Dr. Susan Shore, Ph.D., to present Tinnitus Research at San Diego Science Cafe

Fifty million people in the United States suffer from some degree of tinnitus, commonly referred to as ‘ringing in the ear’

Scientists generally agree that tinnitus is generated in the brain, through ‘maladaptive neuronal plasticity’ in response to damage of the cochlea.  Dr. Susan Shore, a professor of neuroscience in the department of Otolaryngology at the University of Michigan has spent the last decade studying the mechanisms underlying tinnitus generation.
