Keypoints

  1. 1.

    Structural differences in brain morphology have been detected in individuals with tinnitus compared to control groups.

     
  2. 2.

    These structural alterations involve auditory and limbic brain structures, suggesting that tinnitus may arise when alterations in both auditory and limbic brain structures occur.

     
  3. 3.

    It has yet to be clarified whether the observed structural changes represent causes or consequences of tinnitus.
