How our Brains Respond to Texture Sliman Bensmaia, associate professor at the University of Chicago, is one of the few neuroscientists who investigate the sense of touch. They are few for a reason, Bensmaia says: “It’s only the self-hating neuroscientists that are going to study the sense of touch. If you study vision, you buy a nice monitor. If you study hearing, you buy great speakers. But when you study touch, there is no such thing. You have to build a device specifically for your research question.” “Feeling – a bit like seeing, a bit like hearing” https://dana.org/article/how-our-brains-respond-to-texture/
