TICKLISHUMAN

Understanding the neuroscience of the human perception of tickling

Understanding the neuroscience of the human perception of tickling

With her project “The neuroscience of human tickle perception” (TICKLISHUMAN), Konstantina Kilteni will focus on tickling, one of the most enigmatic human sensations, as we do not know how a touch can turn into a tickle and why our brain responds to other people’s but not our own tickles. Experiments on the perception of tickling have been extremely scarce and there is currently no active research on the subject on an international scale.
