Does everyone scoff at your explanation that you suffer from 'misophonia' - literally, hatred of sound?

Congratulations, science has vindicated you at last. Breathe freely (but not too loudly).

New research from Newcastle University suggests that those of us tormented by certain sounds could in fact have a brain abnormality - explaining the seemingly disproportionate overreaction to your colleague's crisp habit.

The study, published in the journal Current Biology, suggests a difference in the frontal lobe between those who have intense reaction to sound, and those who don't.

Mouth cancer: how to spot the signs

  Mouth cancer: how to spot the signs Many people are familiar with the early warning symptoms of the most common cancers. For instance, we all know that a lump on the breast may be a sign of breast cancer. But what about cancer of the mouth?

If you need a moment to get over that, you might just be a genius ! There’ s a real condition called Misophonia, which makes you sensitive to sounds According to studies conducted at Northwestern University, people diagnosed with Misophonia have a higher likelihood of being a creative genius .

Are you one of those people who does not like hearing when other people chew ? Well, there is a science behind this that says people who are really annoyed by other people chewing may be very Before the results, the participants were asked to answer a Creative Achievement Questionnaire.

According to the study, 'The Brain Basis for Misophonia', the condition is “an effective sound-processing disorder characterised by the experience of strong negative emotions (anger and anxiety) in response to everyday sounds, such as those generated by other people eating, drinking, chewing, and breathing.

Scans detected a change in brain activity of a misophonic when a 'trigger sound' was heard: specifically, in the “emotional control mechanism”, which caused the brains to go into overdrive.

The commonplace nature of these sounds (often referred to as “trigger sounds”) makes misophonia a devastating disorder for sufferers and their families, and yet nothing is known about the underlying mechanism.

According to Tim Griffiths, professor of Cognitive Neurology at Newcastle University and UCL: “I was part of the sceptical community myself until we saw patients in the clinic and understood how strikingly similar the features are.”

Eating Fast, Chewing Gum and Other Things That Cause Bloating

  Eating Fast, Chewing Gum and Other Things That Cause Bloating Eating Fast, Chewing Gum and Other Things That Cause Bloating Have you ever noticed how sometimes after lunch your belly is three times bigger than usual up to a point where you have to unbutton your pants? You don’t understand why because you didn’t overeat, but your abdomen is awkwardly full and gassy anyway.Bloating is a common problem for adults as well as children. The condition often prevents people from engaging in fun activities or even be “good at life.” A study has shown that people who have this issue use more of their sick days at work, go to the doctor more often and take more meds.

20% of people have a condition known as Misophonia, which makes you highly attentive to certain noises–like people chewing , slurping, etc. According to researchers from Northwestern University, people diagnosed with Misophonia are more likely to be a creative genius than their peers that

Does the sound of someone chewing make you want to punch through a wall? Have you almost walked out of a movie theater because the person eating popcorn next to you sounded more like a horse than a human? If you said yes to these, you 're probably a creative genius , according to study

Dr Sukhbinder Kumar, of the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle, said that for many people with misophonia this will come as welcome news, “as for the first time we have demonstrated a difference in brain structure and function in sufferers”.

This study demonstrates the critical brain changes as further evidence to convince a sceptical medical community that this is a genuine disorder.

Other studies have suggested that those suffering from the disorder might even be cognitively superior in other ways.

According to research from Northwestern University, there is a correlation between hypersensitivity to particular sounds (or 'leaky sensory gating'), and high levels of creativity.

The study explains: Overall results suggest that leaky sensory gating may help people integrate ideas that are outside of focus of attention, leading to creativity in the real world; whereas divergent thinking, measured by divergent thinking tests which emphasize numerous responses within a limited time, may require selective sensory processing more than previously thought.


Science says your male pet is definitely breaking your stuff on purpose .
As much as we love our pets, sometimes they can be total jerks. According to a new study, male pets are worse…Just about 59 percent of their respondents said that a pet has destroyed a phone.
