The development and clinical success of auditory prostheses rests, in part, on our knowledge of the structure and function of the auditory system. This chapter reviews the mammalian auditory pathway, placing considerable emphasis on the anatomy and physiology of the cochlea. This background is necessary to understand the pathological implications of a sensorineural hearing loss and its amelioration via an auditory prosthesis.
