ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response. Its a modern
concept, still under scientific discussion, wherein a person
experiences a pleasurable tingling in the head, scalp or other
peripheral regions of the body in response to an external stimuli.
The intensity of the response varies from …
Yes, ASMR does stand for autonomous sensory meridian response. It
is the effect of brain tingling triggered by certain visual and
To be completely honest, as of today we still do not know exactly
how, or why, it works.
ASMR has only just began to be taken seriously by psychologists, so
studies are still ongoing.
We do understand that certain triggers such as soft whispering and
the sound of soft chewing can trigger ASMR ef…
We are still unsure how or why ASMR works.
We have only just began seriously studying it, so information about
it is still vague.
The effects of ASMR depend on the individual.
The most common effect that most people feel is brain tingling.
Other effects include relaxation, calmness and sleepiness.
Yes, it can do.
The relaxed state that people enter into while experiencing the
massaging brain tingles can make them sleepy. It is being studied
as a sleep aid and is similar to meditation.
ASMR, or Autonomous sensory meridian response, affects different
people in different ways. The main effects of ASMR are head
tingling. Some people feel so relaxed when experiencing this
psychological phenomenon that they do feel sleepy.
It depends on the individual and how sensitive they are.
The feelings experienced from autonomous sensory meridian response
(ASMR) generally differ by person.
The main notable feelings are head tingling, shoulder relaxation,
calmness and sleepiness. Some people report other feelings such as
No single one person is credited for discovering ASMR, because the
effects of it have been known for centuries.
It is only recently in the 21st century that scientists are taking
it seriously and studying it more.
Yes, listening to soft whispering and watching the lips of a soft
whisperer is known to trigger ASMR responses. The most common
response is head tingling and relaxation. Some people feel sleepy
The characteristics of autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR)
differ by individual.
The main characteristics are head tingling, relaxation, calmness,
sleepiness, happiness and "headgasms".
The feelings associated with autonomous sensory meridian response
actually differ by person Some ASMR actions trigger different ASMR
responses in different people.
The common feelings are head tingling, relaxation, calmness and
Some people also report feeling shoulder tingling, thigh …
As of this moment in time, there is no scientific explanation. ASMR
has been known for centuries, but it has only recently started to
be taken seriously and investigated by scientists.
It is very difficult to study because the effects are psychological
rather than physical. Many psychologists have…
This is an opinion that differs by individual.
Some people enjoy ASMR as a relaxation technique. Other people are
not affected by it at all.
Autonomous means uncontrollable.
Sensory relates to the sensations felt.
Meridians are the sensitive points on our bodies
Response is the reaction.
The effects of ASMR are uncontrollable sensory responses that
affect one or two of our meridians.
This is really a matter of personal opinion.
Some people enjoy the relaxation from ASMR and will say yes.
However some people are not affected by it at all, so they may
ASMR is generally triggered by visual and sound stimuli. It can be
triggered by various things, but not everyone is affected by them
Some ASMR triggers are:
We cannot fully explain this yet. Scientific and psychological
studies are ongoing.
Soft whispering is relaxing to the listener, but for the majority
of people, it's watching the lips of a soft whisper that triggers
Actions that trigger ASMR differ by person. Some triggers affect
others while they have no affect on some.
Some of these actions are:
Hair play / brushing hair
Drawing / colouring
You can find plenty of these videos on Youtube. Just simply type
"ASMR" into the Youtube search box.
Yes. ASMR is an experimental psychology. This makes it a
Yes, watching someone gently crinkle a wrapper can trigger ASMR
responses in some people.
The response is triggered by listening to the crinkling while
watching the hands in action.
Yes, this is known as one of the ASMR triggers.
Watching someone gently chew gum and listening to the sounds of
them chewing can trigger the classic ASMR "brain tingles" in some
A quick search of Youtube reveals that the top popular youtubers
that specialise in ASMR are asmrkitten and m8keup.
This is one of the nicknames for ASMR because of the effects of it
ASMR is a euphoric response caused by giving attention to certain
stimuli (sound and visual).
ASMR affects a large chunk of the population. However there are
some people who reportedly do not experience the effects of ASMR.
We still don't completely understand it and are still investigating
In a way, it is a psychological phenomenon because we still don't
completely understand it.
It is being studied by scientists and psychologists.
There are no accurate figures because this effect is still being
studied and is not completely understood yet.
It is suggested that the majority of the population on Earth
experience ASMR, most of us probably don't even realise it.
ASMR is an experimental psychology at this time, because we do not
yet fully understand it.
Therefore yes, it is a neuroscience.
Yes, indeed it is.
Watching and listening to someone chew gum is known to trigger some
effects of ASMR.
Autonomous sensory meridian response, or ASMR, affects people who
are sensitive to visual and audio stimuli. We do not completely
understand it yet and it is still being studied.
We do know that it makes people calm and relaxed, but it only works
on people who are open to the idea. Those who are cr…
Yes. The effects of ASMR are psychological. The brain tingling that
people feel happens inside the brain.
We do not know if this is entirely true yet, because ASMR is still
being studied. It has been suggested that females trigger more ASMR
than males because they have softer voices.
Both of them define something peculiar or a quirk. They are both
used in definitions of psychological peculiarity.
It is difficult to answer this exactly. The name actually came from
a mixture of media reports and scientific studies. So no one person
can be credited.
