Effect of Different Sounds on the Treatment Outcome of Tinnitus Retraining Therapy
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the therapeutic effect of three different types of sounds on tinnitus patients undergoing tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT).
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Epilepsy
TMS has provided important insight into the pathophysiological substrate of human epilepsies and emerges as a valuable tool with diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic potential.
A Comparison Study of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation for Tinnitus Treatment in an Asian Population
The present study has revalidated the efficacy and safety of rTMS for improving tinnitus up to 4 weeks post-treatment in Asians.
Tinnitus study signals new advance in understanding link between exposure to loud sounds and hearing loss
Leicester research reveals why hearing loss is correlated with auditory signals failing to get transmitted along the auditory nerve. A research team investigating tinnitus, from the University of Leicester, has revealed new insights into the link between the exposure to loud sounds and hearing loss.
Safety and Efficacy of Vagus Nerve Stimulation Paired with Tones for the Treatment of Tinnitus: A Case Series
VNS paired with tones excluding the tinnitus-matched frequency is safe and feasible. It seems to exert a beneficial effect in nonmedication-taking patients, both with regard to the perceived sound and the distress.
Synergistic Effects of Noradrenergic Modulation With Atomoxetine and 10 Hz Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Norepinephrine (NE) has been shown to play a crucial role in neuronal plasticity in the healthy and injured human brain. Atomoxetine (ATX) and other NE reuptake inhibitors have been shown to increase excitability in different systems and to influence learning processes.
A Model of TMS-induced I-waves in Motor Cortex
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) allows to manipulate neural activity non-invasively, and much research is trying to exploit this ability in clinical and basic research settings.
Tinnitus Common in Teens
One in five high school students has permanent tinnitus, a new study shows, and few take measures to protect their ears from loud music.
Tinnitus Is Common in Children With and Without Hearing Impairment
Forty percent of children with normal hearing reported some form of tinnitus.
A Primer on the Treatment of Schizophrenia Through Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
As a treatment, repetitive TMS (rTMS) has extensive evidence for efficacy in mood disorders[2,3] through the modulation of cortical excitability, inhibition and plasticity. In recent years, several studies have also explored the utility of rTMS as a treatment tool in schizophrenia with promising results.
