    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.

    Somatosensory neurons integrate the geometry of skin deformation and mechanotransduction channels to shape touch sensing

    Alessandro Sanzeni et al.
    Nonlinear elasticity of skin tissues and somatosensory neural responses are combined to predict and test C. elegans processing of touch stimuli and modifications due to changes in the body mechanics.

    Damage to the right insula disrupts the perception of affective touch

    Louise P Kirsch et al.
    Lesion analyses in right hemisphere stroke patients reveal the crucial role of the right anterior and posterior insula in the perception of affective touch.

    Mapping quantal touch using 7 Tesla functional magnetic resonance imaging and single-unit intraneural microstimulation

    Rosa Maria Sanchez Panchuelo et al.
    The combination of intraneural microstimulation and 7T fMRI makes it possible to bridge the gap between first-order mechanoreceptive afferent input codes and their spatial, dynamic and perceptual representations in human cortex.

    Rapid learning and unlearning of predicted sensory delays in self-generated touch

    Konstantina Kilteni et al.
    The brain continuously updates the learned temporal relationship between motor commands and their associated somatosensory feedback, which determines the perceived intensity and ticklishness of self-touch.

    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.
    1. Neuroscience

    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.

    Acetylated tubulin is essential for touch sensation in mice

    Shane J Morley et al.
    Increased stiffness of sensory neurons in the absence of microtubule acetylation renders mice profoundly insensitive to touch and pain.

    Intracortical Microstimulation: Regaining the senses of touch and movement

    Victor de Lafuente
    Artificially activating certain neurons in the cortex can make a tetraplegic patient feel naturalistic sensations of skin pressure and arm movement.
