Effect of rTMS on Resting State Brain Activity in Tinnitus

To develop a new treatment option for tinnitus using a technique called rTMS.

  1. Tinnitus Talk
    One out of every five people experiences tinnitus (a ringing, buzzing, or roaring sound in the ear) ranging from mild to severe impairment. To date, there are no effective therapies available that have been shown to decrease tinnitus loudness. The purpose of this study is to develop a new treatment option for tinnitus using a technique called Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), which will hopefully prove to be an effective means of alleviating or reducing the symptoms of tinnitus.
