Podcast: Revisiting a Friend of Tinnitus Talk — Dr. Josef Rauschecker

Dr. Josef Rauschecker was our first ever guest on the Tinnitus Talk Podcast. In that episode he describes his famous ‘gating’ theory of tinnitus. This theory poses that while neural ‘noise’ may arise in the ear and lower brain regions due to hearing loss, this noise is typically cancelled out further up the auditory pathway; at least, for most people, but not for those experiencing tinnitus.
