New tinnitus research study needs participants

177

Tinnitus is the name of the annoying and persistent ringing or buzzing in the ears that 1 out of 5 people experience. Although it may be quite bothersome and disruptive, tinnitus is rarely a symptom of something more serious.  

Associate Professor Grant Searchfield, Director of the Hearing and Tinnitus Clinic and a Principal Investigator at the Centre for Brain Research, leads a new research study that investigates the potential changes in tinnitus perception following different types of sound stimulation. The main objective of this research clinic is to find a type of sound therapy that can effectively cure tinnitus.  

This team is seeking adult volunteers to participate in a study testing various aspects of how tinnitus is heard.  If you, a family member or one of your friends is experiencing "ringing in the ears" and would like to participate in this exciting new research, we invite you to download our participant information sheet and find out how to be a part of this study.
