Synthetic tinnitus during executive functioning tasks

18 February 2020

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 if participants without tinnitus can perform computer-based puzzles while listening to a distracting noise that simulates tinnitus.
