Subject: early history of Auditory Neuroscience
My name is Karen Chan and I am a graduate student at Northwestern University. I am interested in learning more about the early history of auditory neuroscience and was wondering if anyone could suggest some useful sources? I have found a chapter in Stanley Finger's book Origins of Neuroscience which looks informative, but other than that, I am having difficulties locating other sources.
Any advice or help would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time!
