Professor Peter Tass and Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation
April 18, 2012
On March 20th, The Tinnitus Clinic hosted a conference for the UK medical community which focused on the clinical advances in using Acoustic CR®
Neuromodulation to treat tinnitus. We were pleased to welcome Professor Peter Tass, the Director of Institute for Neurosciences and Medicine - Neuromodulation at Jülich Research Centre, Germany, as one of the conference speakers.
Professor Tass has a distinguished academic career at the renowned Jülich Research Centre where he holds the position of Coordinating Director of the Institute of Neuromodulation. He has spent five years undertaking post-doctoral research at the Neurologic Clinic at the University of Dusseldorf and is Professor of Neuromodulation at the University of Cologne. He has been awarded a number of prizes for science and innovation, including the Erwin Schrödinger Prize, the German Innovation Prize in Medicine 2011, and the Rapid Response Innovation Award 2009 and 2010 from the Michael J. Fox Foundation.
Professor Tass has been at the forefront of investigations into how neurostimulation can be used in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease and tinnitus. His paper Counteracting tinnitus by acoustic coordinated reset neuromodulation
which details a clinical trial of Acoustic CR®
Neuromodulation has recently been published in the journal Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience.
In Professor Tass’ home country of Germany, over 150 Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) physicians use Acoustic CR®
Neuromodulation to treat patients with Tinnitus. Here in the UK, this treatment option is available exclusively from The Tinnitus Clinic. For more information, see the Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation section
