New paper: Misophonia

My latest paper on functional connectivity in fMRI data acquired from Misophonia sufferers while at rest and when presented with sounds is published in the Journal of Neuroscience. We argue that Misophonia is not a disorder of sound emotion processing but it is a result of hyper mirroring by a part of the motor cortex involved in producing these trigger sounds.
