Podcast 12: Talking About Tinnitus with Children

SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS: David Baguley, PhD, and Claire Benton, MSc

TOPIC: Dr. Baguley and Claire Benton discuss their efforts to educate parents, teachers, and healthcare providers on talking to children about tinnitus. The widespread misconception that children don’t have tinnitus has meant children suffer alone and miss critical opportunities for early intervention. They also discuss their research findings on the topic and tools to help children manage tinnitus. 

Episode 4 Ringing Ears and the Neuroscience of Tinnitus

Larry RobertsOur 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.
