Abstract: Physical contact among individuals, such as caressing and cuddling, is connoted by a strong emotional value, and is usually perceived as a pleasant and rewarding experience. C tactile (CT) afferents are a class of fibres that are specific channels for detecting touch at a caress-like veloc-ity (between 1 and 10 cm/s). This velocity usually occurs during social interactions and is per-ceived as pleasant. Alongside rich literature about short-lasting pleasant touch, the aim of the present thesis i... more
