Tinnitus: causes and clinical management
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of a corresponding external acoustic stimulus. With prevalence ranging from 10% to 15%, tinnitus is a common disorder. Many people habituate to theExpand

Structural brain alterations following 5 days of intervention: dynamic aspects of neuroplasticity.
Activation-dependent brain plasticity in humans on a structural level has been demonstrated in adults after 3 months of training a visio-motor skill. The exact timescale of usage-dependent structuralExpand

Treatment of chronic tinnitus with repeated sessions of prefrontal transcranial direct current stimulation: outcomes from an open-label pilot study
Tinnitus is the perception of sound in the absence of an environmental sound source. Abnormal activity in central auditory pathways is considered as the neuronal correlate of tinnitus. However, thereExpand

The impact of auditory cortex activity on characterizing and treating patients with chronic tinnitus – first results from a PET study
Conclusion: Unilaterally increased metabolic activity within the primary auditory cortex (PAC) represents a robust finding in tinnitus patients. Targeting these hyperactive areas with image-guidedExpand
