Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response
(ASMR): a flow-like mental state
Emma L. Barratt, Nick J. Davis
Excerpt: “… Further exploration into ASMR’s relationship with Misophonia may also yield interesting results. Studies examining the co-occurrence of Misophonia and ASMR may shed more light on the possibility that these two experiences are related, or potentially opposite poles of the same spectrum. Similarly, the relationship with synaesthesia suggested by the results of this research should be taken further, using more robust consistency measures to verify that the high instance of synaesthesia in ASMR capable individuals.”
Important Note: Not everyone with misophonia has ASMR as well (this is far from the case). However these two sensory disorders do co-exist for some people and that’s what this study examines.
