Sound sensitivity to people eating or coughing affects learning, a new study published in the journal “Applied Cognitive Psychology” found. The findings indicate that people who revealed they were sensitive to these types of sounds — even if they didn’t have clinical misophonia (sound sensitivity syndrome) — had a much harder time mastering and retaining information when they could hear a person chewing. This suggests that sound sensitivity has an impact on academic performance.
