovery and emergence as a clinical tool.

Otoacoustic Emissions distills in 10 chapters the latest information on OAEs from basic research to clinical applications. The book is concise, but comprehensive, and covers the essentials of the subject from innovative and up-to-date perspectives. The second edition features updates across all chapters, including current research findings and changing perspectives on OAE taxonomy. Important information is highlighted with new and updated illustrations throughout the book.

The material covered in the book is appropriate for intermediate and advanced students, and ideal for practicing audiologists. With a focus on practical information needed by the clinical audiologist and an eye to technological developments, authors Dhar and Hall provide an up-to-date, straightforward, and clinically focused source of information on OAEs.

About The Authors

Sumitrajit Dhar, PhD, is Professor of Audiology and Hearing Science and Chair of the Roxelyn and Richard Pepper Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Sumit studied at the University of Mumbai, Utah State University, and Purdue University. At Northwestern University, Sumit teaches courses in the science and practice of audiology. His laboratory works on the origin and propagation of otoacoustic emissions, their clinical applications, and their modulation by the efferent neural network. More recently, his laboratory has also started working on hearing health care design and delivery. Work in Sumit’s laboratory has been funded continuously by the National Institutes of Health since 2003. He has also received funding from various foundations and private agencies such as the Knowles Hearing Center, Starkey, American Hearing Research Foundation, American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation, and Deafness Research Foundation.

James W. Hall III, PhD, is an internationally recognized audiologist with over 40 years of clinical, teaching, research, and administrative experience. He received his bachelor’s degree in biology from American International College, his master’s degree in speech pathology from Northwestern University, and his PhD in audiology from Baylor College of Medicine under the direction of James Jerger. During his career, Dr. Hall has held clinical, academic, and administrative positions at major medical centers, and leadership roles in the American Academy of Audiology. He is the author of over 200 peer-reviewed publications, invited articles, and book chapters and also 10 textbooks. Dr. Hall now holds academic appointments as Professor at Salus University and the University of Hawaii.
