Previous misophonia research has focused primarily on aversions to human mouth and nose sound (e.g., chewing, sniffling), but according to this article, there exists considerable individual variability in sound reported as bothersome, warranting an objective and data-driven investigation. The authors share the outcomes of 3 experimental methods with participants in the study. The study helps validate the disorder quantitatively, offers supporting evidence for the inclusion of misophonia as a legitimate disorder, and emphasizes the need to expand our definition of misophonic trigger sounds. To learn more about this research you can read the full article at: What sound sources trigger misophonia?

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.
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.
