    Low-noise encoding of active touch by layer 4 in the somatosensory cortex

    Samuel Andrew Hires et al.
    Touch information is represented with minimal noise in the somatosensory cortex during tactile exploration.

    Spinal signalling of C-fiber mediated pleasant touch in humans

    Andrew G Marshall et al.
    Pleasant touch perception in humans is unaffected by spinothalamic disruption indicating integrated spinal processing of hedonic and discriminative tactile inputs rather than privileged C-tactile-lamina I-spinothalamic projections.

    Fast and accurate edge orientation processing during object manipulation

    J Andrew Pruszynski et al.
    Tactile edge orientation processing during object manipulation is many times better than previously thought based on perceptual studies.

    Keratinocytes mediate innocuous and noxious touch via ATP-P2X4 signaling

    Francie Moehring et al.
    Keratinocytes are critical for normal innocuous and noxious touch through their mechanically evoked ATP release and subsequent signaling to P2X4 channels on sensory neurons.
    1. Neuroscience

    Computation identifies structural features that govern neuronal firing properties in slowly adapting touch receptors

    Daine R Lesniak et al.
    Computer simulations show that the firing patterns of branched touch receptors can be set in part by the organization of their sensory endings in the skin.

    Precise optical control of gene expression in C elegans using improved genetic code expansion and Cre recombinase

    Lloyd Davis et al.
    A method combining optimised genetic code expansion and optogenetics allows dissection of neural circuits with single-cell precision in freely moving animals.

    Intraneural stimulation elicits discrimination of textural features by artificial fingertip in intact and amputee humans

    Calogero Maria Oddo et al.
    Delivering specific patterns of electrical activity to the median nerve of the arm triggers reliable sensations of texture, suggesting that it may ultimately be possible to restore complex tactile information to users of prosthetic limbs.

    High-resolution imaging of skin deformation shows that afferents from human fingertips signal slip onset

    Benoit P Delhaye et al.
    Synchronous recording of skin deformations at the contact with a transparent surface and of tactile afferents from the fingertip reveals that afferents signal incipient slip.

    Scanned optogenetic control of mammalian somatosensory input to map input-specific behavioral outputs

    Ara Schorscher-Petcu et al.
    A system to generate ‘remote touch’ in freely behaving mice can be utilized to map behavior caused by precise somatosensory inputs.
    1. Neuroscience

    External location of touch is constructed post-hoc based on limb choice

    Femke Maij et al.
    Humans retrospectively localize touch after deciding on which limb it occurred, challenging the mainstream idea that tactile location in space is the basis for assigning touch to a body part.
