    Matthew Ratcliffe. What is Touch?

    • ...For example, specific afferent pathways have been identified as projecting threatening (eg, painful stimulation; Craig, 2002) or comforting (eg, pleasant stroking; Löken, Wessberg, Morrison, McGlone, & Olausson, 2009; Olausson et al, 2002) cutaneous information to thalamic nuclei and from thalamus to pIC...

    • ...In contrast, the forearm is less sensitive in this regard, but stimulation can evoke a large affective response (Essick et al., 2010; Guest et al., 2009; Löken, Wessberg, Morrison, McGlone, & Olausson, 2009)...
    • ...Hairy skin, such as that of the forearm, is innervated by low-threshold C-tactile (CT) mechanoreceptors that are important in conveying affective touch (Liu et al., 2007; Löken, et al., 2009; McGlone, Vallbo, Olausson, Loken, & Wessberg, 2007 ;V allbo, Olausson, & Wessberg, 1999; Vallbo, Olausson, Wessberg, & Norrsell, 1993; Wessberg, Olausson, Fernström, & Vallbo, 2003)...
    • ...Such a result is further consistent with a hypothesis that low-threshold Ctactile (CT) mechanoreceptors are important in affective touch (Liu et al.,2007; Löken et al., 2009; McGlone et al., 2007; Reinisch & Tschachler, 2005 ;V allbo et al.,1999; Vallbo et al., 1993; Wessberg et al., 2003), given that hairy skin (e.g., of the forearm) is innervated by such fibers, but glabrous skin (e.g., of the fingerpad) is not (Liu et al., ...
