We examined the tickle sensitivity of 46 female psychology students with reference to different areas of the body and cerebral dominance. Analysis indicated a significant difference between two halves of the body for latency and not for duration. The dimensional approach, as we have suggested for other research on cerebral dominance, singled out for both(More)
We examined separately tickle perception and pleasure and anxiety during sexual sequence of 40 dermapathic (20 men and 22 women) and 39 normal subjects (20 men and 19 women) aged between 35 and 40 yr. The dermapathic patients have an inhibitory attitude towards tactile perception of tickling and high anxiety during the sexual sequence. Furthermore, they(More)
Barrier and Penetration scores in relation to some variables, such as muscular tone at rest, sensitivity to tickle, and body perception were studied in a group of 35 female subjects. While no correlations appear within the whole group of subjects between Barrier scores and the other variables, on the left side of the body. Dividing subjects on the basis of(More)
Two aspects of body image (body perception and body acceptance), muscle tone at rest, and disposition to perceive positively connoted stimuli (tickle) were studied with 35 female subjects. Our hypothesized relation of muscle tension and body perception was confirmed by an inverse correlation between these variables. Also evident was the link of the good(More)
This study examined some aspects of the relationship between muscular tone at rest and a particular kind of pleasurable tactile stimulation (tickle) in the light of the dimensional approach to cerebral dominance. Electromyographic scores, latencies, and tickle durations for six muscles and corresponding skin areas were taken both on the right and left sides(More)
The relationship between rhythmic reproduction of four stimulus frequencies (44, 80, 126, 200 beats a minute), chosen time, and arousal was studied with 32 subjects of both sexes. The following findings emerged: at the frequency of 44, the group is divided into equal numbers of subjects who either accelerate or slow down; a frequency of 80 induces a general(More)
