International research effort gives neuroscientists better feeling about sense of touch

6 enero 2015

Our sense of touch is one we often take for granted, until our leg falls asleep and we aren’t able to stand, or when we experience acute pain. The sense of touch also has been taken for granted in neuroscience, where it’s the sense scientists know the least about. For the first time, researchers have linked a group of neurons to a specific type of somatosensation, a finding that can open the door for a heightened understanding about our sense of touch.
