Our 4th podcast features Dr. Larry Roberts, an emeritus professor at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Dr. Roberts discusses cutting-edge research in neuroscience that points to understanding possible causes of tinnitus, including cochlear pathology, hidden hearing loss at high frequencies, and synaptopathy. He also shares compelling findings on teenagers with tinnitus that suggest links to hyperacusis. Thoughts are shared on how recent research, in such areas as transcranial magnetic stimulation or procedures designed to harness neural plasticity, might be translated into clinical treatments.
