My previous research has mainly concerned the function of the auditory system but I have also studied the somatosensory and visual systems and I have done research on pain and hyperactive motor disorders. More recently, I have studied neural plasticity in the auditory system and its role in disorders that have tinnitus, hyperacusis and chronic pain as symptoms. I also have studied autism and the involvement of non-classical auditory pathways. I am the author of 13 (single author) books in hearing science, intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring and neuroscience. I am editor or co-editor of seven published books, author or co-author of 200 articles in refereed journals, 104 book chapters. I was Editor-in-Chief (and founder) of the international journal, Hearing Research (1978-2005), and member of the Editorial Board of other international journals.
I am interested in teaching and I have developed new courses and have been writing books that are used in teaching. I teach courses I have developed such as "Biology of Pain", Sensory Systems", Neural Plastic and Disorders of the Nervous System, Functional Human Neuroanatomy" and 2 curses in Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring". I am interested in the role of neural plasticity in disorders of the nervous system and I teach a course on that topic that I developed. I also teach courses in the physiological basis for intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring.
I am involved in tinnitus research through my involvement with the international research organization "Tinnitus Research Initiative" (TRI). I organized the TRI Annual Conference in 2010 here in Dallas, and I am Chairman of the TRI Foundation.
My research concerns the function of the normal and the pathologic ear and the auditory nervous system. I am particularly interested in neural plasticity and its role in tinnitus, hyperacusis and phonophobia. A specific aim of my research is to explore the possibilities of affecting these disorders by pharmacologic manipulation of GABAergic neurons in the inferior colliculus. Closely associated with these studies is research that focuses on the role of the non-classical auditory system in disorders of the auditory system.
