Tinnitus and insomnia: is hyperarousal the common denominator?
Evidence for hyperarousal caused by enhanced activation of the sympathetic nervous system in insomnia patients and animal models of tinnitus and insomnia show conspicuous similarities in the activation pattern of limbic and autonomous brain regions is reviewed to review the evidence for this hypothesis which may have implications for therapeutic intervention in tinnitis patients with comorbid insomnia.

Tinnitus: Distinguishing between Subjectively Perceived Loudness and Tinnitus-Related Distress
Subjective tinnitus loudness and the potential presence of severe depressivity, anxiety, and somatic symptom severity should be assessed separately from tinn Titus-related distress. Expand
Neural Synchronization Stability in the Tinnitus Decompensation
Neural correlates of psychophysiological tinnitus models in humans may be used for their neurophysiological validation as well as for their refinement and improvement to better understand theExpand
Alterations in Event Related Potentials (ERP) Associated with Tinnitus Distress and Attention
Using single sweep ERP measurements the results of this study show, that attention in high tinnitus related distress patients is captured by theirTinnitus significantly more than in low distress patients, which provides the basis for future neurofeedback based tinn Titus therapies aiming at maximizing the ability to shift attention away from the tinnitis.

Psychoacoustic Tinnitus Loudness and Tinnitus-Related Distress Show Different Associations with Oscillatory Brain Activity
Different clinically relevant tinnitus characteristics show distinctive associations with spontaneous brain oscillatory power in distinctive frequency bands, which suggests to preferably use the reconstructed tinnusitus spectrum to determine psychoacoustic tinnitis loudness. Expand
[Effect of sedation on otoacoustic emissions].
It is concluded that sedation as used in this study must be considered negligible when measuring TEOAE. Expand
Fast detection of wave V in ABRs using a smart single sweep analysis system
This study presents a new approach to the detection of wave V in ABRs using a smart single sweep analysis system that reached a reasonable specificity and sensitivity in a fraction of the measurement time of conventional schemes. Expand
A multidisciplinary systematic review of the treatment for chronic idiopathic tinnitus
A multidisciplinary systematic analysis of the evidence for the different forms of treatment for chronic tinnitus and cognitive behavioural therapy is used to form the basis of an S3 guideline. Expand
Effectiveness of a TEOAE-based screening program. Can a patient-tracking system effectively be organized using modern information technology and central data management?
A TEOAE-based newborn hearing screening system can be organized effectively and a follow-up system as proposed in this paper can also be implemented in AABR (automated auditory brainstem response)-based programs. Expand
[On the interdisciplinary S3 guidelines for the treatment of chronic idiopathic tinnitus].
According to the guidelines, alongside counselling, manualized structured tinnitus-specific cognitive behavioral therapy (tCBT) with a validated treatment manual is available as evidence-based therapy and concurrent treatment of comorbidities, including drug-based treatment, where appropriate.
