Some People Get 'Brain Tingles' From These Slime Videos. What's Behind The Feeling?

When scientist Giulia Poerio was a little girl, she saysshe would experience this very peculiar — and distinct — feeling: "a warm, tingling sensation that starts at the crown of the head, almost like bubbles on the scalp."

Even more peculiar? It was triggered by specific sounds or gentle movements, "like watching my mom brush her hair or put makeup on," she recalls, or having her feet measured for school shoes or a teacher explain something to her very carefully.

That feeling now has a name: ASMR, described by those who experience it as involuntary "brain tingles" that are deeply calming and relaxing — and sometimes euphoric. And in the past decade, it has spawned a whole universe of online videos meant to trigger that feeling.

These videos, which have racked up millions of views online, are often used to usher sleep or relieve stress. While some "ASMRtists" role-play scenarios (like this nine-hour video of a clinician coaxing you to sleep), others use props like a brush or paper. They'll act out classic ASMR triggers, such as light tapping, whispering, chewing or someone doing a manual task in a careful way (Bob Ross painting videos is a favorite), using high-quality microphones. All these videos are meant to induce that tingling sensation Poerio experienced as a kid, which is shared by untold others.

But what does science have to say about this phenomenon? Soon to be a lecturer at the University of Essex, Poerio is among the first to attempt scientific research on ASMR. She spoke with NPR's science podcast Short Wave and gave us a few quick takeaways.

ASMR DarlingYouTube

1) ASMR has its roots in Internet lore, not science.

The first time that ASMR was discussed online, according to the website ASMR University, was in a 2007 thread called "Weird Sensation Feels Good" on the website Over the years, people with lifelong brain tingles began to find each other online and define the feeling among themselves. In 2010, Jennifer Allen dubbed it ASMR, which stands for "autonomous sensory meridian response."

But science is pretty mum on ASMR. Research is minimal, with roughly a dozen peer-reviewed, published studies on the topic. Without standard diagnostic criteria, it's unknown what percentage of the population experiences it. ASMR isn't even in the dictionary, though Merriam-Webster did add the term to its Words We're Watching list this year. Still, its popularity on the Internet continues to grow: The Super Bowl even aired a commercial this February featuring Zoë Kravitz drumming a beer with her fingernails — ASMR style.

2) ASMR is not the same thing as getting turned on.

Scientists who have studied ASMR say the feeling is not linked to sexual arousal.

In a 2018 study, published in the journal PLOS One, Poerio and a team of researchers hooked up dozens of participants who felt ASMR to biological feedback machinery.

"On average, heart rate decreased [by more than three beats per minute] when people watched ASMR videos, which is exactly the opposite of what you'd expect if it was a sexually arousing feeling," says Poerio, lead author of the paper.

However, ASMR participants also experienced increased skin conductance levels, a measure of autonomic nervous system arousal in the body. Taken together — lowered heart rate but heightened skin conductance — this pattern may be indicative of the emotional complexity of ASMR, which is both relaxing and euphoric, Poerio says.

"It's a little bit like music-induced chills or awe-inspired chills," says Poerio. "So sometimes if you hear an amazing speech — like a Martin Luther King speech — you might get those kind of those goose bumps, those shivers up your spine, which is a really kind of complex emotional aesthetic response that some people experience and other people don't."

3) The brains of people who experience ASMR may be slightly different from those of the rest of us (but scientists aren't sure how).

A 2015 study by Canadian researchers, published in Social Neuroscience, used an fMRI machine to scan the brains of 11 people who reported experiencing ASMR. They were not watching ASMR videos or other ASMR-triggering content.

The researchers looked at a part of the brain called the default mode network, which is associated with things such as daydreaming, mind-wandering and self-referential thought. They discovered that among these 11 ASMR participants, their brains were less able to inhibit sensory and emotional response compared with 11 control participants.

"We're getting loads of information from the senses all the time. As somebody who experiences ASMR, you may be less able to inhibit the link between what's coming in from the senses and the emotional reaction that you have," says Poerio, who was not involved in this study.

Keep in mind: This is one of just a handful of studies that have been done on the subject. The report concludes, "This initial study of the neural substrates of ASMR will hopefully serve as a catalyst for future investigations of this intriguing condition."

4) Whispering? Slime? Eating pickles? There's no set definition of ASMR, and the phenomenon keeps evolving online.

Online trends are getting slapped with the ASMR label all the time.

Slime videos are a recent example. Circulating on Instagram and YouTube, the videos show human hands poking and prodding a substance that's part solid, part liquid. The slime produces all kinds of sounds, from squelching to crunching to smacking.

Is slime an ASMR trigger? Maybe for some but not for everyone. For Poerio, slime videos fall more into another category of popular online videos called "oddly satisfying," rather than being a classic ASMR trigger. At the same time, she adds, the more that ASMR is linked to new trends and triggers, the more its meaning could change for people on the Internet.

