Title : Haptic identification of surfaces as fields of force Running Head : Haptic identification of surfaces

Abstract

The ability to discriminate an object's shape and mechanical properties from touch is one of the most fundamental somatosensory functions. When exploring physical properties of an object, such as stiffness and curvature, humans probe the object's surface and obtain information from the many sensory receptors in their upper limbs. This sensory information is… (More)
