A condition characterized by a strongly negative and atypical emotional and physiological response to certain sounds.Jastreboff & Jastreboff 2001
Misophonia is a very understudied and complex neuropsychological/neurobehavioral disorder. Individuals suffering from this disorder often have an intense & uncontrollable emotional reaction to stimuli, in this case: sounds.
The misophonia.io project intends to rigorously characterize misophonia, developing a combination of valid & non-confounding questionnaires, instruments, & assesments. Our goal is to create tools that will help assess and understand why misophonia effects an individual. With our tools helping clinicians and physicians accurately diagnose patients, we can then start to develop effective treatments to produce better outcomes.
