Abstract

 

There are limited treatment options for successful management of tinnitus, which is highly prevalent worldwide. The pathogenetic role of auditory cortex activation changes in tinnitus has been reported by various functional studies that suggest that the emerging neuromodulation techniques may pave way toward better treatment response. The current case report depicts the use of functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) based on the assessment of improvement in auditory cortex functioning in chronic tinnitus by transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
