Jos J. Eggermont

Abstract

This book examines tinnitus from the viewpoint of a neuroscientist with a long background in translational research. Therefore the book focuses on the understanding of the mechanisms that underlie tinnitus and is based on data-driven approaches to characterize its properties in humans and in animal models. It is hoped that a better and coherent understanding of the findings from the various neuroscience methods, ranging from brain imaging, electrophysiology, and quantifying the subjective aspects of tinnitus, to molecular biology and genetic aspects, will lead to more and better science driven ...
