In this podcast episode, I will be summarizing the data from the first peer-reviewed research publication about ASMR.
The paper is titled, “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR): a flow-like mental state”, is authored by Emma Barratt and Nick Davis, and was published March 26, 2015.
You will hear about the data from the paper related to these questions:
- Why do people watch ASMR videos?
- What are common ASMR triggers?
- When do people first experience ASMR?
- Do ASMR videos help people to feel less depressed?
- Do ASMR videos lessen the symptoms of chronic pain?
- And more.

- what she perceives as the next big step for the ASMR community,
- where the understanding and application of ASMR might be in 10 years,
- how ASMR is part of her daily life,
- and more.

I’m kicking off 2016 with a new look for the website.
The banner, content pages, and news blog are all basically the same.
The new addition is the Home Page (AKA Welcome Page, Landing Page, Main Page, etc.).
I think this new Home Page will make it much easier to understand and access all the content of the website.
Come take a look. Click the link below to view the new Home Page.
