Why Do Some Noises Drive Me Crazy?
"You want to strangle people. Who Chew with their Mouth Open? I've been does this sound of slurping noodles drive you mad. What about chewing gum? Heavy breathing. Frequent sighing or chronic snoring does the sound of of flatware dragging and clinking across a plate. Fill you with UN ending rage if so you might just have Missa Fonje Sonja and you're not alone but what is it. There are still a lot of questions about this relatively new diagnosis. But we know that some sounds drive certain people people acutely bonkers and I am not talking about slate annoyances or just getting irritated. I'm talking about having certain sounds trigger powerful intense feelings ranging from panic anxiety to anger and yes even arousal if ordinary irritation would be three on a one one to ten scale than this stuff is more of a twelve or if you ask someone with a two million. The list of trigger sounds goes on on the PS. Like the sounds of Pop. Kiss noises plastic bags and even pouring water can all make missa phony sufferers. I furious so what exactly is going on here. The term missile fonje means hatred of sounds and it was made by two neuroscientist. Scientists Powell and Margaret Gesture. Bof Most experts believe that. Mississippi is a neurological problem. Rather than a problem with an individual's hearing System in two thousand thirteen doctor Judith. Krauthammer argued that the problem could be traced back to areas of the brain called the insular cortex in the anterior cingulate Cortex a dysfunctional assessment of neural signals in the brain triggers. This intense discomfort. Interestingly the enough these areas are also hubs for processing anger pain and sensory information. There are competing views of the causes of Misa Fonje August August are molar believes that dysfunction is in the central nervous system that it's hard wired and people and is a physiological abnormality rather than an auditory disorder. Powell gesture bov believes that people can't be born with miss a phony but that there might be genetic factor in the mix currently experts think it develops in late childhood and early adolescence and worsens over time missing. Phony is also often confused with other such as CD. phobic disorders or hyper accuses. People with hyper accuses are overly sensitive to certain frequencies or ranges of sound however if you have Missa Fonje the volume of your trigger. Sound probably doesn't matter. Miss Phone can develop from a range of possible oh factors in patients with other audio. Disorders can also develop the condition. According to audiologist Miriam Westcott tonight. A sufferers can also develop mischief over time Westcott argues that some causes for Misa phony may include an obsession with sounds that irritated or scared Zhu in childhood pointing to a possible psychological factor. So all right if we put all of this together than it seems that experts agree on a few things things. One people with Misa phony aren't just cranky jerks they have no control over their reaction to Misa Fonje develops over time and three. It may likely be caused by multiple factors and there's a little bad news at this point. There's no universally recognized and effective effective treatment for mischief so if the sound of snoring smacking and other mouth noises turns you into a monster. Then you'll be glad to. I know that research on continues as I'm speaking to you.

