Experiencing Interruptions?

Just A Touch

Cold, hot, smooth, rough, soft, hard. Sensations translate the world outside into the way we experience it. But what is the nature of these sensations? What creates the link between a soft blanket and our perception of its softness? Travel along the nerves in our body, from the skin to the brain, to discover the intricate orchestra of communicating neurons that lies behind the simplest touch.
