      Tinnitus Since:
      07/2007
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Ear trauma, ototoxicity
      Not directly tinnitus related but hearing related. I've at least noticed some difficulty with localization after my tinnitus onset so I think this is worth a read.

      Summary:
      One of the enduring puzzles of hearing loss is the decline in a person's ability to determine where a sound originates, a key survival faculty that allows animals to pinpoint the location of danger, prey and group members. Researchers are proposing a model based on a more dynamic neural code.