"You said something that struck me as something so important. I wrote it down immediately. You said you can't reason with someone out of a position that they weren't reasoned into in the first place that if they have I suppose you mean if they they have a feeling connection to their position and it's mainly the feeling that got them into that position. You're not going to change or affect them much with logic absolutely because you have to address it kind of okay somebody has its stance ounce. They have an opinion you disagree with the deeply they feel something about economics or social policy totally in contrast to urine. How can they believe? I believe that how can they think that and the key things to figure out what circumstances brought them to that point and and those circumstances have far more to do with emotion than they do with cognition mean huge predictors of people's political stances about social the issues revolve around how anxiety prone they are how much having their hands dirty distresses them how much much sitting down on a seat that somebody else was sitting on and it's Kinda warm and clammy does that kind of creep you out or what how much does have beauity make you anxious versus making you excited and it turns out those are hugely important predictors of people who aren't being social progresses versus Social Conservatives servivce yeah you remind me of a study where people were presented with an unpleasant smell yes and for the next few minutes they were. We're more conservative in their response to to question two. How did that work? Wonderful study came out of psychologist at L. A. Paul Bloom and others were you take people and essentially give him the questionnaire about their political attitudes about social issues economic issues shoes geopolitical issues and if they're in a room with a horrible smell of garbage in there and it turns out you can get a little like commercial vials oils of garbage smell to tidy up your home yes exactly in an even worse bodily odors than that turned out. If you put somebody in a room with a bad smell in it they tend to become more conservative about some social issues does nothing to the Geo political stances. This is the economic stances. What's that about? What is there about? Why would they do that? What's the rationale that has been proposed? There's a totally wonderful piece of neurobiology biology that helps explain that it's part of the brain called the insular CORTEX. If your your basic boring off the rack mammal with the insular the cortex is about is telling you if you've just bitten into some disgusting piece of food if it's rancid if it's toxic insular CORTEX reacts reacts triggers hold these reflexes you spit it out you gag. Maybe you throw up abuse scrunch up your face. This is all part of this mammalian response to to protect you from Gusta Torey discussed disgusting toxic spoiled food and it turns out works the same way and us and humans you stick somebody in a brain scanner and you some help persuade them to bite into this rancid whatever and insular cortex activates we can do something fancier than that. You don't give the person something disgusting to eat you prompt them to think about eating or cockroach and you activate the CORTEX home. I just just when you said that digest voted for Genghis Khan gets there proof inaction. All of this was one big experiment on you. How in what may what's the connection in between smelling something disgusting and exhibiting more conservative attitude? I don't get the connection yeah okay 'cause that comes from the the utterly amazing thing that the human insular Cortex does in addition to discussing tastes and smells or thinking about disgusting ones you tell somebody about about some Disgusting Act. The Nazis did this. The white supremacists did that. This is what happened in this massacre. This is something something heartbreaking something and the insular cortex activates us in humans it also does moral disgust and what that tells you is you look at the activity of like a single insular cortex neurons and you can tell it's just tasted some disgusting food or if it's contemplated some disgusting moral act so it makes it makes them moral of evaluation moral judgment and is that somehow somehow linked to a conservative view because it seems to me that you could have you could be disgusted at things that a more liberal view would be disgusted by and I don't see how you shifted over to a more conservative. When can you explain that great yeah well what you wind up seeing is this we associate this role discussed with moral disgust with that's why is something that's upsetting enough off makes feel queasy makes us feel sick to our stomach makes us feel like puking what you see? In terms of the political stances is this utterly league cruel great finding which is on the average social conservatives have a lower threshold for visceral disgust than and do social progressives even studies looking at the number of cleaning products in the bathrooms of social progressives versus conservatives in there's a difference. That's what you have is just on a visceral level. If you're very prone to finding all sorts of things to make you feel a little bit squeamish and a little golf and you're more prone to decide that them and their different behaviors rather than being cool or exciting were neutral. Is that much more likely that you conclude is just Kinda disgusting and it's wrong wrong wrong.

"I think the insular CORTEX can have a very lonely feral child. I don't know you don't know couldn't communicate but but I'm going to bet that if we start looking more carefully at that you wouldn't let's see what we think of as awareness of awareness primordial of it but that it would emerge with relating to other humans right I mean I can I can <hes> I can be skeptical because no one knows I'd. I'm on your side in the sense that not only our bodies but our social interactions are social mosaics are crucially important in determining who aren't how well the self emerges in in a social matrix right there yeah and Washington conscious also an unconscious probably a little more flimsy than it seems that feels well we tonight right we medicine thanks to it's probably we not as robust as it feel. It has something to do with the wiring diagram in the brain and the fact that it's a small world network <hes> the fact that it's not just a a little lattice but different parts of the brain can communicate with each other in different ways because we do studies and when you go to sleep or you're on drugs or you're anesthetized <hes> that networks were dissolves. Jobs in local parts can talk to each other but it's not this wide-scale coherence so there's a lot of stuff going on to make consciousness and the fact that we don't fully understand it right now. L. Is the least surprising thing in the world to me. Yeah I mean traumas caused the difficult problem with heart-to-heart problem. Are you in his camp or not but I had him on the podcast conversation conversation yeah I was GONNA listen. I didn't frustrates me. But what did you take away from that well. David is really smart and I disagree with them about most things that we care about he he is. He describes himself as a naturalist so he doesn't believe in God or the supernatural but he's not a physical list so he thinks that the physical world is not enough to describe the world. There's a separate set of mental properties that the world has and this leads him to be something called a Pan Psych est where he says even individual electrons have a little tiny bit of consciousness live cabinets this Lebanon menards something like that and so. I think you know I just can't go to me. Once you get there. You go like Oh come on. You're right right it. All feels like human in endowing things to try to help explain stuff as opposed to just taking what his but that you can actually observe. I think that's exactly right. I think that the the the the great progress made by people like Einstein was largely involved and whoever who invented the many worlds interpretation a lot of what they did was just therapeutic. It's not just physical. They said look this stuff. You don't need this stuff. We can explain this complicated stuff in terms of a much smaller set of simple stuff. Isn't science ultimately higher higher higher probability of correctness when it's more elegant it's razor. There are those who disagree with yes I think so he just comes razor. He do yeah who yeah so it. I don't want to speak for anybody else but there is this in particle physics right. We've we've long had this idea of naturalness like we don't know what exactly is going on beyond what we've looked at but we wanted to be natural in some way we don't want it to be like finely tuned and if you measure a number number and it's three we wanted to to plus one you don't want it to be a million three minus a million. It'd be something delicately..

