Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive neuromodulation treatment that involves the induction of electrical currents in a targeted region of the brain with the ability to impact various functional processes (Chervyakov  et al., 2015). rTMS has shown to provide clinical improvement among a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders and has been FDA-approved for treatment resistant depression (TRD). rTMS continues to undergo trials for other treatment indications including post-traumatic stress disorder (PT SD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), bipolar depression, schizophren...

Objectives: To investigate the risk of stroke in SSNHL patients. Study Design: A longitudinal follow-up cohort study. Setting: The Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort from 2002 to 2013. Patients: The 4,944 SSNHL participants were matched with 19,776 controls for age, sex, income, region of residence, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. The SSNHL subjects were diagnosed (International Classification of Disease [ICD]-10: H91.2), underwent an audiometry examination, and were treated with steroids. The history of hemorrhagic stroke, ischemic stroke, hypertension, diabetes, dyslipide...

Tinnitus, the hearing of sound when no external sound is present, may cause severe distress and impair quality of life in 0.5-3% of the adult population [1]. Chronic severe tinnitus is often accompanied by severe insomnia, anxiety and depression, eventually resulting in suicide and requests for euthanasia [2]. For these patients, few treatment options are currently available and 20% remains affected despite treatment [1].

AbstractAs research on the cognitive impact of medical conditions and mental health disorders advances, it is imperative for forensic neuropsychologists to stay abreast of rapidly accumulating new empirical evidence from neuroscience and neuropsychology to disentangle multiple determinants of cognitive impairment. Although medicolegal neuropsychological assessments traditionally focused on traumatic brain injury (TBI) sequelae, it is equally important to consider the potential impact of any other acquired, or secondarily induced brain impairments, regardless of their source. Such injuries or conditions are at times assumed...

AbstractTinnitus, a common hearing condition encountered in medicolegal evaluations, often but not always in association with traumatic brain injuries, can adversely impact both cognitive and affective functioning and neuropsychological test results. Although it has been traditionally conceptualized as primarily related to cochlear pathology, tinnitus has been seen more recently as a condition involving brain plasticity. Its persistent clinical effect on cognition and affect is compounded by comorbid psychiatric syndromes such as depression. Understanding the impact of tinnitus, a factor often difficult to capture and negl...

We present a case report on Cycloserine induced Suicidal tendencies and Kanamycin induced decrease in hearing sensation in Indian MDR-TB patient. CASE REPORT: A 55-year-old male patient who was diagnosed with MDR-TB was prescribed with category IV anti-tubercular therapy. Within one month of initiation of therapy, he developed repeated suicidal thoughts, joint pain, restlessness, depression, constipation, insomnia, tinnitus and a decrease in hearing sensation. RESULTS: Cycloserine and kanamycin were closely associated with suicidal tendency and tinnitus followed by decrease in hearing sensations respectively. On ...

Conclusions: Guided (using audiological support) iCBT for tinnitus resulted in statistically significant reductions in tinnitus distress and comorbidities (insomnia, depression, hyperacusis, cognitive failures) and a significant increase in quality of life. These effects remained stable at 2-months postintervention. Further trials to determine the longer term efficacy of iCBT to investigate predictors of outcome and to compare iCBT with standard clinical care in the United Kingdom are required. Registered at clinicaltrials.gov: NCT02370810 on 5/03/2015.
