What we do
Defining misophonia is our mission. Assisting in the process of defining the condition is a huge effort in our endeavor, along with assisting those with the condition to find helpful effective management approaches. Providing a venue for support and awareness is another goal and we also try to raise funds with donations to provide to significant researchers who are hot on the trail of finding out all about this distressing disorder.
Helping the world understand what Misophonia is, is our mission. We provide education through our ever-growing list of presenters on the latest research in the field of Misophonia.
We stick up for you in your battle with Misophonia. You are not alone in your struggles and we are here to lend a helping hand.
Along with education the Misophonia Association helps to fund research in the field of Misophonia with help from our donors and sales of the videos of the conventions.
Above all we are here to support people who suffer with Misophonia. We also support families and others in this situation. You can find tremendous resources in our recorded video section from the past conventions from experts in the field.

“Mimicry in Misophonia: A Large-Scale Survey of Prevalence and Relationship with Trigger Sounds”
The data of these researchers show that mimicry is highly prevalent in misophonia and has beneficial effects in terms of reducing misophonic distress. Its behavioral and social implications and the underlying brain mechanisms need to be investigated in future work.
