Tinnitus - the perception of sound in the ear, in the absence of
external sound - affects around 250 million people worldwide. It
occurs in adults as well as in children, in war veterans and
factory workers, in classical musicians, rockstars, and disc
jockeys. Consequently, a history of recreational, occupational, and
firearm noise exposure may all be associated with an increased
likelihood of acquiring tinnitus.Being a subjective phenomenon,
tinnitus is difficult to measure, though, in the past decade, it
has become the subject of intensive scientific research. Research
in neuroscience has revealed how tinnitus is generated by the brain
when hearing loss occurs, and this research has played a part in
helping us understand the cause, diagnosis, and treatment of this
disorder.The Neuroscience of Tinnitus reviews our current knowledge
of the neural substrates of tinnitus. It draws heavily on the
author's own extensive work in this field, and is divided into two
parts, the first focusing on human models, the second on animal
models. The book describes the search for the neural mechanisms
that underlie the amplification process resulting in tinnitus, and
ways to manage its maladaptive side effects. Based on over 1000
references and the author's ownexperience, both of tinnitus and the
research into its mechanisms, this book is the most comprehensive
single-author book on the market. It is a valuable reference source
for auditory neuroscientists, and also to those in the fields of
audiology, psychology, neurology, and otolaryngology.
