Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


We present the first ever experimental quantification of the tactile spatial responsivity of the human cornea while after short teaching period of few minutes we were able to successfully transmit spatial tactile shapes that were stimulated on the cornea of the subjects participating in our clinical trials. Those shapes were identified by the subjects at high detection probability.
