Dr. Soroush Sadeghi received an NIH grant to study vestibular dysfunction!

Dr. Soroush Sadeghi, an assistant professor in the Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences, received a R03 grant from National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders! The grant uses a combination of cutting-edge experimental paradigms to investigate changes in afferent response properties mediated by the cholinergic and GABAergic efferent pathways differentially. Results will provide a better understanding of the function of the efferent vestibular system and the basis for new pharmacological approaches for improving compensation in patients with vestibular dysfunction. For more detailed description about the grant, please click here. Congrats, Dr. Sadeghi!

UB News Center features Dr. Salvi’s breakthrough research in tinnitus!

UB News Center features Dr. Salvi’s breakthrough research in tinnitus! The research article entitled “Tinnitus and hyperacusis involve hyperactivity and enhanced connectivity in auditory-limbic-arousal-cerebellar network” is published in the most recent issue of eLife, a high profile, high impact factor journal. The study found that the neural network responsible for tinnitus was more expansive than previously thought. The findings can lead to a testable model of tinnitus. Congratulations, Dr. Salvi!
