Abstract : The review embraces some of the research on cutaneous sensitivity which has been reported, for the most part, within the last 15 years. The major emphasis is upon reports of a fundamental nature. Several areas of research have been ignored completely; such as tactile communications and pain. Part 1 is a conventional review of reports, briefly outlining apparatus, procedures and findings. Part 2 is an attempt to show where data from different experiments appear to be, or not be, consistent, and it discusses the problems and difficulties that confront the scientist engaged in cutaneous research.
