- coherent tinnitus
- A term used to denote a subtype of *tinnitus (i.e. 'ringing in the ears') presenting as a single, centred, auditory percept. Regarding its patho-physiology, coherent tinnitus is associated primarily with a single central lesion, or, alternatively, with bilateral peripheral lesions producing similar * nonverbal auditory hallucinations. The term coherent tinnitus is used in opposition to the term * incoherent tinnitus.ReferencesHenry, J.A., Dennis, K.C., Schechter, M.A. (2005).
