The encoding of friction by tactile mechanoreceptors - the key to fingertip force control during dexterous object manipulation by humans
Unmatched human ability to control the hand so that brittle objects are gently held without slipping, or being crushed by excessive force rely on sophisticated tactile sense in the fingertips. This project will record and analyse signals which human ne...
