Device Based Tinnitus and Stroke Therapy

Device Based Tinnitus and Stroke Therapy

We built a pacemaker-like system that allows tinnitus and stroke patients to receive a novel therapy. The implanted device is connected to the vagus nerve in the neck and sends tiny pulses of electricity, which cause the brain to release chemicals called neurostransmitters. When these tiny pulses are paired with external stimulus such as tones or motor movements, specific regions of the brain are able to be rapidly rewired. Research was published in Nature and New England Journal of Medicine.
