Subjective tinnitus is a sensation of sound without an external source. There is no clear understanding of the cause and pathology of tinnitus.<br/><br/>Literature suggests a combination of deafferentation of the tonotopic map , the Bayesian brain model, and the triple mode network, creating one combined hypothesis for tinnitus pathology. Based...
