European School for Interdisciplinary Tinnitus Research (ESIT)

Originally planned as a face-to-face training event at the ESIT partner institution KU Leuven, our most recent workshop, the ESIT - Nature Digital Masterclass was carried out online, with active participation by ESIT PhD candidates, their supervisors, and several other external partners from our wide network in tinnitus research.

This has been an exceptional opportunity for all participants to gain new insights into the scientifc writing and publishing process, and to interact directly with editors of the high-ranking scientific journal Nature, providing valuable background information and personal tips. This was especially done through an individual abstract review session with each participant who had the chance of submitting an abstract beforehand, to be evaluated and discussed personally with a journal editor.

We very much thank everyone involved in the planning and re-planning of this event, and are certain it has been a unique and fruitful learning experience for all!


Recently, ESIT Project supervisor Prof Berthold Langguth at the University of Regensburg/medbo Bezirksklinikum Regensburg went on air with the German regional TV station MDR (part of the national TV network ARD).

Prof Langguth talked about tinnitus research and especially the app TrackYourTinnitus, developed by ESIT project partners Ulm University and the TRI (Tinnitus Research Initiative) foundation.");">🇪🇺");">🇩🇪

This app (downloadable from all app stores) functions as an individual diary for tinnitus patients, helping them monitor and keep track of their condition, and importantly also serves as a valuable base for research carried out by several PhD students of our network, striving to improve understandings and treatments of tinnitus in its various forms!");">👂");">🔬

Congratulations from the entire consortium to Sana Amanat, ESIT PhD candidate at the University of Granada, to completing an insightful article on Heritability and Genetics Contribution to Tinnitus, published in the journal Otolaryngologic Clinics of North America, DOI: 10.1016/j.otc.2020.03.003.

Constanze Riha, ESIT doctoral researcher at the University of Zurich, achieved a further publication towards the completion of her PhD: Accounting for Heterogeneity: Mixed-Effects Models in Resting-State EEG Data in a Sample of Tinnitus Sufferers. This paper was published under the Open Access-framework in the journal Brain Topography, DOI: 10.1007/s10548-020-00772-7. We congratulate Constanze to this exeptional success!

ESIT PhD student Muntazir Mehdi (Ulm University), with contribution by ESIT PhD candidates Constanze Riha (University of Zurich) and Albi Dode (Ulm University) published their new article Smartphone Apps in the Context of Tinnitus: Systematic Review in the high-ranking open-access journal Sensors, DOI: 10.3390/s20061725. Congratulations to this outstanding achievemend and contribution to digital research in the tinnitus field!

A further article by Stefan Schoisswohl, ESIT PhD candidate at the University of Regensburg, entitled Short Term Tinnitus Surpression With Electric-Field Guided rTMS for Individualizing rTMS-Treatment: A Technical Feasibility Report was recently published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Neurology, DOI: 10.3389/fneur.2020.00086. Congratulation once again to Stefan and for contributing ESIT's 19th scientific publication overall!

Stefan Schoisswohl, ESIT PhD student at the University of Regensburg, achieved another publication towards his dissertation, entitled Amplitude Modulated Noise for Tinnitus Supression in Tonal and Noise-Like Tinnitus in the open-access journal Audiology & Neurotology DOI: 10.1159/000504593. Congratulation to Stefan for ESIT's 18th publication and the first of 2020!


We are pleased to report the 21st ESIT publication! It was achieved by our fellow Constanze Riha, researching at the Chair of Neuropsychology of the Department of Psychology at the University of Zurich.

For her PhD, Constanze is intensively investigating brain measures for the better understanding and treatment of the complex condition that tinnitus represents.
