Identifying ways of lessening tinnitus distress
Researchers at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge in the UK are looking for ways to promote relaxation, known to improve tinnitus distress.
Due to the negative effects of tinnitus, a group of researchers at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge in the UK are looking for ways to promote relaxation, known to improve tinnitus distress.
They are running a research study involving watching videos that induce the ASMR response (a calm response that slows your heart rate). They are also investigating if levels of stress (cortisol) changes due to being relaxed.
How can I help?
Participation in this study can be an enjoyable experience and help identify ways of lessening tinnitus distress. You will be asked to complete:
A 10-15 minute online questionnaire. Here is the link to register.
A 45-50 minute in-person session at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge to watch a relaxing video and collect a tiny sample of your hair (invisible) and three samples of your saliva
A 3 minute questionnaire to complete at the end of the session.
Who can help?
Both adults with tinnitus and without tinnitus (control group) are welcome to participate
Will I get paid?
To thank you, a £10 Amazon voucher will be given following participation.
