What is ASMR

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is an experience that can be mostly described by a tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine.

The Wikipedia Definition

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) signifies the subjective experience of ‘low-grade euphoria‘ characterized by ‘a combination of positive feelings, relaxation, and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin’.

It typically begins ‘on the scalp’ before moving ‘down the spine’ to the base of the neck, sometimes spreading ‘to the back, arms and legs as intensity increases’, most commonly triggered by specific acoustic and visual stimuli including the content of some digital videos, and less commonly by intentional attentional control.
