Zinc: a surprise target in regenerating the optic nerve after injury
Jan 03, 2017
Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital show that chelating zinc that is released as a result of an injured optic nerve gets cells to live longer, perhaps indefinitely, with dramatic levels of axon regeneration in a mouse model.
When silencing phantom noises is a matter of science
Sep 01, 2016
With a clever approach, researchers point to the first gene that could be protective of tinnitus. The study published in Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience reports that without normal function of the GLAST gene, animals are more prone to develop tinnitus.
Prevalence, severity of tinnitus in the US
Jul 21, 2016
Approximately 1 in 10 adults in the United States have tinnitus, and duration of occupational and leisure time noise exposures are correlated with rates of tinnitus and are likely targetable risk factors, according to a study published online by JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery.
