      Hi all,

      I am a graduate student in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, looking for people younger than 35 years who might be interested in participating in a tinnitus-neuroscience research initiative. I would really appreciate your participation and am very eager to help you.

      Thank you
      Anusha

      Can you please be more specific?

      What does the research study entail for the participants? What does a study participant have to go through? How much time is required from participants? Are participants compensated for their involvement? What is the goal of the research? What are you exactly researching and with what methods? "Tinnitus Neuroscience Initiative" seems quite broad a description.

      Do you have a website for the study?

      Answers to stuff like that would certainly be helpful.

      Welcome to TT!

      This is a proof of concept study in which we are trying to better understand how the brain in involved in the processing of tinnitus. This involves recording brain waves in response to a sounds by using an EEG cap and also some audiometric testing involving tinnitus pitch/loudness matching and audiogram. It takes about 3-4 hours in total and unfortunately there is no compensation at this point. It is voluntary. This is simple but a novel study and if successful will contribute largely to the tinnitus literature.

      We also believe that since there is so much discussion about tinnitus in the audiology and now the neuroscience field, this study will definitely provide a better insight to understanding the disorder and help develop more effective treatments.

      That sounds great.

      Hopefully some of our visitors located nearby Dallas/Fort Worth will see your thread.

      Can people contact you via e-mail? How do they get in touch with you? We do have a lot of visitors who aren't registered members here so it would be good if you could provide them with alternate means of contact (e-mail or phone, etc.)

      We'd also appreciate it if you could update here once enough people have signed up with the study in order to avoid people unnecessarily contacting you.

      Good luck!

      In Dallas there is the Brain lab directed by Sven Vanneste and they are testing a completely different treatment for tinnitus. Hopes...

      I just did this today anda met Anusha, very kind person, the study was awesome, seeing my own brain waves was great lol, specially when it shows every single movement you make interpreted by your brain in waves, great study.
