Tinnitus UNE (tUNE)
Here at the University of New England we have a group of Faculty and students (the tUNE group) doing research on various psychological aspects of tinnitus, particularly emphasising ways to address and improve how people with tinnitus may reduce the distress they experience due to tinnitus.
The current projects of this group include:
- Studying the effect of social support for people with tinnitus on the experienced level of distress - CLOSED
- Tinnitus Self-Help Guide Study - CLOSED
- Development of a set of questions to assess how different people react to and feel about tinnitus, including changes in their reactions
- Finding out more about the behaviours people employ to try to reduce tinnitus effects, and if these behaviours are linked to how they feel about tinnitus.