"There's been quite a lot of interlocking between different kinds of trends. ASMR and slime and things like mukbang(live eating shows that began in South Korea) have all kind of piggybacked onto the ASMR trend."

5) The only way to know if you feel ASMR is to pop on a pair of headphones.

Not everyone experiences ASMR, but you won't know unless you try it. May we suggest listening to our podcast Short Wave for a sample? And if you recoil, don't fret. ASMR isn't for everyone, but those slime videos sure are mesmerizing.

Slime Stretch

You may have heard at some point that kids across the country are obsessed with slime. Slime entrepreneurs have even popped up online, with some selling their wares on Etsy. Others simply post Instagram videos of themselves massaging different types of slime—videos that can nab more than 100,000 views in a week.

It seems bizarre that people would spend any amount of time watching a person play with what amounts to DIY Play-Doh, but these videos are hugely popular—and it may have something to do with a phenomenon known as autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR). The condition usually causes a relaxing tingling in a person’s scalp and the back of their neck, and can extend into the rest of the body in response to particular sounds, smells, or visuals, according to the ASMR Lab.

If YouTube videos are any indication, the most popular ASMR stimuli are whispering, tapping, watching someone have their hair brushed, and repetitive tasks like folding laundry. However, people can also experience ASMR from a bevvy of events like getting their hair cut or listening to music—there are a wide range of triggers and what works for one person may not work for you. ASMR slime videos may fit the bill—or not.

There is little scientific research on the phenomenon—the first scientific paper on it was published on the open-access journal PeerJ in 2015. That study had nearly 500 people who subscribed to Facebook or Reddit ASMR groups fill out a questionnaire about their online ASMR habits and why they engaged in them. Most people said they watched the videos to help them relax, de-stress, and get to sleep. (Only five percent said they watch the videos for sexual reasons.)

W. Christopher Winter, M.D., of Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine, and author of the upcoming book, The Sleep Solution: Why Your Sleep is Broken and How to Fix It, tells SELF that ASMR is similar to what people experience with white noise—there are no surprises in these videos, and it helps shift people into a zen-like state.

ASMR seems to need an emotional component to it, and Winter says that’s not accidental. “Some things may remind you of your mother or being a kid,” he says. “I’d guess that it’s no accident that a lot of the videos of someone whispering feature an attractive woman, which make you think of your mom whispering to you when you went to sleep.” Those memories the videos evoke are likely comforting, and can shift people into a more relaxed state that then helps them fall asleep, he says.

Gail Saltz, M.D., a psychiatrist and the author of The Power of Different, tells SELF that the slime popularity may simply be a mental association with being a kid. “Childhood memories are often intense, simplified, and have that magical quality to them,” she says. “You were nurtured at that time.”

Repetitive behaviors that are connected to the sense of touch can also be very soothing for some people, Saltz says, which may be why people like to massage their own slime for ASMR or watch videos of someone doing the action to elicit the memory of doing it themselves. Children can be soothed by repetitive motions, like massaging slime or Play-Doh, and that doesn’t necessarily change over a person’s lifetime, Saltz says.

ASMR can vary from person to person because it’s all about perception, licensed clinical psychologist John Mayer, Ph.D., author of Family Fit: Find Your Balance in Life, tells SELF. “We all perceive experience in a different way even though it is the same experience,” he explains. For example, while one person may find the sound of someone typing comforting (if, say, they had a parent who worked on a computer at home), others may associate the sound with office work and become more stressed when they hear it.

If you watch ASMR slime videos (or just any old ASMR videos) to go to sleep, Winter says there's no reason why you should stop. “It’s the 2017 version of counting sheep,” he says. “If you feel like it’s enhancing your ability to fall asleep, that’s great.” However, if you find that you struggle to go to sleep without watching an ASMR video, he recommends taking a break from videos every now and then and mentally conjuring up the image of someone massaging slime or having their hair brushed. That, too, should help kick you into relaxation mode and help you catch some zzzs.

What is ASMR? A term coined in 2010, autonomous sensory meridian response, more commonly referred to as ASMR, is described as that tingling sensation a person feels in response to certain visual or auditory stimuli. In YouTube, these stimuli are usually the video recording of whispering voices, tapping of objects, eating, or other weird soft sounds created with various objects. If you start Googling ASMR, you'll enter a whole new universe. Here are some local and Asian videos that will keep you glued on your screens – some compilations are just weird, others are entertaining, relaxing, and oddly satisfying.

It’s Slime. And It’s Satisfying.


The internet has become synonymous with stress itself. Is slime, that substance between liquid and solid, an antidote?

ImageSlime has emerged as a bright, bouncy symbol of girlhood.

One of the internet’s greatest features is satisfaction on demand. Dial up a video tagged “satisfying” and conjure a mesmerizing sensation from your screen. Beautiful bars of soap cut into ribbons, fresh dough squeezed through a pasta maker, icing piped onto a cookie, a spider weaving its web — they scratch some kind of mental itch. The content seems to bypass the brain to access our bodies directly. And satisfaction incarnate is slime, that substance suspended at the boundaries between liquid and solid, and the onscreen and the physical.

