A resource and network of Misophonia Researchers

The International Misophonia Research Network


We only support evidence-based science. We believe in the process of scientific research and support researchers.


Researchers and sufferers communicating together can devise studies and support (financial donations, participation)  research.


We provide links to studies, workshops, articles, and other resources on misophonia for scientists & the general public.

“In particular, research examining auditory gating, sensory processing, and neural processes underlying these can add to a foundation for the cross-disciplinary conceptualization of misophonia.”
— Dr. Brout Et al.

Duke Center for Misophonia and Emotion Regulation (CMER)

The Duke Center for Misophonia and Emotion Regulation (CMER) is actively conducting clinical research on misophonia, providing education to the public, and evaluating patients with treatment and management recommendations about misophonia. Given how little is known about misophonia, the opportunities for discovery and improved care are virtually limitless.
