#Published:"Whisking musculature" by Dr. Sebastian Haidarliu (@WeizmannScience) http://ow.ly/LhDZX #OpenKnowledge #OpenScience
Definition. Whisking musculature is represented by a group of facial striated muscles that have their insertion sites within the mystacial pad and control vibrissa movements in whisking mammals. The role of the vibrissa movements in active rats for equilibration, determining nearness or position ...

#Published:"Aftereffects in touch" by Prof. Kappers & Dr. Bergmann Tiest (@VUamsterdam) http://ow.ly/Lhjn0 #OpenKnowledge #OpenScience
An aftereffect is the change in the perception of a (test) stimulus after prolonged stimulation with an (adaptation) stimulus. Usually, this change is in the negative direction, that is, in a direction opposite to that of the adaptation stimulus. Aftereffects are often fast and strong.

#Published:"Tactile control of balance" by Drs. Johannsen (@TU_Muenchen) Wing (@unibirmingham) & Redfern (@PittTweet) http://ow.ly/L9J2G
Introduction. The stability of a mechanical system may be defined as the time taken to return to its initial state when perturbed by external forces or torques. Thus a stable chair is one which, when tipped so that two legs rise of the ground, returns to its initial upright position with all ...

#Published:"The Daya Bay Experiment" by Profs. Miao He and YiFang Wang (CAS) http://ow.ly/L56Nt #OpenKnowledge #OpenScience #OpenAccess
Introduction. The study of neutrinos is an extremely active field within elementary particle physics. Neutrinos are elementary particles in the Standard Model and come in three types of flavors, known as \(\nu_e\), \(\nu_\mu\) and \(\nu_\tau\). In the Standard Model, neutrinos are massless.

#Published:"Tactile object perception" by Prof. Ahissar and Mrs. Nelinger and Assa (@WeizmannScience) http://ow.ly/L1bHS #OpenKnowledge
It is commonly assumed that object perception is the combination of sensory features into unified perceptual entities. Tactile object perception may therefore be defined as the perception of objects whose feature information is acquired via touch. Consequently, research relevant to the topic of ...

#Published:"Imaging human touch" by Prof. Philip Servos (@LaurierNews) http://ow.ly/L71Dl #OpenKnowledge #OpenScience #OpenAccess
Since the early 20th century researchers have used techniques to visualize the neural organization of the human touch system. Imaging human touch covers research from the earliest known work involving electrical stimulation mapping to more recent techniques such as event-related potentials, ...

#Published:"Tactile temporal order" by Dr. Yamamoto (@AIST_EN) and Prof. Kitazawa (@osaka_univ_e) http://ow.ly/L2u50 #OpenKnowledge
The perception of tactile temporal order, the order of multiple touches to the skin in time, has long been a topic of research in psychophysics but has drawn new attention since the discovery that it depends not only on the stimulation interval but also on body postures in space.

The peer-reviewed open-access encyclopedia.
Introduction
Scholarpedia is like Wikipedia, but by and for scientists and scholars. It has more than 800 peer-reviewed "living entries" by Nobel Prize and Fields Medal winners, with many more in development. The advantage of a separate scholarly wiki is that academics can continue to target their peers with their writing and can get academic credit for their contributions (because their contributions are equivalent to publishing in a peer-reviewed journal).