"So doctors who are not trained as a diction specialist often misinterpret, the reason for this as an executive disorder and they prescribed benzodiazepines, the combination makes the attic feel better, but then the Bengals have their own withdrawal, and we continue in the cycle of escalating, use doctors and doctors endorsed esscalation research supports this treatment, because it does modulate some pain in the insular cortex firing associated with, but not in the long-term again, short-term pain control. But the fact that opioids and benzoate concurrently have disastrous results often prescribed together, new sparingly, they can be affective for some paintings -iety, but unfortunately, this regimen often leads to escalate a dosing but. Issue with the combination is that they are deadly combination opiates suppressed respiration benzodiazepine, suppress restorations both affect the central nervous systems control apparatus for respiration, but together they are synergistic. In other words, they are much more powerful than either alone. It's hard to overdose on an opiate orally, hard to reduce on a benzodiazepine orally, easy to overdose on the two together. And of course, once basic bodily functions are compromised. The brain is deprived of oxygen the cardiovascular system shuts down and people are dying. It should be noted that taking these drugs together can be extremely dangerous. Even when taken as directed this is, again, the problem, they took it just the way the doctor told them to, and they still died the medical community is now being courage to avoid this combination in two thousand sixteen the United States food and Drug administration issued a black box warning nearly four hundred products to warn about the dangers of combining his. Medications the same year the centers for disease control prevention issued guidelines on opiates, which urge physicians avoid prescribing the potentially lethal combination. And yet, they continue to do it patients.

"Well. This study, it's not showing up the interior. It's it's really the anterior insular cortex was along with eventual medial prefrontal cortex area sorta I mean, it's a distinct. So the media prefrontal cortex is again part of that prefrontal lobe area. This is more inside the brain prefrontal lobe got so deeper deeper deeper stuff yet deeper physiologically deeper more closer to limbic enough. And in like, I said that Interros -ception usually that feeling your own feelings stuff feel like the influence really going to be. We may have the decade of the inflow coming up one of these days 'cause I feel like that's where all the bodily based information sort of. Noted the middle on the insulin sort of seal that go now to do with this, exactly. And we deal with all the time in chronic pain and trauma. That's all not working right for some reason. We don't really know what that means. We'll variously, but I I wanna get back to the sort of the robber's cave and the tribal stuff and talk more about that. And I just. I'm just concerned about that. That's the thing that sort of I spent a lot of time thinking about and it we just keep going down further down that rabbit hole. It seems. So I think that the most modern kind of data that we're hundred percent sure this works because it's been replicated lots and lots of times in a whole bunch of different ways. The is so robber's cave started off in it is kind of principle. It was saying you don't need centuries of conflict in order to lead to people doing, you know, group type, you know, group in in group out group dynamics, you don't need for there to be a five hundred year history or a wars or the civil war, whatever it led to what's known is the minimal group paradigm. And is that got more and more extreme explain their that got Korea that data. Yeah. So that's it's really fastening..

