A Quiet Place showed me I have tinnitus
My own damaged hearing is almost certainly my own fault. I watch a lot of live music: I've dived into mosh pits at punk shows and hung out right next to the speakers at metal gigs hundreds of times since I was 17 years old. And I've never once worn earplugs.

Sitting in the anechoic chamber listening to my ears silently screaming at me, I wondered if it was time I invested in a pair. Or at least followed this advice from All Ears about protecting your ears at festivals and live music shows.

"Our hearing is quite extraordinary," Drever said as we parted. "We're lucky that we've got this amazing tool, which is really subtle and nuanced and sophisticated. We mustn't damage it."

I hear that.

New music treatment for tinnitus is promising - StarTribune.com
d. An artist, he knows he spent long hours banging on metal. A dogsledder, he knows that working with dozens of yelping dogs -- he won the 2001 and 2003 Beargrease races and ran the Iditarod in 2004 -- couldn't have helped.

Suddenly he could no longer go to movies, listen to music, drive, even converse. "You start avoiding noise, which takes you in a whole different direction," Wang said. "I was scared to mow the lawn, scared of the sound as well as the vibration."

Our brain hears sounds all the time and prioritizes them. The wind or a fan may be deemed unimportant, while a siren is reason to be alert. "If a sound has no meaning, it gets filtered out," Schwartz said. "If we attach emotion -- particularly fear or danger -- to a sound, we can't ignore it."

The problem occurs when the brain can no longer ignore a sound that has no meaning. In laymen's terms, Wang said, "Our system goes, 'Crap, what is this?'"

Schwartz said the desensitizing treatment, developed in Australia, uses an FDA-approved device similar to an MP3 player. Specially designed music calibrated to the individual patient mimics a

Frontiers | Fifty psychological and psychiatric terms to avoid: a list of inaccurate, misleading, misused, ambiguous, and logically confused words and phrases | Psychology
The goal of this article is to promote clear thinking and clear writing among students and teachers of psychological science by curbing terminological misinformation and confusion. To this end, we present a provisional list of 50 commonly used terms in psychology, psychiatry, and allied fields that should be avoided, or at most used sparingly and with explicit caveats. We provide corrective information for students, instructors, and researchers regarding these terms, which we organize for expository purposes into five categories: inaccurate or misleading terms, frequently misused terms, ambiguous terms, oxymorons, and pleonasms. For each term, we (a) explain why it is problematic, (b) delineate one or more examples of its misuse, and (c) when pertinent, offer recommendations for preferable terms. By being more judicious in their use of terminology, psychologists and psychiatrists can foster clearer thinking in their students and the field at large regarding mental phenomena.
