Re: AUDITORY Digest - 4 Oct 2009 to 5 Oct 2009 (#2009-228)

In fact, tinnitus has been studied with MEG for quite some time, e.g. [1]. Also, I'm not sure how one would explain the suppression of tinnitus after cochlear implantation even when the implant is turned off [2, 3] using a purely central/cortical origin hypothesis.

Dear List,

What do you people think about this?

It seems to me that if Tinnitus were typically generated in the cochlea (there is lots of evidence for this), then there would be a place in the brain that would hear this, just like any other sound coming into the cochlea, since its wired to the brain.

Then some people come along and see the signal in the brain, and conclude, that tinnitus is generated in the brain.

Is there more to the logic than this? I hope so.
