Cerebral Processing of Emotionally Loaded Acoustic Signals by Tinnitus Patients

This study supports the hypothesis about the existence of a tinnitus-specific brain network. Such a network could respond to any acoustic stimuli by activating limbic areas involved in stress reactivity and emotional processing and by reducing activation of areas responsible for attention and acoustic filtering (thalamus, frontal regions), possibly reinforcing negative effects of tinnitus.Audiol Neurotol 2016;21:80-87 (Source: Audiology and Neurotology)
