Subject: new book From: at <BOBCEPVAX.SUSSEX.AC.UK> Date: Thu, 11 Mar 1993 11:20:51 -0500
I would like to use this list to announce the publication of a book which should be of interest to hearing researchers from a number of disciplines. The book consists of a number of refereed articles, which were presented at a meeting held at the Royal Society (London) in December 1991. The authors, whose research interests range from hair-cell biology through neural physiology and psychophysics to music perception, were all invited speakers at the conference, and the quality of the contributions reflects this. The book is published in the U.K. by Oxford University Press, who also have offices in New York. Furthermore, it's a bargain at 35 pounds, and I assume that the U.S. price is also fairly cheap. Further details, including a table of contents, follow.... Bob Carlyon PROCESSING OF COMPLEX SOUNDS BY THE AUDITORY SYSTEM Edited by R.P. Carlyon, C.J. Darwin, and I.J.
