  • 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.
