ABOUT THIS BOOK
- Focuses on neural mechanisms of tinnitus and its behavioral consequences
- Covers research and potential therapies in humans
- Discusses animal research that has led to increases in our understanding of the disease and its underlying mechanisms
Tinnitus is a prevalent hearing disease in humans, affecting 15% of the population. At present there is no cure for tinnitus, and treatment options are limited. Recognizing the significance of tinnitus to hearing, as well as it serving as a window into the basic science of understanding of the hearing process, Tinnitus provides a broad overview of the topic. The volume focuses on neural mechanisms of tinnitus and its behavioral consequences. The book is divided into two parts to address systematically the current issues in tinnitus research
- Historical Reflections on Current Issues in Tinnitus- Jos J. Eggermont and Fan-Gang Zeng
- Behavioral Tests for Tinnitus in Animals- Henry E. Heffner and Rickye S. Heffner
- Molecular Mechanism of Tinnitus - Marlies Knipper, Marcus Müller, and Ulrike Zimmermann
- The Cochlea and the Auditory Nerve as a Primary Source of Tinnitus- Régis Nouvian, Michel Eybalin, and Jean-Luc Puel
- Dorsal Cochlear Nucleus: Somatosensory–Auditory Interactions in Tinnitus- Susanne Dehmel, Seth D. Koehler, and Susan E. Shore
- The Inferior Colliculus: Involvement in Hyperactivity and Tinnitus- Donald Robertson and Wilhelmina Mulders
- Cortex: Way Station or Locus of the Tinnitus Percept?- Jos J. Eggermont
- Human Brain Imaging of Tinnitus - Jennifer R. Melcher
- The Psychophysics of Tinnitus - Brian C. J. Moore
- Stimulating the Auditory System to Treat Tinnitus: From Alleviating the Symptoms to Addressing the Causes - Arnaud J. Noreña
- Treatment: Pharmacological, Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, Epidural Stimulation, and Deep Brain Stimulation - Berthold Langguth, Dirk De Ridder, Tobias Kleinjung, and Ana Belén Elgoyhen
About the Series:
