      acoustic trauma

      I just realized, if you do a search on the Frontiers website with the term "tinnitus", 9 different "Research Topics" appear.

      I mean this research is scattered. We need to have just one research topic (if we want it to win the next award).

      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Functional magnetic resonance imaging of enhanced central auditory gain and electrophysiological correlates in a behavioral model of hyperacusis


      • In hyperacusis, sounds are perceived as exceedingly loud, frightening, or painful.
      • Prevalence of hyperacusis approaches 10%.
      • Sound-evoked fMRI developed to locate abnormal brain activity in hyperacusis rats.
      • Enhanced central auditory gain observed and confirmed electrophysiologically.
      • Animal fMRI advances basic research and connects human fMRI data with animal data.
