In this podcast episode, I will be summarizing the third peer-reviewed research publication about ASMR and sharing an interview with the authors.
The paper is titled, ““An Examination of Personality Traits Associated with Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR)”)” and was published in the journal, Frontiers in Psychology on February 23, 2017. The authors are Beverley Fredborg, Jim Clark, and Stephen Smith from the University of Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada.
This podcast episode will cover the following topics:
What are the personality traits associated with ASMR-sensitive individuals?
What are the most intense ASMR triggers?
How they recruited participants and determined ASMR sensitivity.
The focus of their next ASMR research publication.
My co-investigators and I are still collecting data for our on-going ASMR research survey. That research survey has collected data from 13,000 individuals. Information about that research survey is HERE.
This blog post is an update about the data collected by my website polls which are located on the “First Time Visitor” page.
My prior summary of the website poll data was when there were data from about 150 people. You can read about that prior summary HERE.
This updated summary has website poll data from about 600 people.
This data is specific to the population of visitors to this website who take the website polls and may not be applicable to other populations.
Below is a short summary of the data, followed by the full data from the polls.
This is Part 3 of my blog post series on the first peer-reviewed paper about ASMR.
As a refresher, the paper is titled, “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR): a flow-like mental state”. It was authored by Emma Barratt and Nick Davis and was published on March 26th, 2015 in the journal PeerJ.
This post is going to focus on the meaning of some of the data, as well as highlight how future studies could build on the helpful foundation provided by the authors of this paper.
This post is mostly for students and researchers looking for ASMR research ideas. Just look for the sections in this post marked “Next steps” for potential ASMR research projects you could do.
Let’s begin by reviewing and understanding the methods and the participants, this will help to keep the overall meaning of the data in an appropriate scope.
The first peer-reviewed paper about ASMR has been published in the journal PeerJ.
I am highly excited about this event and very proud of the authors of this paper.
The paper is titled, “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR): a flow-like mental state” and is authored by Emma Barratt and Nick Davis. The authors are members of the Department of Psychology at Swansea University in the United Kingdom.
The publication was officially published as a peer-reviewed publication on March 26, 2015, but was initially published as a “PrePrint” on December 18, 2014.
The study was reviewed and approved by the Swansea University Department of Psychology Ethics Committee prior to the initiation of data collection.
This is such an important achievement that I will cover this event in several blog posts. This first post will simply focus on summarizing the data in the publication.
