The Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response Activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System
The autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) produces a tingling sensation with positive feelings when binaural sounds are presented through headphones. This crossmodal response is believed to…
Untangling the tingle: Investigating the association between the Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR), neuroticism, and trait & state anxiety

The Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is an intensely pleasant tingling sensation originating in the scalp and neck and is elicited by a range of online video-induced triggers. Many…
The role of visual expectations in acupuncture analgesia: A quantitative electroencephalography study
- Medicine, BiologyMolecular pain
The findings clarified the role of cognitive components of acupuncture treatment in acupuncture analgesia through the rubber-hand illusion and took a first step toward separating various components ofupuncture analgesia, i.e. visual, tactile, and body ownership, and utilizing those components to maximize analgesic effects.
A novel form of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation for the reduction of dysesthesias caused by spinal nerve dysfunction: A case series
- Medicine, PsychologyFrontiers in Human Neuroscience
The effectiveness of DM-TENS particularly for tingling and numbness was clearly higher and was reliable within the patients, and these results may suggest an effective treatment of dysesthesias in patients with spinal cord dysfunction.

University students’ Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) experiences in the light of a well-being theory
Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is an atypical and multisensory phenomenon in which specific audio-visual stimuli elicit a pleasurable, head-oriented tingling sensation and feelings of…
Dark, loud, and compact sounds induce frisson
- PsychologyQuarterly journal of experimental psychology
Cross-correlation results showed that the intensity of frisson was closely linked to the acoustic features of auditory stimuli, including their amplitude, spectral centroid, and spectral bandwidth, which suggests that proximal sounds with dark and compact timbre trigger frisson.
Placebo Effects in the Context of Religious Beliefs and Practices: A Resting-State Functional Connectivity Study
- PsychologyFrontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience
The present findings provide the first evidence that placebos in the context of religious beliefs and practices can change the experience of emotional salience and cognitive control which is accompanied by connectivity changes in the associated brain networks.

Physiological and psychological correlates of attention-related body sensations (tingling and warmth).
- PsychologyPhysiology international
In this study, attention-related body sensations were not significantly connected to changes in physiology, except warmth sensation, which was linked to decrease in muscle tension, which strengthened the hypothesis that attention- related body sensations are more the result of top-down functions, and the connection with peripheral processes is weak.

Psychophysical Evaluation of a Sanshool Derivative (Alkylamide) and the Elucidation of Mechanisms Subserving Tingle
- BiologyPloS one
Results show that lingual alkylamide evokes a complex sensation that is temporally dynamic and consistent with in vitro and in vivo experiments suggesting these compounds activate mechanosensitve neurons via blockade of KCNK two-pore potassium channels to induce the novel tingling sensation.
Physiological Basis of Tingling Paresthesia Evokedby Hydroxy-α-Sanshool
- BiologyThe Journal of Neuroscience
Sanshool provides a novel pharmacological tool for discriminating functional subtypes of cutaneous mechanoreceptors and represents an essential first step in identifying the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying tingling paresthesia that accompanies peripheral neuropathy and injury.
Placebo-Induced Somatic Sensations: A Multi-Modal Study of Three Different Placebo Interventions
- PsychologyPloS one
It is shown that placebo-induced sensations are frequent and can reach considerable intensity and extent, and a central etiology for this phenomenon is proposed.
Activation of lumbar spinal wide-dynamic range neurons by a sanshool derivative.

In anesthetized rats, the majority of WDR and low-threshold units responded to intradermal injection of IBA in a dose-related manner over a >5-min time course and exhibited tachyphylaxis at higher concentrations (1 and 10%).
- Psychology, BiologyPsychological science
P pervasive effects of categorization on magnitude estimations, affective stimulus evaluations, stimulus recognition, and breathing behavior are found, indicating the need for broadening perspectives on interoception to include basal processes of stimulus organization, in order for interoceptive bias to be understood.
