About this book

This volume details the essential role of the spiral ganglion neurons. 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 are authored by leading researchers in the field.

Reviews

“This is an excellent monograph in the auditory series about spiral ganglion cells and their loss, degeneration, regrowth, and synaptic to systems physiology. … the book is useful for neurophysiologists, hearng researchers, neuroanatomists, students, fellows, and other investigators.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, April, 2016)
