Adaptation to tactile motion

Our senses convey information about the energy in the environment (such as light or pressure) but not with absolute accuracy. By studying ‘inaccuracies' in perception, such as more...

Perception of motion in touch: Skin stretch and displacement across the skin as motion cues

When a hand moves over a surface, or an object slides across the skin, we feel not only what the surface is like, but the characteristics of the motion itself, such as its speed and more...
