Key Ideas

Misophonia

Misophonia is a neurophysiological condition where people have an excessively negative reaction to specific sounds, like slurping, humming, tapping, typing, or texting.

Misophonia means "hatred of sound" and people with this condition are aware of their overreaction, but can't control their reaction.

The trigger sounds

The aversion to trigger sounds develops in childhood and tends to get worse over time.

The sounds are commonly related to the mouth, nasal sound, and hand sounds, and are more distressing if family members produce them.

Misophonic responses

Anger is the most common misophonic response, followed by anxiety or disgust.

In misophonia, people react to sounds that are not widely considered unpleasant, such as whispering or soft breathing.

Fight or flight

Misophonics are unable to ignore annoying sounds. It seems that selective attention may be impaired in these individuals. The only option when their attention becomes fixated on a trigger sound may be fight or flight.

The condition and treatment are still in its infancy, although some evidence suggests that cognitive-behavioral therapy may help.

Flight Effects on Passengers

While we are on a flight, there are plenty of changes that we can experience:

  • Change in brain chemistry and memory due to the deficiency in oxygen.
  • Cognitive deficits in people who are already ill.
  • Increased tiredness and more yawning during the flight.
  • Deterioration in vision, dryness of skin, change in taste of food due to a reduction in the sensitivity of our taste buds and a decrease in the sense of smell.
  • Change in air-pressure makes passengers generally uncomfortable with the sitting.

    The Anxious Flight Passenger

    Mood swings, along with general anxiety or nervousness are common among flight passengers.

    • Less oxygen can increase the effects of alcohol and the overall anxiety. These factors contribute to emotional changes, which can make people less friendly, more stressed out and lethargic.
    • People are also prone to severe mood swings, like having extreme emotional reactions to movie scenes which would otherwise appear normal to them.

    Laughter is a Complex Emotion

    The complex emotion of laughter has the power to override other emotions. The neurotransmitters (brain circuits) are controlling the facial muscles and vocal architecture, giving priority to positive emotions.

    There are several brain pathways that contribute to laughter, like the regions of decision-making, behavior control, and our brains emotional circuitry.

    The Underlying Neural Functions

    Various studies and research have shed some light on the underlying neural functions of the brain features that result in laughter being expressed by the body.

    Pseudobulbar Affect Syndrome is a condition involving an unsettling exhibition of laughter, characterized by frequent, involuntary and uncontrollable outbursts of laughing and crying. This Syndrome is due to a disconnect between the frontal pathways of the brainstem, which control emotional drives, and is associated with several disorders like Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and stroke.

    Go easy on the cardio

    Cardio doesn't always necessarily lead to excess hunger or binging.

    Some people are more sensitive to large quantities of cardio and are more binge-prone than others. Reducing the amount of cardio lessens the urge to binge or makes it disappear altogether.

    Increase your total calories

    Binge eaters tend to aggressively cut calories while leaning on willpower to deal with hunger and lack of energy. 

    But willpower is limited, so this strategy will backfire.
