ASMR Research Team Gains a new Team Member

Recently, I was informed of a new team member who will be joining the research effort.

Her name is Karissa Ann, and she’s a Psychology major with minors in both Neuroscience and Biological Sciences from the University of Connecticut. She's worked in two labs, one on cognitive neuroscience, and another working on autism research – I totally copied that word for word from the briefing I was given behind the scenes. I didn’t want to screw up… again.

Jenn went into great detail as regards what the team and group at large is all about, and the two had an interview of sorts to see if Karissa would be a fitting asset to the team.

Having a read through some of her thoughts on ASMR, I must say that her excitement is quite infectious, and she seems to have a good attitude. Apart from having some impressive qualifications, she is also an experiencer, and is enthusiastic to start with the research as soon as possible – particularly the video trials.

Speaking of which, we are sorry for the great delay as regards the second video trial. It was initially scheduled to take place in January, but plenty of time has passed since then, obviously. I know some of you are getting fed up – asking about what’s being done as far as research into this phenomenon is going, and some even openly criticizing the group and the whole purpose of it.

But the good news is that things will hopefully pick up soon, as I hear that Karissa is eager to get stuck in, and Jenn is on about processing the 100-something applications we have for the video trials.

If there was ever a time for me to get back to work, it’s right about now. I talked the other day about being out of the loop for two or three weeks due to personal and technical reasons – but it seems as though I’m back for the time being, and almost everything is working the way I want it too. So perhaps like last year, the middle of the year means that we’re about to get busy.

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
