What is the Tactile Research Group?

Note: For all email addresses [at] is substituted for @ to discourage webcrawler programs used by spammers.

Background:

 

  • From its humble beginning as a handful of colleagues sitting on beds in a hotel room discussing research on the perception of touch, the TRG has become an international collection of over 100 people conducting research on a wide variety topics related to tactile perception. Our members come from both academia and industry and span a wide range of exciting topics including tactile acuity in the blind, haptic interfaces for driving and aviation, simulation of object texture in VR, sensory integration, synesthesia and haptic space perception.
Purpose:

 

  • The purpose of the TRG is to facilitate interaction between tactile researchers and to provide a venue to share new research findings. This is primarily achieved through the TRG annual meeting held in conjunction with the meeting of the Psychonomic Society.
Membership:

 

  • To become a "member" of the TRG, just let us know that you would like to join the group by contacting Krista Overvliet  (krista[dot]overvliet[at]uni-hamburg[dot]de) or Ilja Frissen (ilja[dot]frissen[at]mcgill[dot]ca).
