Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Loss of the ability to comprehend the meaning or recognize the importance of various forms of stimulation that cannot be attributed to impairment of a primary sensory modality. Tactile agnosia is characterized by an inability to perceive the shape and nature of an object by touch alone, despite unimpaired sensation to light touch, position, and other primary sensory modalities.

Perception of shape and form of objects by TOUCH, via tactile stimuli.

Stiff hairs projecting from the face around the nose of most mammals, acting as touch receptors.

Placing of the hands of the healer upon the person to be cured with the intent of spiritual energetic healing.
