A recent study by Heather Hansen, Zeynep M. Saygin and Andrew B. Leber, delves into the types of sounds which people with misophonia are “triggered” by. While people with moderate-to-severe misophonia are aware of the breadth of sounds that are activating to them, the general public has often mistakenly categorized triggering sounds as being of oral or nasal origin. This study looks into that false assumption with more depth.

We are committed to our annual fall 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. See more here.
