S7E26 - Dr. Jennifer Brout - 2024 Edition

I’m excited to have back on the show, Dr. Jennifer Brout.  We discuss various aspects of misophonia, including family accommodations, coping skills, and the importance of research. Jennifer emphasizes the need for more research on family functioning and children's development in relation to misophonia. We also talk about the role of epigenetics in gene expression and the potential adaptive nature of misophonia. We talk about neuroscience, epigenetic and the possible role of evolution on misophonia and sensory disorders more broadly. She emphasizes the need for multidisciplinary research, guidelines for seeking treatment, and the importance of an accurate description of misophonia.
