Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Neurohaptics is the field of study that strives to understand the complex neural representation provoked in response to tactile and/or kinesthetic stimuli. This field has garnered a noticeable attention over the past decade not only in neuro-scientific research but also in medical, marketing and engineering fields. In this paper, we review existing literature on Electroencephalography (EEG)-based neurohaptic studies charting out the main themes and significant findings. Furthermore, we provide a brief review of the EEG analytical methods commonly utilized in the neurohaptic domain. Also, we present a case study with the complete flow of conducting neurohaptic research studies. Lastly, we discuss limitations and provide directions for future neurohaptic research, such as: modeling quality of haptic experience, improving neurohaptic systems and neurohatpics in virtual reality.
