Investigation of executive functioning in adults with and without tinnitus

13 February 2019

Researchers who investigate the ability to concentrate refer to the ability as “cognition”. Recent research suggests that people with tinnitus may perform differently on computer-based puzzles that measure different types of cognition. The purpose of this research study is to investigate which types of cognition may be different in people with tinnitus compared to people without tinnitus.

  • You must:
  • - Speak fluent English.
  • - Be aged 18 to 80-years old.
