      But my question again is as follows - you know someone in the trial. My impression is that the person you know responded well to the treatment. Yet, the trial page says they are not yet recruiting, which would lead me to conclude the actual trial has not yet begun.

      Am I missing something here?

      I saw that and I really don't know why it appears like that...

      Could be that the data on the website has not been updated.

      How bad is your tinnitus?

      Would you go for DBS when available?

      I am bothered by my tinnitus quite a bit. I would seriously consider the DBS if I was convinced that it I would likely help me.

      Isn’t DBS already available? Brai3n seems to have it up and running already, albeit with a 1/3 success rate. They use Transcranial electrical stimulation, Transcranial Magnetic stimulation, Neurofeedback, and can combine all three depending on the cause.

      That’s not DBS.

      Check that video that was posted earlier... DBS opens up your skull. At Brai3n they do a lot of things, opening skulls isn't one of them :D

      @Ela Stefan, in my previous post I confused the trials, I was mailing with coordinator of Auditory Brainstem Implant trials for tinnitus, which take płace in Groningen, The Netherlands.

      Implantation of an Auditory Brainstem Implant for the Treatment of Incapacitating Unilateral Tinnitus

      She is aiming at stimulating DCN with an implant. Different approach than DBS, though still interesting.
