Conference paper


Endogenous auditory sensations occur without simultaneous reception of an external acoustic stimulus. They can occur under physiological conditions, but can also be associated with pathological processes. A commonly known sensation of the second kind is tinnitus, or ringing in the ear, a frequent symptom which is often associated with several hearing disorders. A sensation of the first kind is the auditory afterimage. Contrary to the vision system in which after-images have been known for a long time, auditory stimulation was, in general, not assumed to lead to clear-cut after-effects. An exception is the exposure to acoustic overstimulation which has been known to lead to a temporary threshold shift which is sometimes accompanied by an auditory sensation, tinnitus.
