Tinnitus Frustration


Does tinnitus annoyance depend on moment-to-moment variability of frustration? Preliminary answers from a qualitative study with a model of tinnitus tolerance: 


Deborah Hall3Prof. Deborah Hall, Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre Deputy Director, Hearing theme lead and Outcome Measures for Clinical Trials lead, has been awarded a Senior Investigator position with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). This is in recognition of her outstanding leadership of patient and people-based research within the NIHR Faculty. NIHR Senior Investigators are among the most prominent and prestigious researchers funded by the NIHR and are appointed through annual competitions informed by the advice of an international panel of experts.

AnnickDecreased Speech-In-Noise Understanding in Young Adults with Tinnitus

Annick Gilles et al. The audiogram looks normal, otoacoustic emissions are normal, auditory brain stem response are normal - but the tinnitus keeps on ringing. How is it possible? It's called "hidden hearing loss". There is damage to the hearing system but it is not detected by standard measures. The researcher Gilles and colleagues present a study showing that the speech-in-noise test can detect the difference.

Winfried SchleeMeasuring the Moment-to-Moment Variability to Tinnitus: The TrackYourTinnitus Smart Phone App

Winny Schlee et al. The perception of tinnitus can fluctuate. Sometimes you hear it very loud. Sometimes it is low. The TrackYourTinnitus smartphone app allows you to measure the fluctuation of your tinnitus and understand it better. At the same time you are supporting tinnitus research by contributing your data for the global fight against tinnitus. Learn more about the app and the underlying theoretical concept at https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnagi.2016.00294/full

We are proud to present the first article of the European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research titled: "Innovations in Doctoral Training and Research on Tinnitus- The European School on Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research (ESIT) Perspective".

All ESIT supervisors have worked together to underline the exclusiveness of ESIT as an interdisciplinary scientific tinnitus project explaining it's background, purposes and objectives.
Further the reader is given details about the project management, its components and work packages and how we manage to provide a wide interdisciplinary network of sciences related to tinnitus.

Thomas FullerDifferent Teams, Same Conclusions? A Systematic Review of Existing Clinical Guidelines for the Assessment and Treatment of Tinnitus in Adults

Thomas Fuller et al. A large team of tinnitus experts from different TINNET countries came together to compare the existing treatment guidelines for tinnitus. Read about what is similar - and read about the differences at https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2017.00206/full

BildTinnitus Patients with Comorbid Headaches: The Influence of Headache Type and Laterality on Tinnitus Characteristics

Berthold Langguth et al. The analysis of a large patient sample shows: Patients with headache and tinnitus have higher tinnitus-related distress, lower quality of life and more comorbidities. Read more about this topic at http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fneur.2017.00440/full


The Effect of Physical Therapy Treatment in Patients with Subjective Tinnitus: A Systematic Review

Sarah Michiels et al. The central auditory system has many entries. The first prominent entry is the ear. The second prominent entry is the neck and the jaw. Abnormal nervous activity from these body parts can also have an effect on the auditory system and can trigger or influence tinnitus. Physical therapy can help in this case - but systematic research on it is poor. Michiels and colleagues summarize the current state at https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnins.2016.00545/full
