The limbic system is affected by sensory stimuli, including stimulation from the auditory system. Not only, neurons and synapses from regions like the hippocampus and the amygdala can be affected by auditory stimulation and some pathologies of the auditory system caused by acoustic trauma, as for example tinnitus, have a strong limbic component. Recently we demonstrated that chronic hig...
Salicylate intoxication leads to the development of tinnitus in humans and experimental animals. Hyperactivity in the Dorsal Cochlear Nucleus (DCN) is related to the development of tinnitus, and acute applications of salicylate increase the firing of fusiform (principal) neurons of DCN in vivo. However, both the mechanisms of hyperactivity in the DCN after tinnitus and salicylate poison...
