I’ve been wondering what the difference is between people finding sounds annoying and distressing. Here, we explore Misophonia, a sound sensitivity syndrome where people have strong emotional reactions to common sounds. We meet my friend Molly Templeton and clinical psychologist Dr. Ali Mattu to talk about the brain basis of Misophonia, trigger sounds, reactions and treatment.
