Tinnitus is the perception of a sound when no external sound is present. The severity of tinnitus varies but it can be debilitating for many patients. With more than 100 million people with chronic tinnitus worldwide, tinnitus is a disorder of high prevalence. The increased knowledge in the neuroscience of tinnitus has led to the emergence of promising treatment approaches, but no uniformly effective treatment for tinnitus has been identified. The large patient heterogeneity is considered to be the major obstacle for the development of effective treatment strategies against tinnitus. This eBook provides an inter- and multi-disciplinary collection of tinnitus research with the aim to better understand tinnitus heterogeneity and improve therapeutic outcomes.

The origins of tinnitus and the development of effective treatments to treat tinnitus have puzzled scientists and clinicians for centuries. Now ground breaking research is beginning to unlock its secrets. The Behavioral Neuroscience of Tinnitus provides critical and comprehensive discussions of the most recent developments in behavioral neuroscience research of tinnitus. Each chapter represents the most important contemporary account of the subject, with an emphasis on preclinical and clinical trials for the development of new diagnostics and therapeutics. New and emerging innovative approaches are covered whenever possible. Six topics are discussed in detail in this volume, which provide new insights in the etiology and mechanisms of tinnitus, new biomarkers towards objective and reliable diagnosis of tinnitus, pharmacological approaches towards curing tinnitus, bioengineering advances towards developing effective medical devices, as well as the latest in psychotherapy methods. The reviews in the volume expose researchers and clinicians, both new and experienced, to exciting advancements and state-of-the-art developments from preeminent researchers in the field of tinnitus.

Tinnitus and Hyperacusis: Facts, Theories, and Clinical Implications provides a critical overview of the burgeoning field of research studying the underlying mechanisms and potential treatments for these two disorders. The book begins with an overview of the etiology and genetics behind tinnitus and hyperacusis. The author proposes two parallel neural pathways underlying these conditions and provides a basis for connecting animal research to human research. Neurotransmitters, neuromodulators and immediate early genes are discussed. The book also provides a detailed comparison of about a dozen models aiming at explaining tinnitus and hyperacusis, including the neurophysiological model, the neural synchrony model and the cortical map reorganization and filling-in model. Potential treatments of tinnitus and hyperacusis, from behavioral to non-invasive neuromodulation are discussed. This book is written for clinical neuroscientists, audiologists, neuro-otologists, neurologists and clinical psychologists. Describes etiology and genetics of tinnitus and hyperacusis Compares animal data and human findings in activity of the limbic system Discusses ten models of tinnitus and hyperacusis Presents overview of treatments of behavioral to non-invasive neuromodulation
The Senses: A Comprehensive Reference, Second Edition, is a comprehensive reference work covering the range of topics that constitute current knowledge of the neural mechanisms underlying the different senses. This important work provides the most up-to-date, cutting-edge, comprehensive reference combining volumes on all major sensory modalities in one set.
