Results thus confirm findings on the influence of auditory stimuli on tactile perception [10].
As the flooring industry is international and export-oriented, the investigations of the tactile perception in different geographic regions of the world could be explored as there could be differences between cultural regions.
In contrast to the two perceptual domains, most extensively studied previously by differential psychologists -- vision and audition -- "tactile perception" (or "touch") includes modes of perception that do not all originate from excitation of the same receptor site.
Through the etymological analysis of the group of Old English verbs expressing REMEMBERING, I will argue that these verbal predicates are the result of different processes of metaphorical extension from three main lexical fields: POSSESSION, TACTILE PERCEPTION AND MOVEMENT.
The type of signal was chosen based on recommendations published on tactile perception (e.g., Verrillo, 1962) and based on pilot studies (Nikolic, Sklar, & Sarter, 1998).
Tactile Perception. Numerous studies reported that the visual cortex was recruited during diverse tactile tasks, such as the early and higher visual areas were activated in vibrotactile frequency discrimination [60], the hMT+ in tactile motion perception [37, 50, 61], and the ventral visual pathway in tactile object perception [38].
Some examples of specific topics covered include a behavioral adaptation approach to identifying visual dependence of haptic perception, the relationship between haptic feedback and force skill learning, tactile perception of rotational sliding, an infrared thermal measurement system for evaluating model-based thermal displays, design guidelines for wave variable controllers in time delayed telerobotics, transparent rendering of tool contact with compliant environments, incorporating geometric algorithms in impedance- and admittance-type haptic rendering, user perception and preference in model mediated telemanipulation, and a haptic/acoustic application to allow the blind access to spatial information.
Various sensory tasks (i.e., visual, auditory and tactile perception) have been included along with more cognitively-oriented tests (i.e., memory, logical reasoning, and verbal comprehension tasks) in major neuropsychological tests, such as the Luria-Nebraska Neuropsycological Battery (Golden, Hammeke, & Purisch, 1979) and the Halstead-Reitan Neuropsychological Battery (Maffei, Luoni, Vita, & Bertrando, 1987).
Compared to vision, the psychology and psychophysics of tactile perception remain relatively unexplored.
