Body mapping of cutaneous wetness perception across the human torso during thermo-neutral and warm environmental exposures.

Abstract

Sensing skin wetness is linked to inputs arising from cutaneous cold-sensitive afferents. As thermosensitivity to cold varies significantly across the torso, we investigated whether similar regional differences in wetness perception exist. We also investigated the regional differences in thermal pleasantness and whether these sensory patterns are influenced… (More)