ASMR is triggered by both visual and audio stimuli. It is possible
to experience ASMR through audio only, for example, listening to
soft whispers or listening to the sound of gentle chewing. Though
you are more likely to experience stronger sensations through using
both sound and visual.
Some studies have been conducted by various European and American
institutions and universities. ASMR is difficult to research
because the effects of it are psychological rather than physical.
An example of study is the Sutter Neuroscience Institute, which
have found out that ASMR can be used as a…
According to studies, yes it does.
ASMR can be used as a sleep aid because it relaxes people and calms
them. This state of relaxation can lead to gentle sleep.
ASMR has been referred to as a psychological high. It is not a drug
nor does it have the effects of drugs, but it does make people fell
calm and relaxed.
Yes, it is often referred to as a psychological high. But not in
the sense of a drug. By psychological high people mean that it
makes people feel calm, relaxed and happy.
ASMR is very relaxing. it causes "tingles" in the brain which feel
good to the person having the effects. It calms the person down and
relaxes them, similar to meditation. It is also a sleep aid.
This is still a matter of scientific study. We simply do not yet
understand why the triggers of ASMR trigger it.
The sound of the chewing needs to be soft and gentle to trigger
ASMR. Loud and fast chewing will likely just cause annoyance.
It is difficult to say who discovered it, because we have known
about the effects of ASMR for centuries, it has only recently been
named and recognised by scientists, so we do not know a great deal
about it right now.
ASMR aids relaxation because the effects that it triggers are good
feelings. The main effect is head tingling, referred to as
headgasms. These gentle head tingles cause the brain to become
relaxed. When one is relaxed, the heart slows to a peaceful rhythm.
ASMR causes the feelings of relaxation and brain tingling. The
brain tingling psychologically massages the brain, giving the same
effect as a physical back massage or meditation. When a person
becomes relaxed, their breathing slows and their heartbeat slows.
ASMR reduces stress in the same was a meditation or a massage.
Tingles in the brain caused by ASMR will psychologically massage
the brain and feel good. This is what causes relaxation and
reduction in stress.
ASMR relaxes the brain by psychologically "massaging" it, the
tingles you feel. This relaxation causes calmness and in some cases
makes people sleepy.
Both genders can cause ASMR triggers. However it is suggested that
females cause more than males. This is because females have a
naturally softer voice and tone.
ASMR and meditation are similar because both of them relax the mind
and cause nice tingling sensations through the body. They are both
used as a sleep and calming aid.
Although ASMR can be triggered by both males and females, it is
suggested that females cause more ASMR than males. This is because
females have softer voices than males.
We are not sure exactly. The effects of ASMR have been known for
centuries. However it is only very recently in this 21st century
that it has been named and properly studied.
ASMR is known to cause several feelings in the body. The common
ones are brain tingling, relaxation, calmness and sleepiness.
Soft whispering is a trigger for ASMR because it is relaxing to
listen to. It has to be soft, gentle whispering to work.
When researched on Youtube and Google we found two of the most
popular ASMR Youtubers. They are asmrkitten and m8keup.
It is both. ASMR is an experimental psychology, which means it is a
Awareness of ASMR has mostly spread through the use of social
networking online. The most popular platform for ASMR experiences
seems to be Youtube. There are also occasionally events related to
ASMR, such as "National Hug Your Brain Day.
The first Hug Your Brain Day event was held on April 24th 2010. The
event encouraged and allowed people to try ASMR triggers. Soon
after the event, ASMR grabbed the attention of scientists who now
study it actively.
They are trying to. ASMR is difficult to research because the
effects of it are psychological rather than physical.
Because it is so difficult to research. ASMR is psychological
rather than physical, so it is not as easy to monitor and research
because we cannot see things that are psychological.
The popular answer to this question is because of the "braingasms".
The main effect of ASMR is a nice brain tingling feeling, which
relaxes you, calms you down and sometimes makes you sleepy.
In a way they are. Both meditation and ASMR require the person to
be open minded and in a quiet room in order to work. Both
meditation and ASMR relax the individual and calm them, sometimes
making them sleepy or allowing fresh ideas to pour into their
Psychologists studying both have found …
Psychologists have only just recently began taking ASMR seriously.
ASMR causes brain tingles which feel like your brain is being
These brain tingles are often referred to as "Braingasms". Though
they are nothing like an orgasm at all.
Other effects are relaxation, cal…
Yes, there are a few ongoing studies.
It has been found that ASMR and meditation are extremely similar.
ASMR is being researched as a sleep aid and as a technique for
psychological sessions such as anger management and anxiety
Since this is still being studied, we are not yet entirely sure
why. It is suggested that ASMR only works on sensitive people.
So far we have discovered that ASMR and meditation are actually
very similar and produce similar results. In order for meditation
to work, the individual needs to be open …
Unfortunately there is no way to properly measure this. It is
estimated however that the majority of the population on our planet
will experience ASMR at least once. Sometimes without realising it.
In theory, yes.
Most people will experience ASMR at least once. Sometimes without
even realising it.
I think it's something that has been around for a long time. But
only til recently has it been recognized by the masses and given an
official name of ASMR. I've been able to trigger "ASMR" on my own
since I was a child but had no idea what to call it, and most, if
not everyone I knew had no idea wha…
