Drs. Bass and Sisneros are both internationally recognized experts in the field of steroid-dependent plasticity of the auditory system. Together they have published high-impact papers on the adaptive hormone dependent plasticity of the auditory system, and more generally in the field of neuroethology and acoustic communication. Together they bring to the volume unique scientific expertise on the effects of hormones on hearing and they will ensure the timely progression of the editorial process
