Physical Variables Underlying Tactile Stickiness during Fingerpad Detachment (May 2019 – November 2020)

One may notice a relatively wide range of tactile sensations even when touching the same hard, flat surface in similar ways. Little is known about the reasons for this variability, so in this project, we investigate how the perceptual intensity of light stickiness relates to the physical interaction between the skin and the surface.
