• ERP: Event-related potential •
SEP: Somatosensory evoked potential The somatosensory system is the sensory system of somatic sensation. – The sense of touch is mediated by the somatosensory system. Touch may simply be Touch considered one of five human senses; however, when however, a person touches something or somebody this gives rise to various feelings: the perception of pressure (hence shape, softness, texture, vibration, etc.), etc.), relative temperature and sometimes pain. Thus the term "touch" is actually the combined term for several touch" senses. In medicine, the colloquial term "touch" is senses. medicine, touch" usually replaced with somatic senses, to better reflect the variety of mechanisms involved. involved.
