Abstract During the past several years, the rapid development of neuroimaging techniques has contributed greatly in the noninvasive imaging studies of tinnitus. The aim of the present study was to explore the brain anatomical alterations in patients with right-sided unilateral pulsatile tinnitus (PT) in the early stage of PT symptom using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) analysis. Twenty-four patients with right-sided pulsatile tinnitus and 24 age- and gender-matched normal controls were recruited to this study. Structural image data preprocessing was performed using VBM8 toolbox. Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) sc...

Four patients presented with blurring and transient obscuration of vision with papilledema, headache, tinnitus, and vomiting. On magnetic resonance venography and digital subtraction angiography, chronic transverse sinus thrombosis was diagnosed for which patients underwent endovascular interventio...

Abstract Hyperactive dysfunction may affect all cranial nerves in the posterior fossa. According to literature review and personal experience, hemifacial spasm was found to be associated not only with the most frequent cranial nerve syndromes, namely: trigeminal neuralgia, vago-glossopharyngeal neuralgia or VIIIth nerve disturbances manifested by vertigo, tinnitus, hearing decrease, but also with rarer syndromes like geniculate neuralgia, masticatory spasm etc. Also, a number of publications have pointed out the relatively high incidence of the coexistence of hemifacial spasm and systemic blood hypertension; both ...

Publication date: 21 May 2018 Source:Neuroscience, Volume 379 Author(s): Samer Masri, Li S. Zhang, Hao Luo, Edward Pace, Jinsheng Zhang, Shaowen Bao Blast exposure can cause various auditory disorders including tinnitus, hyperacusis, and other central auditory processing disorders. While this is suggestive of pathologies in the central auditory system, the impact of blast exposure on central auditory processing remains poorly understood. Here we examined the effects of blast shockwaves on acoustic response properties and the tonotopic frequency map in the auditory cortex. We found that multiunits recorded from the auditor...

Authors: Watts KL, Welles R, Zurek P Abstract The Warfighter's Hearing Health Instructional Primer (WHHIP) is a supplemental tool for military hearing conservation programs (MHCPs) and can be accessed by the warfighter on his/her own personal mobile phone. A gap was identified for a supplement to MHCPs that is easily accessible by warfighters to improve hearing health knowledge. The WHHIP aims to instruct the warfighter in best hearing health practices. To do so, four activities are included: Learn, Demos, HPD Check, and Glossary. Learn and Glossary allow the warfighter to scroll through various informational topic...
