Tinnitus is a prevalent issue for veterans who are proportionally more hearing-impaired than the civilian population.
This study will be conducted as three concurrent projects designed to develop an efficient clinical technique to quantify tinnitus perception:
(1)Laboratory development of the automated technique for comprehensive tinnitus quantification;
(2)Development of a technique to test for tinnitus "malingering"; and
(3)Evaluation of the automated technique in the clinical environment.
