Author Index
<P>The inferior colliculus is essential for hearing. Connecting the auditory brain stem to sensory, motor, and limbic systems, the inferior colliculus is a critical midbrain station for auditory processing. Winer and Schreiner's <EM>The Inferior Colliculus</EM> is the first critical, comprehensive reference presenting the current knowledge of the inferior colliculus from a variety of perspectives, including anatomical, physiological, developmental, neurochemical, biophysical, neuroethological and clinical vantage points. Written by leading researchers in the field, the book is an ideal introduction to the inferior colliculus and central auditory processing for clinicians, otolaryngologists, graduate and postgraduate research workers in the auditory and other sensory-motor systems.</P>
<P>About the Editors:</P>
<P><EM>Jeffery A. Winer</EM> is Professor of Neurobiology in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California at Berkeley.</P>
<P><EM>Christoph E. Schreiner</EM> is Professor and Vice-Chair in the Department of Otolaryngology and Member of the Coleman Memorial Laboratory and the W. M. Keck Center for Integrative Neurosciences at the University of California School of Medicine at San Francisco.</P>
<p>Written by leading researchers in the field, the book is an ideal introduction to the inferior colliculus for graduate and postgraduate research workers in the auditory and other sensory-motor systems.</p>
