Rebooting the brain helps stop the ring of tinnitus in rats – 3
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Tinnitus, or tinnitus, is typically a ringing in the ear and is often a symptom of hearing loss. Dr. Roger Miller at that National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders says it’s currently incurable.
Miller: There are some behavior therapies that will help the patients learn how to deal with and find a way of making it less bothersome. And those are really quite good, but we’d like to have an actual cure.
Narrator: Now a new therapy has been discovered involving a nerve in the neck, which is not typically associated with hearing.
