The tinnitus talk forum (tinnitus hub) is the biggest internet forum for tinnitus patients.
Presentations from Guest, Keynote, Invited and Workshop Session speakers are available on the program page of the conference website.
Article: THE SOUNDS OF SILENCEScience-based tinnitus therapeutics are finally coming into their own.
Welcome to the first issue of the Action on Hearing Loss Translational Research Initiative for Hearing (TRIH) newsletter. The purpose of this newsletter is to boost awareness of opportunities in translational hearing research and share updates and information on preclinical and clinical research to develop therapeutics to restore hearing or silence tinnitus. In the lead up to the 2nd International Conference on Hyperacusis (July 09-10, 2015, London, UK) the ICH2 NEWSLETTER will be updating you with news relevant to hyperacusis plus interviews with experts, patients as well as news from around the world to help put research outcomes into perspective. New faculty positions are available through the MnDRIVE – Brain Conditions Program at the University of Minnesota. The candidates will find a highly collaborative environment with leading neural engineering faculty, one of the top imaging facilities in the world and a strong medical device industry surrounding the University. The Tinnitus Research Initiative has just released a smartphone app that allows to track the tinnitus during the everyday routine. The Online Journal Audiology Worldnews published a summary of the speech that Berthold Langguth held on the TINNET COST action BM1306 during the 8th International TRI Tinnitus Conference from 10-13 March in Auckland, New Zealand. The proposal “Better Understanding the Heterogeneity of Tinnitus to Improve and Develop New Treatments – TINNET” has been approved by the COST Committee of Senior Officials.
We are now inviting tinnitus researchers from as many european countries as possible to participate in the project.
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is immediately available to study the function and plasticity of non-auditory connections to the auditory brain stem.
The Lab for Auditory & Integrative Neuroscience at the School of Behavioral and Brain Science, The University of Texas at Dallas seeks to fill in Postdoctoral Research positions in Neurosciences and Communication Disorders with a focus on auditory perception and disorders.
The articles in these renowned journals reflect both the relevance of tinnitus as a health and research topic, and the increasing quality of basic and clinical tinnitus research during the last years. The fascinating city of Valencia with its long historic tradition fused with its futuristic physiognomy, represented a unique venue for this year's TRI meeting. The Textbook of Tinnitus was one of the top 25 percent most downloaded eBooks in the relevant Springer eBook Collection in 2013. Initiated and edited by Aage Møller, Berthold Langguth, Tobias Kleinjung and Dirk de Ridder and authored by over 100 tinnitus experts this comprehensive textbook covers in 96 chapters the diagnosis and the therapy of tinnitus. AuthorMapper is an online tool for visualizing scientific research, that enables document discovery based on author locations and geographic maps.


AuthorMapper searches the Springer Journals and Springer Books collections and offers access to nearly one hundred fifty years of content available on SpringerLink. At Sound Options Tinnitus Treatments, we provide a sound therapy that is customized for the individual tinnitus sufferer. We input this information into software that can capture the brain changes that scientists think are related to tinnitus.
Research indicates the importance of taking into account  the potential hearing loss of tinnitus sufferers [1]. While there are a range of potential causes of tinnitus, the most common cause of tinnitus is hearing loss [2] or exposure to noise [3].
Brain or neural plasticity is a mechanism in our brain that, over time, can change the way we process information.
Sound Options has dedicated years of research to develop a novel sound therapy that takes advantage of brain plasticity in order to undo the brain changes that contribute to each individual’s tinnitus.
You can read more about our ongoing clinical studies here to better understand how we are testing the benefits of our sound therapy. Bonnie graduated from Trinity College Dublin where she completed a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature. Bonnie has extensive knowledge of audit and compliance policies and procedures and ensures the correct guidelines are adhered to. This project will help to improve our knowledge about tinnitus, the treatment of the tinnitus patients and increases the already fruitful cooperation among tinnitus researches in Europe any further. Winfried Schlee as the new Scientific Research Coordinator of the Tinnitus Research Initiative Foundation.
The successful candidate will do research in the area of auditory neuroscience with a focus on patients with tinnitus, musical hallucinosis, hyperacusis or congenital deafness using neuroimaging techniques such as high density EEG and rsfMRI as well non-invasive neuromodulation techniques such as TMS and tDCS.
Inspired by Santiago Calatrava?s architecture, the meeting started with a dream: The dream to cure tinnitus. Users who have not full text access can view parts of the ebook through the free LookInside service of Springer. Using your specific information, our software can predict which brain changes can contribute to your tinnitus, and how to minimize or undo them.
Because hearing loss has been shown to contribute to tinnitus, even if it was not the initial cause, it is important to take it into account when looking to treat tinnitus with a sound therapy. While this is generally beneficial, in some cases brain plasticity can lead to unintended results.
Every tinnitus sufferer perceives a unique sound because the brain changes that cause their tinnitus are different from person to person. While our treatment is enjoyable and easy to use, the software that customizes each person’s tinnitus treatment uses state-of-the-art technology and processing.


Engineer ND, Riley JR, Seale JD, Vrana WA, Shetake JA, Sudanagunta SP, Borland MS, and Kilgard MP (2011). She has delivered and supported a range of successful processes to improve quality assurance and to ensure data can be both reconciled and validated. The Tinnitus Research Initative is mentioned as an example how private donors try to approach this neglected field in order to attract the industry and public funding. In addition, when a person has issues hearing certain frequencies, a treatment that does not take this into account may not be beneficial, especially if the tinnitus is high-pitched [1]. Neuroscientists believe that brain plasticity plays an important role in the development and persistence of tinnitus [4, 5]. As such, one-size-fits-all (not customized) treatments have not been effective in diminishing or eliminating tinnitus in the past [8]. Each sound therapy package is processed using advanced algorithms that address a range of tinnitus causes in order to design a package for an individual tinnitus sufferer that will most likely assist them. Tinnitus with a normal audiogram: physiological evidence for hidden hearing loss and computational model. Intracortical circuits amplify sound-evoked activity in primary auditory cortex following systemic injection of salicylate in the rat. Changes in spontaneous neural activity immediately after an acoustic trauma: implications for neural correlates of tinnitus. Can Homeostatic Plasticity in Deafferented Primary Auditory Cortex Lead to Traveling Waves of Excitation? When she first joined the unit, she worked on the multi-centre clinical trial QUIET-1 co-ordinating recruitment and trial activities, whilst maintaining the investigator site file.
At Sound Options, we developed a tinnitus assessment tool that is used to characterize a person’s tinnitus. Therefore, it is not only what is happening in the ear that matters: changes in the auditory brain are very important. This assessment gives our software a complete picture of how tinnitus may be caused within each individual’s auditory brain. We have taken advantage of this knowledge and the current understanding of the different neural correlates of tinnitus (i.e. Our solution includes addressing some of the brain changes that much more invasive treatment strategies have targeted [9] with our enjoyable and easy to use sound therapy.
