ONLINE COVER Resounding Relief. This illustration shows a neuromodulatory device used to treat tinnitus, a condition of perceived noise or ringing in the ears. Conlon et al. investigated the effects of acoustic stimulation (delivered by headphones) paired with electrical stimulation of the tongue in patients with chronic tinnitus. After 12 weeks of treatment, patients reported a reduction in symptom severity, which persisted for 12 months. These encouraging results support the therapeutic potential of noninvasive bimodal neuromodulation for tinnitus. [CREDIT: SCIENCEPICTURE CO., NEUROMOD DEVICES LTD.]
