Recently, neuromodulation through direct or indirect approach has shown promising results in relieving tinnitus in both human and animal subjects. It involves stimulation of a variety of peripheral and brain structures. Among these structures modulated, stimulation of the auditory structures has demonstrated robust evidence of tinnitus suppression in both human and animal studies. This talk will present the latest development in human and animal studies, discuss the underlying mechanisms, and address possible translational approaches towards tinnitus suppression.