First popularized by Instagram users in Thailand and Indonesia, slime content has invaded the satisfaction internet and oozed into the American middle school. Slime is an art form, a community and an industry: sensory gratification tubbed and sold. From mundane household materials — laundry detergent, glitter, glue — springs an exotic material.


Though this bright, pliant blob is a natural star of the visual internet, it longs to be touched, stretched, bounced, squeezed and swirled. It can be soft and fluffy, milky and glossy, smooth and buttery, or thick and crunchy. Twist and fold slime in the right way and it will sigh pleasantly — in the form of bubble pops, kisses or a squishy clicking noise that slimers have termed the “thwock.” Slime is a courier for smells, too. The most beguiling specimens are scented like sweet fruits and flowers.

The only sense slime does not activate is taste. Instead, it offers the idea of food. Slimes have always drawn visual connections to cotton candy and soft-serve, but lately they have been more explicitly styled like desserts. Chloe Park, the 32-year-old slimer behind the artful outfit Slime New York, says that her all-time best-selling slime is Cotton Candy Squish, a soft, thick, pink-and-blue concoction that sells for $8 per 3-ounce tub.


Since then, Park has created slimes that look like mocktails, icees, marshmallow, ice cream and meringue. Her Mint Choco Chip Ice Cream slime doesn’t feel like real ice cream so much as it feels like “the idea of touching it without it melting away in your hands,” she says.

Park started making slime several years ago after dipping into the satisfaction internet, seeing slime videos on Instagram and thinking, “I want to touch it so bad.” Back then the internet was not crawling with shops and do-it-yourself tutorials, as it is now, so she experimented in making her own. At first she was disappointed — her attempts were too hard, too flubby, too watery or sticky — but now she is among the internet’s most skilled slimers. Park ships 400 to 500 tubs of slime a week out of her one-bedroom apartment in Weehawken, N.J. Her husband quit his job to help her slime full-time. Park’s parents are supported by the enterprise.

In the converted bedroom — their bed sits in the living room — Park mixes huge batches of slime bases in a commercial-grade standing mixer. Her husband Sungyeop Jo is, among other things, the muscle of the outfit; the large batches require significant upper-body strength. The bases will keep for about two days before they begin to de-slime. Park separates the bases into smaller tubs and fine-tunes each with its own sublime texture, soothing pastel dye, and mixed-in miniature charms shaped like coffee beans, sprinkles, tiny whales or unicorn horns. She adds essential oils, too. The scent is “very important,” Park said. If it doesn’t meld with the visual impression, “It can throw the whole slime off.”

When a batch is finished, Park posts the results to Instagram. The slimes are filmed on professional cameras, recorded with a microphone favored by ASMR practitioners, and manipulated into pleasing shapes by Park’s hands, which operate with the care of a pastry chef or a masseuse, and are always freshly manicured. “It’s part of the job,” she said. During a recent visit, they were painted a subtly purple gloss, matching an iridescent lavender slime she had just cooked up.

Though slime can be a lucrative business, it is also a site of pure play. It has bloomed into a symbol of modern childhood, and in particular, girlhood. Park has fans of all ages, but her core audience is elementary and middle-school kids, many of whom are drawn to slime for its relaxing properties. Perhaps slime’s mock-dessert qualities are particularly appealing to children, who are constantly confronted with desserts they usually can’t eat and definitely can’t hold in their hands. Slime offers the experience of being able to play with your food — to squeeze a perfect soft-serve swirl of ice cream in your fist and then twist it back into shape.


For Anaiya Shirodkar and Lily Lokoff, two rising sixth-grade girls in Philadelphia who mix up batches of the stuff in their parents’ kitchens as a hobby, slime represents the collision of classic D.I.Y. creativity and YouTube-molded kid culture. Algorithms serve up videos that offer new slime recipes to try and games to play. Those can take the form of recreations of filmed YouTuber “challenges,” like, try to make slime with a blindfold over your eyes.

Slime is inspired by screen images, but it is also an escape from them — you can’t be glued to your phone when your hands are covered in glue. And it is representative of the internet’s tendency to push even the purest of activities into a market. Lily’s school cracked down on the slime trade after it caused too much drama; Anaiya and Lily sold tubs on the sidewalk after a sleepover. As the Atlantic writer Taylor Lorenz put it, “slime shop is the new lemonade stand.”

But it also just feels good. When I asked Anaiya and Lily how they would describe the sensation of slime, both replied: “Satisfying.”

It is probably not a coincidence that slime has risen just as we have come to define ourselves by our anxieties, our food issues, and our efforts to fend it all off with practices of self-care. The internet can replicate and exacerbate these stressors, but slime can work in the opposite way, as a kind of timeline cleanse. The word “satisfy” comes from the Old French satisfaire, which meant to repay or make reparations. Perhaps that is what slime is: the internet’s atonement for everything else.
