All ears

Life Science

Between 6 and 20% of adults are affected. Whether your ears ring, beep or buzz, tinnitus is a global affliction.

Still, when it comes to treatment, science is struggling to make itself heard above the din.

Previously the presence of such noises could only be measured subjectively through the testimony of sufferers.

Now, with the help of near infrared sensors, a team of researchers from Australia has developed a means of measuring blood oxygen levels in our brains, which allows any ringing noises to be objectively recorded and assessed by computer.

Better treatment could be just around the corner we are glad to hear.
