Participate in a Study

Participate in misophonia research

Do you experience distress upon hearing certain common sounds (such as chewing, tapping or breathing sounds)? You may be eligible to participate in a paid UCSD research study.

We are looking to recruit participants between the ages of 18 and 65 with misophonia to participate in a research study. The purpose of this study is to examine how people with and without misophonia perceive and process different kinds of sounds.

Research participants will be asked to listen to, produce and make judgments about certain sounds, while simultaneously having their skin conductance response (SCR) and body heat (via thermal imaging) measured.

The experiment will last for two lab sessions, with each session lasting for no more than one hour. Research participants will be paid $10 for each hour of participation. If you are interested in participating in this experiment, you can contact Miren Edelstein, MA.


Particularly needing participants in the San Diego area.
