The total duration of the study is approximately 25 minutes. Your participation is voluntary however valuable, as it could provide a useful insight on the auditory manifestations of migraine, as well as aid the identification of possible differences between participants with and without migraines, this way facilitating further research on sound adaptations for migraine sufferers.
