Sound-Rage, commonly known as "Misophonia," is a little known disorder characterized by an anger response to certain sounds. Gum popping, food chewing, nose sniffing, pen clicking... fingers pointing, legs swinging, hair twirling.... For the vast majority of people, these sounds and sights are meaningless. For a small minority of the population, these sounds and sights are triggers that lead to instant rage and set off a physiological urge to flee. The primer presents groundbreaking research on the neurobiology and psychology of the disorder, and provides compelling evidence that "Sound-Rage" is a neurological, developmental disorder that alters neural processes in the brain. It discusses why cognitive behavior therapy is the most effective treatment for reducing symptoms.
