Tinnitus may be considered as a form of phantom auditory sensation and as such parallels may be drawn with other forms of phantom sensation, such as the sensation of pain in an amputated limb (phantom limb pain). There has been recent interest in the use of eye movement therapies to treat patients with phantom sensations such as these. The role of eye movements in the propagation and maintenance of tinnitus has also been well established. The main aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of an established form of eye movement therapy called Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). This research is important as EMDR has produced encouraging results for other forms of phantom sensation and current models of tinnitus fit well with the proposed mode of action of EMDR. Tinnitus is very prevalent in our population and is often associated with significant discomfort; however, there is a severe lack of effective treatments based on well designed clinical trials. The investigator wishes to assess the usefulness of EMDR against the current treatment that is available in many institutions including the Investigator's own. The Investigator intends to recruit 15-30 patients initially to run a pilot study, before embarking on a larger scale study. The Investigator hopes that this pilot study will run over the course of a year. If this study demonstrates a significant improvement in tinnitus in patient undergoing EMDR, this will be an important step forward not only for treating patients with this disorder, but also for understanding the pathways that initiate, propagate and maintain tinnitus perception.
TMD treatment, based on state of the art knowledge derived from clinical studies will be applied in patients with tinnitus and TMD. When this approach proves to be useful for the treatment of tinnitus, it offers a new therapeutic option for patients with tinnitus. To understand how TMD treatment works for patients with tinnitus, we will analyse mediating factors, i.e. factors that contribute to the therapeutic effect. To help clinicians in their clinical process we will identify prognostic indicators, i.e. factors that predict a positive or negative outcome of TMD treatment. This can provide a helpful tool in clinical practice.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether it is possible to accelerate learning and improve memory performance in VNS implanted tinnitus participants by pairing VNS with a verbal paired-associate learning task.
This study investigates the effect of cervical physical therapy on tinnitus annoyance in patients with somatic tinnitus. This study specifically enrolls patients with co-varying tinnitus and neck complaints, with low-pitched tinnitus or patients who's tinnitus can be influenced by neck movements or positions. These inclusion criteria were chosen, since a prior study showed that these factors were good prognostic indicators for a positive treatment effect.
A prospective, randomized, controlled, clinical trial with blind evaluator that uses TRT and EMDR as a treatment for tinnitus.
To investigate the effects of hearing aid, huperzine A and combination of hearing aid and huperzine A on tinnitus suppression, hearing and cognitive function protection in patients with presbycusis
participants will be randomized into one of three groups: 3-session CET intervention, 3-session ACT intervention, or Waiting List group. Each weekly session will last up to 2 hours and 10 participants will be assigned to each group. There will be two cohorts, with 30 participants in each cohort. The Waiting List group will receive the CET intervention after the groups have completed theirs.
Relating the electroencephalogram findings of patients with tinnitus before and after a therapeutic modality is still scarce in the literature, especially with neuromodulatory methods, more specifically with Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation - tDCS. This study is a double blind, sham-controlled clinical trial aiming investigate the impact of tDCS on patterns of brain electrical activity in patients with chronic tinnitus. 36 volunteers with tinnitus will be allocated randomly in 2 groups: the first (n = 18) will receive anodic tDCS in the temporoparietal left area and cathode in the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and the second group (n = 18) correspond to the sham group. In addition, healthy individuals (n = 18) will be recruited for comparative purposes of brain electrical activity with and without tinnitus, totaling 54 participants. Patients with tinnitus will receive transcranial direct current stimulation for 20 minutes for 5 consecutive days (1 week) and will be assessed before and after intervention by electroencephalogram, Acuphenometry, Visual Analogue Scale - VAS and questionnaire Tinnitus Handicap Inventory- THI. Follow-up of volunteers will also be performed after 1 month of the end of treatment with tDCS.
The aim of this exploratory study is to evaluate the use and effectiveness of sound therapy for tinnitus relief in cochlear implant users with tinnitus. The sound therapy is a combination of tinnitus counselling and sound enrichment with the Cochlear Active Relief from Tinnitus (CART) firmware.
The purpose of this study is to determine if a novel sound-based therapy in comparison to standard of care (cognitive behavioral therapy) results in reducing tinnitus-related effects for people with bothersome tinnitus.
