Josephine Flockton is a master’s graduate, specializing in neuroscience and neuroimaging from the University of York, England, and is pursuing a PhD in cognitive neuroscience.
This survey will gather invaluable pilot data about individuals’ experiences of ASMR and its potential therapeutic benefits, to support the rationale of her PhD research and invite further study.
Her PhD research thesis aims to be the first to explore what happens in the brain during an ASMR experience using the neuroimaging technique of magnetoencephalography (MEG), to further our understanding of the phenomenon and its relation to pain circuits in the brain.
This initial project is titled: “Experiencing ASMR: A Pilot Study.”
Josephine’s supervisors for this project are Dr Daniel Baker and Dr Cade McCall, professors in the Psychology Department at the University of York, England.
Josephine is looking for participants to take her online survey, which has been reviewed and approved by an Ethics Committee.
The survey is open to individuals who experience ASMR and are over the age of 18.
The survey is fully anonymous , the results will only be used for academic purposes, and it will take about 10 minutes maximum to complete.
The survey will remain open until up to 300 participants have participated.
The findings of this study can be made available upon request at the end of data collection, and analysis, which will depend upon the time frame needed to gather up to 300 participant responses.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the supervising researchers of the study, Dr Daniel Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr Cade McCall (email@example.com).
