Masters student voor onderzoekstage Tinnitus Test NEW

Afdelingen Neurowetenschappen en KNO, Erasmus MC · Rotterdam

Bij oorsuizen (tinnitus) hoor je geluiden die er niet zijn. Dit is een frequent voorkomende, meestal chronische aandoening, waarvan de oorzaak nog niet goed bekend is, waarvoor geen objectieve test bestaat en waarvoor de behandelingsmogelijkheden beperkt zijn. In dit masters-onderzoek ga je onderzoeken hoe goed tin...
