Autonomous sensory meridian response facts for kids
Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR), sometimes auto sensory meridian response, is a tingling sensation that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It shows as a tingling of the skin (paresthesia) and has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia.
People who experience ASMR have a "low-grade euphoria" characterized by "a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin". ASMR is most commonly triggered by specific auditory or visual stimuli, and less commonly by intentional attention control. A genre of videos which intend to stimulate ASMR has emerged, of which over 13 million are published on YouTube.
