Participate in a research study about ASMR, Synaesthesia, and Frisson

Gina Gilpin is a graduate student, pursuing an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London (UCL), England.

Her research thesis is investigating the personality and empathy traits of individuals who experience ASMR, frisson (e.g., music chills) and mirror-touch synaesthesia.

Her thesis is titled: “Investigating Various Atypical Multisensory Experiences and the Associated Personality and Empathy Traits.”  Gina’s faculty advisor for the study is Professor Sophie Scott, Director of the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at UCL.

Gina is looking for participants to take her online survey, which has been reviewed and approved by an Ethics Committee.  The only requirements for the survey are that you must be right-handed, English speaking, and over 18 years old.

The survey is fully anonymous and the results will only be used for academic purposes.  The survey will take 30 minutes maximum to complete.  The survey will remain open until the end of August 2020.

The findings of this study will be made available upon request at the end of the research project, which will be on September 22, 2020.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the primary researcher Gina Gilpin (ucjugmd@ucl.ac.uk) or her advisor Professor Sophie Scott (sophie.scott@ucl.ac.uk).
