We have several funded studies being prepared for recruitment:
(1) Identifying the Optimal Neural Target for Misophonia Interventions
In order to develop treatments for Misophonia, it is important to gain a better understanding about what is happening in the brain when people with Misophonia (and those without) are triggered by misophonic and non-misophonic cues. In this study (PI: Neacsiu) funded by the REAM Foundation and supported by CMER, the primary aim is to disentangle the brain circuitry dysfunction in Misophonia when compared to highly emotional dysregulated adults without Misophonia. A secondary aim is to examine changes in misophonic distress and regulation when applying inhibitory, excitatory, or sham repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over key neural networks.
