      Tinnitus Since:
      Cause of Tinnitus:

      The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) is delighted to announce the publication of the first edition of the new Annual Tinnitus Research Review.

      The BTA is very keen to promote research into tinnitus, and funded over £576,000 of projects in 2015/16, equating to 53% of its annual spend.

      In the Tinnitus Research Review, the first of an annual series, the BTA have invited experts in tinnitus to review relevant research published in 2015, with the aim of summarising the highest quality and most relevant papers, giving both professional and lay readers an overview of the themes and developments in the field.

      The hope is that this will encourage and inform busy clinicians dealing with people with troublesome tinnitus on a daily basis. We hope this will inspire further research to be undertaken, building upon the new knowledge.

      Each contributor has taken a specific theme in research to review, and the intention is to have an in depth consideration of the new knowledge regarding tinnitus, and where that takes us in understanding and developing new and effective treatments.

      Dr David Baguley, Professor in Hearing Sciences at the University of Nottingham and Deputy Director at NIHR Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Unit, who co-edited the review commented: “If the understanding and treatment of tinnitus is to improve, a vibrant and innovative field of research is needed, exploring new insights into mechanisms of tinnitus, associated impact, and interventions that both reduce tinnitus perception and the associated distress”. Dr Baguley also said: “The Annual Research Review is a very welcome development. It is an indication that there is a substantial body of research into tinnitus: but also that the BTA takes its responsibility to broadcast new information about tinnitus very seriously. I was honoured to be asked to edit the first edition with Nic Wray from the BTA and hope it will be of interest to patients, clinicians, and researchers alike”.

      The Annual Tinnitus Research Review is downloadable as a PDF from this page and is also available as a printed copy from the BTA office upon request.
