Roland Schaette is a Reader in Computational Auditory Neuroscience at the UCL Ear Institute. His research on tinnitus started in 2003 with his PhD research at Humboldt University Berlin.
His research on tinnitus focuses on understanding the neuronal mechanisms that are involved in the development of the phantom noise, with the goal of finding new ways of treating the disorder. The research studies comprise measurements in humans, animal studies and computer models, and range from neurophysiological and psychophysical investigations to the evaluation of candidate drugs and treatment approaches.
Roland is a member of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology and the Society for Neuroscience.
