Hi Dr. Hubbard, How would you describe the state of habituation for a tinnitus patient? Is it when the brain no longer is irritated by the noise, or no longer perceives it? And can habituation be confused for tinnitus actually going away? I have heard those saying habituation can be the first step for tinnitus going away. Maybe you can explain habituation more fully in your terms. Thanks so much, Dr. Hubbard.
