Hyperacusis Study at The University of Iowa
University of Iowa Study researchers are inviting people with loudness hyperacusis for an online survey.
It was back in 1983 that the University of Iowa first showed a link between tinnitus and hyperacusis. For many people with tinnitus, loud sounds are often heard as VERY LOUD.
If you have loudness hyperacusis, Iowa researchers would very much appreciate you completing a brief, 30-minute survey at: https://uiowa.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_22YHczpQkvXNHsE
The research team is hoping to learn important characteristics about hyperacusis that might lead to more helpful treatments.
11th International Tinnitus Seminar
May 21-24, 2014
International Tinnitus Seminar is a conference, which was first initiated and organized in 1979 (and then in 1983) by Barbara Goldstein and Abraham Shulman in New York, NY. It has been created to freely exchange latest scientific and clinical thoughts and experiences related to tinnitus. After over 30 years of tradition, this conference has become the principal international, scientific and clinical event in the field of tinnitus. International Tinnitus Seminar is an open event and is not affiliated with a particular society, association or a foundation. By tradition, International Tinnitus Seminars are organized by Presidents elected by the majority of participants during preceding conference.
