Dr Hashir Aazh interviews Nico Remmert who is a PhD student at Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany about his upcoming presentation at the 6th International Conference on Hyperacusis and Misophonia which is planned for Friday-Saturday 1-2 July 2022 at Birkbeck College, University of London, London, United Kingdom. Nico’s research is on Misophonic Avoidance Behaviours that can adversely contribute to the maintenance of symptoms and have an impact on treatment outcomes. They created a new instrument, the Misophonic Behavioural Avoidance Test (M-BAT), which makes use of an individual’s actual reactions to specific sounds, such as omitting an expected stimulus or escaping a sound exposure, to infer anticipating and reactive avoidance strategies. Their results suggest that M-BAT provides an ecologically valid measurement of directly observed misophonic avoidance behaviour and therefore helps to capture and understand the nature of misophonia. Nico works with Prof. Steffi Pohl at Freie Universität Berlin, Dept. of Methods and Evaluation/Quality Assurance.
