Controversies in central auditory processing disorder.


Controversies in central auditory processing disorder.

Ed. by Anthony T. Cacace and Dennis J. McFarland.

Plural Publishing


353 pages




Cacace, an audiologist who teaches communication sciences and otolaryngology at Wayne State U., and McFarland, a research scientist at the New York State Department of Health, assemble 17 articles on central auditory processing disorders (CAPD) by clinicians and scientists from the US, Europe, and Israel working in communications sciences, neurosurgery, and other areas. These researchers put forth different perspectives on issues and controversies in the field, such as with modality specificity, ways to define auditory cortex through magnetic resonance imaging, advanced concepts in anatomy and physiology, learning and plasticity, tinnitus, auditory neuropathy, and musical perception and its disorders. Others critique the conceptualization and diagnosis of the disorders, but none focus on treatment or define tests for diagnosis.
