Tinnitus study looks for cure to 'ringing in the ears'
Date:8/11/2010

Kilgard now are working with researchers in Belgium to set up a protocol for conducting the first round of tests in humans. Less than half of therapies that are successful in animals prove successful when tested on people, Kilgard said.

"We want to find out as much as we can about how well this works in rats. That is what this phase of the research is about," he said. "Once we have that additional data, we can try out a similar therapy on humans, and we hope to find this offers a permanent end to their tinnitus discomfort."

Dr. Bert Moore, dean of the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences, said UT Dallas' relationship with MicroTransponder continues to yield results.

"The story behind this research is a wonderful example of how investigators such as Drs. Cauller and Kilgard, exploring basic mechanisms of how the brain adapts and learns, can collaborate with corporate partners to develop new technologies to address a variety of human problems," he said. "This is the goal of our research mission at UT Dallas, creating new knowledge so that we can impact and improve people's lives."
