New and promising tinnitus and hyperacusis therapies/treatments:
National Institute of Health:
"Rebooting the brain helps stop the ring of tinnitus..."
-Dealing with some new finds involving electrode stimulation of the vagus nerve in the neck. Not like other therapies -- not masking or hiding the tinnitus... actually returning the brain to the neurological state that it was in before the onset of tinnitus.
The Wall Street Journal:
"Turing Off the Ringing Sound"
-Dealing mostly with rTMS, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and cognitive behaioral therapy.
Acoustic CR Neuromodulation
-aimed at "unlearning" the tinnitus sound. Using a complex mathematic algorithm as a basis, the device works towards disrupting the pathologically hyperactive synchronicity of the nerve cells in the auditory cortex - through non-invasive, targeted acoustic signals.
