Welcome to the Special Interest Group (SIG) 6 Perspectives on Hearing and Hearing Disorders: Research and Diagnostics. The theme of this issue is “Head Trauma and the Eighth Nerve Senses: Inner Ear to Cortex.” With the recent reports of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) among professional and amateur athletes and the continuing reports of this injury to our military personnel in Afghanistan and Iraq, this is a timely topic for our profession. The contributing authors are Kathy R. Vander Werff from Syracuse University; Kristin N. Mills from East Carolina University and Sherri M. Jones from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln; and Kim S. Schairer from VA Medical Center, Mountain Home, TN, and East Tennessee State University. We are very grateful to the authors for their time and effort in helping to bring this issue into existence. We also thank our Editor, Richard Wilson; our reviewers; and our Continuing Education (CE) Content Manager, Pamela Jackson. Our Perspectives self-study exams, which offer an easy way to earn CEUs, are one the main benefits of SIG affiliation, and it would be impossible without the concerted efforts of these individuals.
