Special Issue in Brain Sciences: Recent Advances in Hearing Impairment
Tinnitus is a symptom and may accompany numerous diseases or be idiopathic. The classification of tinnitus used in the clinics or clinical research usually takes under account the tinnitus continuity (intermittent and constant); tinnitus duration or persistence (short term – acute; and long term - chronic); audiological characteristics (e.g., pitch and loudness); and psychological consequences (e.g. distressing and non-distressing). The comorbid conditions affecting the mental and the physical status of patients are additional classification factors. All of the above may contribute to the heterogeneity of tinnitus, making the therapeutic targeting of tinnitus difficult. Additionally, the methods for measuring therapeutic success or tinnitus-monitoring vary between clinical units, countries, and continents.
This special issue of Brain Sciences is an attempt to improve tinnitus classification and subtyping based on audiological characteristics, comorbid diseases, or the response to therapy. We especially encourage submissions concerning the biomarker discovery in tinnitus.
