Understanding tinnitus and treating patients with tinnitus must involve many disciplines of basic science and clinical practice. The book provides comprehensive coverage of a wide range of topics related to tinnitus including its pathophysiology, etiology and treatment. The chapters are written by researchers and clinicians who are active in the areas of basic science such as neurophysiology and neuroanatomy and in clinical specialties of psychology, psychiatry, audiology and otolaryngology.

* Comprehensive coverage of the pathology and cause of tinnitus including genetics
* Hyperacusis, phonophobia and other abnormalities in perception of sounds
* The role of neural plasticity in tinnitus
