Groundbreaking Tinnitus Treatment Research

Ground Breaking Tinnitus Research from U of M!

Drs. Shore and Crossland at the Michigan Audiology Coalition conference.

Dr. Shore does groundbreaking Tinnitus research at the University of Michigan. Dr. Crossland and Dr. Dokianakis are excited to learn and bring you the newest advances in Tinnitus management.

Dr. Shore shared some of her latest research: “The brain, specifically the region of the brainstem called the dorsal cochlear nucleus, is the root of tinnitus. When the main neurons in this region become hyperactive and synchronize with one another, the phantom signal is transmitted into other centers where perception occurs. If we can stop these signals, we can stop tinnitus.

If you have ringing in one or both ears and are interested in participating in a research study at U of M, call Dr. Shore’s lab: 734-763-5159. Please note that, to participate, you must be at least 18 years old and reside within 100 miles of Ann Arbor, MI.
