A variety of unusual and challenging auditory events may be associated with excessive loudness, pitch anomalies, aversions to specific sounds, or the sensation of pain in the ears. This presentation will review mechanisms associated with disordered sound tolerance (DST), including hyperacusis, diplacusis, and auditory nociception. Audiologists lack consensus regarding the terminology associated with such disorders (i.e., misophonia) and distinctions will be made between different labeling schemes. Relations between audiometric status and DST will be reinforced using clinical data.

Dept. of ASLP; East Tennessee State University

Marc Fagelson, PhD, is Professor of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology at East Tennessee State University. He teaches classes in audiologic assessment, pathologies, medical audiology, and tinnitus management. His work at the James H. Quillen Mountain Home VAMC tinnitus clinic began in 2001, and since that time has enrolled more than 1000 patients in the clinic. This clinic for veterans has illuminated the powerful links between tinnitus and posttraumatic stress disorder, and patients thus challenged by psychological injury and tinnitus are the focus of Dr. Fagelson's research. He has published several articles and presented results from the clinical activity at national and international meetings, and recently served as co-editor with David Baguley for the books Tinnitus: Clinical and Research Perspectives, and Hyperacusis and Disorders of Sound Tolerance: Clinical and Research Perspectives..
