Read through the original line last night. Very interesting stuff, not only for the subject at hand, but also in consideration of my own situation- that is- having tinntus.
The same almond shaped structure in the brain that figure in this current research- the amygadala- also figures large in tinnitus. Research continues, as well as my interest in the matter.
Interestingly- and not to be dramatic- I can understand this research from a personal point of view. After my onset, I experienced suicidal ideation, not only once, but twice (am doing really well- so no need to worry- not something I even thing about now!). It took some heavy duty anti-anxiety medication to get me out of it, give me the space to process what was happening to me.
The amygdala has a lot to do with this! In tinnitus, the amygdala is understood to be the part of the brain which keeps tinnitus going as though it is a software program that cannot be turned off. A continuous loop as it were.
I really identify with this research. It explains in another way what I had read at other sites about my condition, though, of course, the circumstances are entirely different. Same brain structure- different problem.
Thanks Zerbie, for posting this!
