My new brain column: Tinnitus, from ears to consciousness

My new column for DiscoverMy new column for Discover is about tinnitus, the ringing in the ears that affects a third of all people at some point in their lives. While tinnitus may seem to like it’s in our ears,  its source actually lies deep within our brains–possibly spread across the networks of neurons that make us consciously aware of our lives. The better scientists can appreciate its full reach, the better they may be able to treat it. Check it out.

[Update: Link fixed to take you to the first page of the column, not the second.]
