Hello, Not sure if this has been discussed before, but I was randomly browsing the internet today and found this: http://neurosciencenews.com/alzheimers-hyperactive-neurons-3416/ It hypothesizes a link between hyperactive neurons and the development of Alzheimer's. Seeing as Tinnitus is now thought of to involve hyperactive neurons as well, this might potentially put the "Tinnitus won't kill you" statement you often read in a whole new ballpark... (The statement is unbased anyway, because what do we really know about T and/or it's consequences? But thats another thing). Of course there might be other factors involved in order to develop Alzheimer's, but it's not exactly a comforting read. Especially when considering the current state of affairs regarding scientific Tinnitus knowledge. Thoughts?
