About Misophonia Association

Save the Date: #GivingTuesday is December 1!  We’re proud to be a part of this global celebration of giving. 

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during GivingTuesday—whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts.

If the Misophonia Association is one of your favorite causes, please feel free to donate at DONATE TODAY!

Research

In this unpublished preprint, misophonia researchers indicate that in general, anecdotal evidence suggests that misophonia triggers involve a combination of sound stimuli and contextual cues. To read the full article click below:

Presented in bioRxiv Preprint Server for Biology, September, 2020. bioRxiv (pronounced “bio-archive”) is a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences. By posting preprints on bioRxiv, authors are able to make their findings immediately available to the scientific community and receive feedback on draft manuscripts before they are submitted to journals.

Conventions

We are committed to our annual convention, where we present a platform for gathering current and potential researchers and clinicians, and  work directly with those who suffer from misophonia along with their families. We continue to press for legitimate peer-reviewed professional research, and are committed to long-term dedicated and professional activities.

Previous Conventions

The very first convention was held in Portland, OR in 2013 with 55 attendees. In 2014, the 2nd convention was held in Orlando, FL; the 3rd in Chicago, IL in October of 2015 with nearly 200 people attending. In 2017, February, the 4th convention was held in Las Vegas, NV and in 2018, it was held in Bloomington, MN. The 6th convention was held in Denver, Colorado. Most recently, the 7th convention was held online October 8-10, 2020, our very first virtual conference.

Donate

Please join us in our steady and mindful journey towards unbiased knowledge, effective treatment, and a potential cure for misophonia.  The Misophonia Association is funded with volunteer effort and donated time and funds. With your continued kind donations and support of events, we have begun to offer small pilot study style grants. These starter grants are aimed at funding smaller worthy projects that add to the body of work available in the world of peer-reviewed journalism. You may DONATE HERE.
