The New York Times on Notched Music Therapy
The New York Times wrote a brief article on Notched Music Therapy when some of the earlier research was published several years ago. Click here to check it out! In fact, there’s a great explanatory paragraph on the mechanism underlying the therapy:
The researchers suggest that two things might be happening in the auditory cortex to bring about the improvement. The neurons in the cortex related to the ringing frequency are presumably not being stimulated, because those frequencies are absent from the music. At the same time, nearby neurons may have been actively suppressing the tinnitus-related neurons, through a process known as lateral inhibition.
It’s amazing to see Notched Sound Therapy receive this kind of press coverage!
