Annual Tinnitus Research Review 2017

In the Tinnitus Research Review, the second of an annual series, we invited experts in tinnitus to review relevant research published in 2016, with the aim of summarising the highest quality and most relevant papers, giving both professional and lay readers an overview of the themes and developments in the field.

Authors include:

  • Professor David Baguley
  • Dr Magdalena Sereda
  • Dr William Sedley
  • Dr Grant D Searchfield
  • Dr Robert H Pierzycki
  • Dr Padraig T Kitterick
  • Dr James Henry
  • Dr Derek J Hoare
  • Don McFerran
  • Dr Susanne Nemholt Rosing

The hope is that this will encourage and inform busy clinicians dealing with people with troublesome tinnitus on a daily basis. We hope this will inspire further research to be undertaken, building upon the new knowledge.

Each contributor has taken a specific theme in research to review, and the intention is to have an in depth consideration of the new knowledge regarding tinnitus, and where that takes us in understanding and developing new and effective treatments.

Themes discussed include:

  • The neuroscience of tinnitus
  • Hearing aids and combination devices
  • Cochlear implants and tinnitus
  • The pharmacology of tinnitus: ototoxicity and treatment
  • Internet based treatments for tinnitus
  • Technological management of tinnitus
