Pathology of Tinnitus and Hyperacusis-Clinical Implications

Description

Tinnitus is a disorder that affects many people. Insufficient understanding of the pathology of the disorder hinders effective treatment. The key to improving treatments is therefore better understanding of the pathology of the disorder. We are interested in articles that describe human and animal studies of the pathophysiology of tinnitus.

The editors will consider manuscripts that describe and discuss the results of studies in humans and in animals that serve to widen our understanding of the pathology of tinnitus and hyperacusis and their treatment. The editors will also consider overviews of the pathology and treatment of tinnitus and hyperacusis.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Involvement of the ear in tinnitus
  • Role of the auditory cortex (primary or secondary)
  • Animal models of tinnitus
  • Neuromodulation in treatment of tinnitus
  • Pharmacological agents in treatment of tinnitus
  • Altered connections in the brain
  • Tinnitus that is affected by somatosensory stimulation
  • Role of activation of neuroplasticity
  • Role of neural coherence
  • Role of neural hyperactivity
  • Role of the dorsal-medial thalamus
  • Role of the immune system
  • Pathophysiology of hyperacusis
  • How to test the efficacy of treatments
