Jan Dirk Blom, MD, PhD                                                                                                                                 Director of the Clinical Geriatric Residency Training Programme at Parnassia Bavo Group University of Groningen,                                                                                                             Kiwistraat 45 2552 DH, The Hague, The Netherland                                                                

Dear Dr. Jan Dirk Blom:

We are presently in the process of editing one volume of the Handbook of Clinical Neurology entitled  “The human auditory system: fundamental organization and clinical disorders”.

The volume will provide the ultimate reference source for academic clinical neurologists, neurophysiologists, otolaryngologists, audiologists and speech therapists, and serve as the primary reference for workers in all the fields of neuroscience. It will focus on both basic science and clinical advances including new and emerging concepts in the major areas of the auditory system.  Each chapter will include critical discussion of foundational and new knowledge and, in the case of clinically oriented chapters, of prevalence, etiology, genetic, imaging, symptomatology and therapy.

It will be published by Elsevier.

The volume will be part of The Handbook of Clinical Neurology, 3rd Series  edited by Michael Aminoff,  University of California, San Francisco, François Boller, National Institute of Mental Health, Bethesda and Dick Swaab University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The proposed volume “The human auditory system: fundamental organization and clinical disorders” is edited by:

Gastone G. Celesia, MD, FAAN Loyola University of Chicago and Chicago Council on Science and Technology and

Gregory S. Heckok, PhD, Department of Cognitive Sciences University of California Irvine, CA.

We are enclosing the outline of the thirty-seven chapters.                                                        

The book must include recent concepts of auditory hallucinations    

I would like to invite you to contribute chapter 24 on Auditory hallucinations and hallucinosis Your expertise on the subject is well known and deserved.                                                          We hope you will accept this task and I am looking forward to your contribution.                     We will be happy to directly discuss with you this proposal. 

 Feel free to add one or two collaborators to the chapter.                                                             The deadline for the manuscript is April 30, 2013.                                                                             

Best Regards,

Sincerely yours
