About

The overall purpose of this research is to assess whether both the "60 second Brain Game" and the "Brain Speed Test" computer-based programs can be used as assessment tools for objectively defining the severity of the functional impact of tinnitus.

Full description

This cross-sectional study aims to assess for deficits in brain processing speed and attention (two cognitive domains whose deficits have been implicated in tinnitus) with the use of the "Brain Speed Test".

Inclusion criteria

  • Participants must be between the ages of 18 and 80.
  • Participants must have subjective, unilateral or bilateral, non-pulsatile tinnitus of 6-months duration or longer.

  • Participants with active diagnoses of any acute or chronic brain-related neurological conditions that alter normal brain anatomy or function including Parkinson's disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's Disease, cerebral infarcts, traumatic brain injury, history of brain tumor(s), epilepsy, or dementia.
  • Participants with tinnitus related to retrocochlear lesions, cochlear implants, or other known anatomic/structural lesions of the brain, skull-base, temporal bone or ear.
  • Participants unable to hear the highest volume of the computer-based objective assessments.
