Previous studies have identified a collection of brain areas that show neural selectivity for the distinction between human-to-human and human-to-object interactions, including regions implicated in s...
Self-generated touch feels less intense than external touch of the same intensity. According to theory, this is because the brain predicts and attenuates the somatosensory consequences of our movement...
We explored the association between ionizing radiation (IR) from pre-natal and post-natal radio-diagnostic procedures and brain cancer risk within the MOBI-kids study.
This study compared the receptive field (RF) properties and firing rates of neurones in the cutaneous hand representation of primary somatosensory cortex (areas 3b, 1 and 2) of 9 awake, adult macaques...
This study aims to investigate the effects of adding whole-body vibration (WBV) exercise to squat training (ST) on the physical function and muscle strength of patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA).
This study will attempt to measure the direct effect of pleasant skin touch on the developing infant brain. The massage intervention stimulates a specific class of unmyelinated C-fibres in...
The study was carried to determine the effect of yakson or gentle human touch methods applied by the mothers to their preterm newborns on mother's attachment level and baby's response.
The purpose of this project is to evaluate whether or not Healing Touch therapy (HT) helps to treat the stress of babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Healing Touch is a gen...
Patients with focal dystonia experience uncontrollable movements of the hand during certain types of skilled movements. Though the origin of the disorder is not fully understood, it is tho...
This is a randomized controlled prospective study on the use of therapeutic touch in patients diagnosed with gynecological cancer. The patients will be randomized into three groups: contro...
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
The process by which the nature and meaning of tactile stimuli are recognized and interpreted by the brain, such as realizing the characteristics or name of an object being touched.
A range of healthcare related training designed to reduce MEDICAL ERRORS and improve PATIENT SAFETY by emphasizing TEAMWORK and human factors (see HUMAN ENGINEERING).
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.
An order of mammals consisting of more than 300 species that include LEMURS; LORISIDAE; TARSIERS; MONKEYS; and HOMINIDS. They are characterized by a relatively large brain when compared with other terrestrial mammals, forward-facing eyes, the presence of a CALCARINE SULCUS, and specialized MECHANORECEPTORS in the hands and feet which allow the perception of light touch.
