CMER Quarterly Research E-conference with Drs. Andrada Neacsiu, Jennifer Brout and Zach Rosenthal

April 17, 2021

"Neurostimulation and Misophonia"

We held our 1 hour Zoom CMER quarterly e-conference (partnering with Misophonia Education) on Saturday, April 17th, 2021 at 2pm EST (11am PST).

Duke CMER Faculty member, Dr. Andrada Neacsiu, talked about noninvasive neurostimulation.  Noninvasive neurostimulation involves using magnetic fields and electricity to alter the function of brain regions closest to the scalp. One type of neurostimulation, Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been used to develop an FDA-cleared treatment for depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other conditions. This e-conference was for the lay audience and was an introduction to neurostimulation as well as its potential utility to misophonia research and treatment. 

CMER Director, Dr. Zach Rosenthal and Dr. Jennifer Brout, the Director of the International Misophonia Research Network (IMRN) were also available to answer questions.
