Abstract

Tactile sensation is a valuable feedback for shaping human perception, for instance when using a mobile device or a touch screen. Most studies have used subjective assessments and focused on passive touch. This paper investigates the role of tactile stimulation objectively and quantitatively in active touch task just like real human computer interaction on a tablet device. In this study, participants performed an active touch task to touch virtual guitar lines on a tactile display device. We investigated the difference of neural activities with or without tactile stimulation and found a difference in beta oscillation in the middle frontal area at the late period (from 650 ms to 1000 ms) of the active touch task period. It is assumed that the tactile stimulation felt by the participants’ fingertip further induces cognitive processing than the absence of tactile stimulation case. This study provides objective and quantitative evidence that tactile stimulation is able to affect the cognitive processing and top-down control.
