1. Alonso DDS, Aurelio Abdalla MS. A magnetoencephalographic (MEG) study of brain mechanisms in temporomandibular disorder.

Degree: PhD, Oral Biology, 2009, University of Minnesota

The main goal of this study was to investigate, using MEG, the dynamic neural mechanisms underlying facial tactile stimulation in two groups of subjects, namely a control group (without pain) and a TMD pain group (arthromyalgia), by stimulating the facial skin with a non-painful air-driven plastic membrane. Our first specific aim was to investigate and compare the spatial and temporal features of the ECDs following innocuous tactile stimuli in both groups. And t he second specific aim was to investigate the differences in dynamic brain function between these two groups using a time-frequency analysis of the MEG data. In summary, innocuous tactile stimulation proved to be a successful way to measure brain spatio-temporal dynamics in two group population. We were able to demonstrate very clear the differences in brain organization and dynamics between these two groups using an innocuous stimulus and without causing an unpleasant feeling. The results obtained allow for a paradigm shift in future research of brain mechanisms in pain by the use of non-painful tactile stimuli to evaluate brain function in various orofacial (or other) pain conditions, including neurovascular and neuropathic pains and other complex orofacial pain disorders.

2. Frediani, Gabriele. Enabling wearable soft tactile displays with dielectric elastomer actuators.

Degree: PhD, 2018, Queen Mary, University of London

Touch is one of the less exploited sensory channels in human machine interactions. While the introduction of the tactile feedback would improve the user experience in several fields, such as training for medical operators, teleoperation, computer aided design and 3D model exploration, no interfaces able to mimic accurately and realistically the tactile feeling produced by the contact with a real soft object are currently available. Devices able to simulate the contact with soft bodies, such as the human organs, might improve the experience. The existing commercially available tactile displays consist of complex mechanisms that limit their portability. Moreover, no devices are able to provide tactile stimuli via a soft interface that can also modulate the contact area with the finger pad, which is required to realistically mimic the contact with soft bodies, as needed for example in systems aimed at simulating interactions with virtual biological tissues or in robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery. The aim of this thesis is to develop such a wearable tactile display based on the dielectric elastomer actuators (DEAs). DEAs are a class of materials that respond to an electric field producing a deformation. In particular, in this thesis, the tactile element consists of a so-called hydrostatically coupled dielectric elastomer actuator (HC-DEAs). HC-DEAs rely on an incompressible fluid that hydrostatically couples a DEA-based active part to a passive part interfaced to the user. The display was also tested within a closed-loop configuration consisting of a hand tracking system and a custom made virtual environment. This proof of concept system allowed for a validation of the abilities of the display. Mechanical and psychophysical tests were performed in order to assess the ability of the system to provide tactile stimuli that can be distinguished by the users. Also, the miniaturisation of the HC-DEA was investigated for applications in refreshable Braille displays or arrays of tactile elements for tactile maps.

3. Lindahl, Caroline. Det visuella ordets kraft på kunders känselbeteende : En kvantitativ studie om kunders beslutsfattande i detaljhandelsbranschen.

Degree: Management Accounting and Logistics, 2013, Linnaeus University

Syfte:                     Syftet med uppsatsen är att beskriva, analysera samt tillhandahålla rekommendationer om huruvida stimulans av sinnena, leder till att kundernas beslutsfattande förändras genom taktil beröring. Vi vill med hjälp av en empirisk studie klargöra om kunder ändrar sitt känselbeteende efter att sinnet syn blivit påverkat.   Metod:                   Uppsats är baserad på en kvantitativ metod med en deduktiv ansats. Arbetet kretsar kring de experiment som utförts med tillhörande kundintervjuer på heminredningsavdelningen på Åhléns i Kalmar. Hypoteser har formats ur instuderad teori, som sedan har testats under experimenten på Åhléns.   Slutsats:        Genom stimulans av sinnena syn och känsel, har författarna med hjälp av experiment kunnat registrera ett förändrat beteende gällande kunders beslutsfattande. Resultatet tyder på att företag kan använda sig av sinnesstimuli för att skapa kontakt med sina kunder. Det har även framkommit att stimulans av synen och känseln har påverkat den tid kunderna känner på produkterna, och då också tagit dem ett steg längre i deras beslutsfattande i köpprocessen. 

Subjects/Keywords: Sensory marketing; visual sense; tactile sense; store signs; stimuli; shopping experience; decision making.; Sinnesmarknadsföring; synsinnet; känselsinnet; butiksskyltar; stimulans; kundbeteende; beslutsfattande.
