Researchers think they've found a new way to cure tinnitus, the constant ear-ringing that some people suffer from. It's believed that the ringing doesn't come from physical damage to the ear; instead, it originates in your brain. If this is true, and more and more testing is pointing that way, it means you should be able to train your brain to stop the ringing. Simple. Heal yourself. Now if I could just figure out a way to get "Night Moves" out of my head (you're welcome).
