PTSD is a psychiatric disorder which can develop following exposure to a traumatic event. It is characterized by altered fear-related learning and extinction and has dramatic consequences on social life of patients.
Hearing loss is the most prevalent inner ear disorder. It may be due to insufficient sound conduction from the outer to the inner ear, or much frequently to damage to the hair cells and neurons in the cochlea or to the auditory nerve.
