While many people can tune out the sounds of daily life most of the time, others can have strong emotional and physical reactions to sounds. This experience is known as sound sensitivity and can take several forms including conditions such as tinnitus, hyperacusis, misophonia, noise annoyance, and phonophobia.
If you are sensitive to sounds, a research project from the University of Melbourne, Australia would like you to participate in their online survey.
The aim: Better understanding
The aim of the project is learn more about sound sensitivity conditions and put this knowledge towards understanding and helping people who suffer from a sensitivity to sounds.
The project is called "Do You Hear What I Hear?" and is led by PhD candidate Krysta Callander, Melbourne School of Psycological Sciences.
