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

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

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.

Characteristics of Kundalini-Related Sensory, Motor, and Affective Experiences During Tantric Yoga Meditation

Traditional spiritual literature contains rich anecdotal reports of spontaneously arising experiences occurring during meditation practice, but formal investigation of such experiences is limited.

Pranic energy sensations experienced by Indian adolescents: A cross-sectional study

Prana is the universal principle of energy or life-force, essential for survival. This vital energy can be felt by almost anybody with guidance and training. Objectives: The present study seeks to

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

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

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).

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.

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR): a flow-like mental state

Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is a previously unstudied sensory phenomenon, in which individuals experience a tingling, static-like sensation across the scalp, back of the neck and at

Psychobiological perspectives on somatoform disorders

Psychophysical Evaluation of a Sanshool Derivative (Alkylamide) and the Elucidation of Mechanisms Subserving Tingle

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

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

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%).

Categorical Interoception

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.
