Cerebellum-based adaptation for fine haptic control over the space of uncertain surfaces

H. Barron-Gonzalez, J. Porrill, N. F. Lepora, E. Chinellato, G. Metta, T. J. Prescott
2013 2013 World Haptics Conference (WHC)  
We propose a hand controller whose operational space is deÞned over the surface of contact. The surface is estimated using a robust probabilistic estimator, which is then used for path planning.  ...  This work aims to augment the capacities for haptic perception in the iCub robot to generate a controller for surface exploration.  ...  We require a hand controller whose operational space is deÞned over a surface of contact with unknown height and slope.  ...

Dual pathways for haptic and visual perception of spatial and texture information

K. Sathian, Simon Lacey, Randall Stilla, Gregory O. Gibson, Gopikrishna Deshpande, Xiaoping Hu, Stephen LaConte, Christopher Glielmi
2011 NeuroImage  
Here, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to investigate whether the pathways for haptic and visual processing of location and texture are segregated, and the extent of bisensory convergence  ...  We hypothesized that segregation of location vs. identity information in touch would be evident if texture is the relevant property for stimulus identity, given the salience of texture for touch.  ...  Support to K.S. from the Veterans Administration is also gratefully acknowledged. Appendix A.  ...

Computational Mechanisms of Sensorimotor Control

David W. Franklin, Daniel M. Wolpert
2011 Neuron  
We review these problems and five computational mechanisms that the brain may use to limit their deleterious effects: optimal feedback control, impedance control, predictive control, Bayesian decision  ...  In order to generate skilled and efficient actions, the motor system must find solutions to several problems inherent in sensorimotor control, including nonlinearity, nonstationarity, delays, redundancy  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust.  ...

A Brief Overview of the Human Somatosensory System [chapter]

Vincent Hayward
2018 Springer Series on Touch and Haptic Systems  
This information is collected by vast array of mechanoreceptors that are sensitive to the effects of contacting objects, often with the fingers, even far away for the region of contact.  ...  This chapter provides an overview of the human somatosensory system. It is the system that subserves our sense of touch, which is so essential to our awareness of the world and of our own bodies.  ...  an extremely fine spatiotemporal code [50] .  ...

Medical Devices for Tremor Suppression: Current Status and Future Directions

Jiancheng Mo, Ronny Priefer
2021 Biosensors  
Herein, we review the mechanisms of action, safety and efficacy profiles, and clinical applications of different medical devices that are currently available or have been previously investigated for tremor  ...  Due to the pathophysiology of tremor, developing effective pharmacotherapies, which are only suboptimal in the management of tremor, has many challenges.  ...  Acknowledgments: The authors wish to thank the School of Pharmacy at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University for their financial support of this project.  ...

Text Materialities, Affordances, and the Embodied Turn in the Study of Reading

Terje Hillesund, Theresa Schilhab, Anne Mangen
2022 Frontiers in Psychology  
Digital texts have for decades been a challenge for reading research, creating a range of questions about reading and a need for new theories and concepts.  ...  The aim of the paper is to encourage empirical research on the interplay between body (including brain), text, and text materialities, a focus we argue will deepen our understand of the current transformation  ...  The annotation and underlining process was a way of directing and slowing down the pace of reading to make space for reflection and inference, and to think further than the text itself.  ...