"The affect being communicated by that you're listening to the words in the story, and then you're listening to your body's reaction to it. And I could really tell how my body reacted to just tell me which is telling me that it's one of these when Iraq like that. I knew it was one of two things. It was either multiple or or bogus one of the other, and and I just had a feeling I know it's when you're talking about call your time because I had this very strong thing. I thought, oh no, this one's multiple. I just tell that. So is it? Are you detecting the switch in personality that the person has, or are you getting that this person has this disorder before they. Switch personalities before they switch. So that's incredible, which I, there's something about them. I, they tell me about their trauma or something, or they seem dissociate in some way to me. And again, that disconnect, I feel like literally in my body and so that informs me what is dissociated mean for people who do is what happens in the in the setting of trauma essentially when when when the you know we have these was called his Jacksonian dissolution, which is our our body as we get more and more stressed or distressed. We break down into lower and lower sort of strategies within our evolutionary biology. So we start with fighter flight. If we get if we get about to attack with Ghafur flight. And then we go from fighter flight to freeze, which is a freeze response, which is sort of a way of conserving energy and then -ticipant attack when you can't escape this, it's apparently a high level survival. And then finally, there's psychological sort of survival, which is with the dissociating from the situation. People describe hovering above it or blacking out, or you know, kinds of different ways and young kids that are severely traumatized when their body is the source of the misery will sort of cut off and dissociate from their body. Interesting. And and then their body becomes all kinds of trouble to us attorney later, not just from the manifestation of medical problems, but they the experience, everything that comes out of their bodies as overwhelming and disorganized. So they'll they, they'll describe it as pain or misery. They can't quite get it when you these. Unfortunately, the my profession isn't really taught on this, but I spent a lot of time working with people like this, and I just found you have to stop them. Go stop, put exactly. It would exact. They'll just go pain, pain, pain, pain pain do you? Okay. Hold on. Hold on. You said pain, but then you describe weakness, so, so let's go here. What is this? And you have to really break it down for them because they can't process. They just overwhelms them, and there's a part of the brain called the insular cortex. That probably is the source of all that chaotic. Misery, men and literally litter. When we dissociate your, your brain doesn't wire. So trauma therapies are all about getting access to those disconnected parts and bringing them back into the integrated whole. So the fighter flight, that's anxiety. Lot of people have that right among other things that can be an executive for fighter flight is literally a, you know, it's a auto Nommik, sympathetic on response. Anxiety includes a sympathetic response..

"Well of course i my my pet hypothesis is that the most critical rewiring is going on in the frontal cortex and we and weirdly enough we have just finished a study in left or and both in primates and in roses we can't do this and humans obviously where we looked at the sect's for example of marijuana on the on i'm going to bet the ventral medial prefrontal cortex well you're getting very close frontal or a frontal system it it it's the insular cortex insulin the and yes and the media and what happens is that after repeated exposure to marijuana these unpublished i hate to talk about them in public but they are all all reading abstract form it and that's been reported there's a single molecule called d c c which is cr really creepy sounding because it's deleted in colorectal cancer and this this gene happens to be very critical not only in being absent in certain forms of cancer but in the brain it helps to guide doping circuits and only does it in the adults and bring and no other time and we found the this little molecule this this you know messenger are in expression was very dramatically changed in the it was dramatically up regulated in the front in in the insular cortex in adolescence are i wonder will mediate some of the unusual changes we see with cannabis adolescence and that is precisely where the research is going if another thing i just i just have to finish the the most interesting thing is that the up regulation was completely mitigated in the presence of connecticut dial.

"Absolutely and and you know the sort of interesting thing is the more advanced these studies get the more brain areas get implicated so there are some really interesting studies looking at for instance the insular cortex which is responsible for monitoring signals from within the body so it's a logical place for for this function to to to to be located but it there there's all sorts of other parts of the brain that are involved with you know assessing future risk or monitoring the outside environment and so you know i've been following this area of research really closely an and maybe five years ago if you'd asked me i would have said oh it's pretty cool the relief the release zeroing in on the insular cortex and its links to the two to the motor cortex which is what sends the signals out to to your muscles and i think that's where it where it's going to be but at here at as as time has gone on more studies come under the okay but you also have to include the prefrontal cortex and you also have to include the anterior cingulate cortex which assesses year russian of effort and all of a sudden it's like well hang on we've now listed all regions of the brain so it it is they're up is there a central governor or is this just is this a behavior that describes how our brains work to make sure that we don't push ourselves absolute lutely to our limits and you're one of the one of the sort of vivid images that no excuses in when he gives talks hill put up a slide of just after the finish of the nineteen ninety six olympic marathon which is when a fat a south african runner wanted so he likes that picture but the guy came second was i think from south korea and maybe just three seconds behind and the two of them are jogging around the track waving with their flags and he says look what are you notice about the guy in second place east he's not dead and you think each eu think about that if you're if you're finishing a marathon your three seconds from being immortal as the olympic champion of course you can be trying as hard as you can this guy didn't leave anything in reserve at least.
