About the lecture
Unlike other senses, touch is not optional for healthy human development. People can be born blind and deaf and still lead well-functioning and satisfying lives. Disruption of the sense of touch prenatally or a lack of touch in the early years of life results in lasting deleterious effects.
A complete absence of the sense of touch would probably not be compatible with life. Early physical contact thus represents a natural preventive intervention that has a positive impact on physical and psychosocial health.
In this lecture Dr. Dr. Damir del Monte will explain, how the affective touch system is built and why it is so powerful and significant for the human being.
