      In short, that means the brain activity related to tinnitus differs depending of the age of onset. And future treatments, at least brain stimulation based ones, will take that into account. They are refining their models. :)

      Does this give more or less hope for people who got it while being young? I'm 19, was 18 when I got it, 5 months ago. The sound has changed, some has gone away and returned.

      thats a good question @Erlend. Being 21, we're kind of in the same boat. Hopefully us being young when we got T will help us out in the future.

      I got tinnitus when I was 17. I'm 27 now. I don't feel like it has benefited me in any way to have it young. lol
