“It’s like music to my ears” has a new meaning when it comes to the sound of the keys on a computer keyboard. Although many laptops and desktops have intentionally “silent” flat keys, the emergence of ASMR typing videos on Youtube has sparked interest in the louder mechanical-style keyboards used most often for PCs. Game.

But what exactly is the connection between ASMR and keyboard noise? We reached out to Craig Richard, professor of biopharmaceutical sciences at Shenandoah University to give us some answers. Richard is also the founder of ASMR University, an online resource center for all things ASMR, and the host of the “Sleep Whispers” podcast.

ASMR stands for “Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response” and Richard described it as “a deeply relaxing feeling often accompanied by mild, pleasant tingling in the brain.”

“You are more likely to experience it when a kind person gives you positive, gentle and personal attention, such as times with a parent, teacher, hairdresser, clinician, best friend or caring partner. . ASMR videos and ASMR podcasts recreate interpersonal moments like these to effectively induce ASMR, ”he told HuffPost.

Like whispers and tapping, Richard said keyboard sounds can fall into the ASMR-inducing category due to two factors: the sound is soft and non-threatening, and it is associated with a kind or focused person.

“Clicking on the keyboard is a sweet sound, especially when compared to a shard of glass or someone screaming. The click is the result of someone focusing on a task, so our brain relaxes because that person is engaged and unlikely to harm us, ”he said.

But even though the sound is nice, you’re unlikely to experience ASMR while typing yourself, just as it’s hard to tickle yourself. “The positive, personal attention of another individual seems to be very important for ASMR and deep relaxation,” said Richard. “This is probably because positive personal interactions increase our oxytocin, aka the love hormone, which likely mediates deep relaxation.”
