Pause for Thought

People with tinnitus constantly hear annoying sounds, which can detract from their quality of life. This noise is triggered by malfunctions in the brain due to neuron clusters firing excessively and synchronously. The acoustic CR neuromodulation method developed by JARA-BRAIN scientist Prof. Peter Tass is a promising treatment. This method disturbs the synchronous firing of the neurons by using electrical stimulation. Recent research work has now shown that this therapeutic approach can be improved by incorporating sufficiently long pauses between the stimulation of the neurons even if very weak stimulations are used. more
