HyperacusisResearch.org and the Maholchic family are holding a fundraiser to raise money for research into sound-induced pain. Donations will be matched by an anonymous donor up to a total of $10,000.
Hyperacusis Research funded the grant that led to the first complete hyperacusis literature review. They have recently funded two additional grants. One to investigate the neural mechanisms of hyperacusis with noise-induced auditory neurodegeneration and the other grant is to research the relationship between pain-associated proteins in the auditory pathway and hyperacusis. Hyperacusis research also engages with researchers who work to obtain funding from other sources, allowing for a wider net for hyperacusis research. There is much more to study and grass roots donations are critical to driving future research. More information can be found below:
