National Research University Higher School of Economics: Emotions from Touch

National Research University Higher School of Economics: Emotions from Touch. “Touching different types of surfaces may incur certain emotions. This was the conclusion made by psychologists in a recent empirical study. Previously, emotional perception was generally studied in relation to visual and audial modalities. The researchers looked at how humans react to what they see or hear. This fresh research has helped to create the first ever database of textures, the tangible perception of which is associated with happiness, fear, surprise, disgust, anger, or sadness. The study’s results were published in the journal Consciousness and Cognition.”
