Brain Structure is Different in Noise Sensitive Folks

  Larger grey matter volume has been found in a study of noise sensitive individuals in their amygdala and hippocampal brain regions by MRI analyses.
  People with higher noise sensitivity enjoy music as much as others, however, they prefer NOT to have music in the background.
  This new physiologic finding with an anatomic correlate is important as noise sensitivity is a recognized risk factor for heart disease and disturbed sleep.
