      @kelpiemsp Did they measure your LDL before and after the trials? Or only tinnitus is involved in the research?

      Can someone post a link to the clinical trial website for this Minnesota study? I can't seem to find it. I just see Susan Shore's.

      Is is really coming to Ireland in a matter of weeks? If so, wouldn't you have to stay there for months for the treatment? I thought the earliest was Belgium in September at the Brain Clinic.

      @kelpiemsp Do you know if Minnesota ever filled the role to replace Dr. Lim for the study?

      Yes they have a research team moving forward with it. Dr. Lim is still involved at some level.

      I think you may be right. My sincere apologies everyone - I certainly should have read through the page more closely! Now I see that it mentions transcranial stimulation too.
      I will still leave up my original post to facilitate further discussion.

      I could not find any other study on clinicaltrials.gov other than the one that was updated to "withdrawn" a few days ago.

      Are we sure this is not the same study?

      I have had some contact with the group responsible for the study and it sounds like it may be on hold while they are actually designing a wearable device. I believe @kelpiemsp posted job openings for this earlier in the thread. I read that Hubert Lim was on leave with Neuromod for a year and a half and his is coming close to that time frame, not that it couldn't be extended.

      You were right.

      I was hoping they might be opening the study up again sometime soon. But the design of a wearable device is definitely a step in the right direction.

      Absolutely, if I had to guess, I’d put my money on a partnership with a hearing aid company. I feel like their design really lends itself to being combined with a hearing aid or similarly styled device. I really think they are moving the hardware aspect forward at this point. Hubert Lim will be returning to the UofM, and they have posted neuromodulation jobs. Also, I had the opportunity to peruse his lab, and tinnitus therapy is really the first step. I think he hopes to be able to help chronic pain, depression, improve sight, hearing etc. This was just gleaned from the work of his students and lab. Not sure if it’s valid or “pie in the sky”. But DARPA is funding it.......
