Haptic discrimination of object shape in humans: two-dimensional angle discrimination


The human ability to recognize objects on the basis of their shape, as defined by active exploratory movements, is dependent on sensory feedback from mechanoreceptors located both in the skin and in deep structures (haptic feedback). Surprisingly, we have little information about the mechanisms for integrating these different signals into a single sensory… (More)
