Tinnitus analysis and treatment

Up to 10% of the population suffer from "brain noise" - tinnitus - at least some of the time. For many of them it is hardly endurable. While the noise often is perceived in the ears, most of the time it actually is generated inside the brain, specifically in the auditory cortex. Researchers from the Julich research institute showed that targeted acoustical neuromodulation (i.e. a destinct form of auditory stimulation) can be extremely positive for tinnitus patients.

The Tinnicur based therapy first of all allows to acoustically "rebuild" the patient's individual tinnitus signal in frequency, signalform (bandwidth), volume and balance. Making it "visible" (audible) for the patient's spouse and family gives them a much better understanding of what the patient is actually enduring every day. Based on these finding an individual audio therapy and corresponding neuronal stimulation (neuromodulation) is set up for the patient. During this training, the patient will listen to preferably classical music that from time to time will be filtered in a specific way to reduce the level of active noticability of the tinnitus signal and to teach the brain to better "tune out from it".
