Behavioral Evidence for Possible Simultaneous Induction of Hyperacusis and Tinnitus Following Intense Sound Exposure
Many human subjects suffering from chronic tinnitus also suffer from hyperacusis, a heightened perception of loudness at moderate to intense sound levels. While numerous studies suggest that animalsExpand

Comparison and contrast of noise-induced hyperactivity in the dorsal cochlear nucleus and inferior colliculus
Induction of hyperactivity in the central auditory system is one of the major physiological hallmarks of animal models of noise-induced tinnitus. Although hyperactivity occurs at various levels ofExpand

Noise-induced hyperactivity in the inferior colliculus: its relationship with hyperactivity in the dorsal cochlear nucleus.
Intense noise exposure causes hyperactivity to develop in the mammalian dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) and inferior colliculus (IC). It has not yet been established whether the IC hyperactivity isExpand

Suppression of noise-induced hyperactivity in the dorsal cochlear nucleus following application of the cholinergic agonist, carbachol
Increased spontaneous firing (hyperactivity) is induced in fusiform cells of the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) following intense sound exposure and is implicated as a possible neural correlate ofExpand

Evidence of activity-dependent plasticity in the dorsal cochlear nucleus, in vivo, induced by brief sound exposure
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the immediate effects of acute exposure to intense sound on spontaneous and stimulus-driven activity in the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN). WeExpand
