Deciphering Tinnitus from the Shoulders of Giants: A Kuhnian Shift may be Required
Received Date: Aug 07, 2015 / Accepted Date: Aug 20, 2015 / Published Date: Aug 27, 2015
The mechanism contributing to the causation of tinnitus continues to evade us. It is unlikely that our current thinking is progressing in the right direction. The literature on the subject is mounting but with no real insights. Perhaps we are all barking up the wrong tree!
The objective of this paper is to introduce, if possible, a paradigm shift that may produce a different trend in thinking and hopefully change our direction and lines of research.
This is attempted by employing the basic technique of logical thinking aided by modern computer logic and also incorporating neuroscience, artificial intelligence, psychology and philosophy. It is admitted that this hypothesis is subject to confirmational empiricism.
Keywords: Subjective tinnitus, Tinnitus mechanisms
