About this book


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
