susanshoreA new study at the University of Michigan Health System, which was co-sponsored by the Tinnitus Research Initiative, has shown in an animal experiment, that somatosensory neurons maintain a high level of activity following exposure to loud noise, even after hearing itself returns to normal. These results mark an important step toward potential relief for people who are suffering from tinnitus, pointed out principal investigator Susan E. Shore, Ph.D., of U-M's Kresge Hearing Research Institute and a professor of otolaryngology and molecular and integrative physiology at the U-M Medical School.
