So, although hapticity suggests a primacy of haptifity that evidence from neuroscience does. Bloomer and Moore, For instance, Albright is approaching design with a neuroscientific perspective on perception and aesthetics. Here, we highlight some commonalities and differences between the concepts of hapticity and supramodality according to the distinctive perspectives of architecture and cognitive neuroscience.

Body, Memory, and Architecture. No use, distribution or reproduction is permitted which does not comply with these terms. Touch could even entail emotional involvement with inanimate objects e.

Visuo-haptic object-related activation in the ventral visual pathway. It makes it easy to scan through your lists and keep track of progress. Indeed, individuals who are visually deprived since birth show perceptual, cognitive, and social skills comparable to those found in sighted individuals Ricciardi et al.

Motion, emotion and empathy in esthetic experience. Actually, the comparison between these two different, but complementary approaches, may lead to novel observations regarding the people—environment relationships e. This item appears on List: Neuroimaging protocols have been suggesting that distinct perceptual tasks evoke comparable patterns of brain responses between congenitally blind and sighted individuals: For instance, a recent study showed that symmetry is represented in the lateral occipital cortex in a supramodal fashion Bauer et al.

Somatosensation in social perception. Spatial Imagery relies on a sensory independent, though sensory sensitive, functional organization within the parietal cortex: Physiological evidence for serial processing in somatosensory cortex. On the contrary, if a paradigm shift awaits architecture, it cannot rely on a turn to neuroscience alone: Revisiting the adaptive and maladaptive effects of crossmodal plasticity.


A synergy-based hand control is encoded in human motor cortical areas. So, although hapticity suggests a primacy of touch that evidence from neuroscience does not fully support, it also highlights the urge for a deeper understanding of processing or integration of multiple sensory modalities in environmental perception and appraisal.

Precisely, supramodality refers to the functional feature of defined brain regions to process and represent specific information content in a more abstract way, independently of the sensory modality conveying such information to the brain. Do we really need vision? In fact, touch is constrained both spatially and temporally, as compared to vision. A topographical organization for action representation in the human brain.

In particular, although vision offers distinctive and unique pieces of information e. Currently, multisensory perceptual integration and the role of the sense of touch in architectural design are being explored through the notion of hapticity.

Supramodal areas showing functional responses to different perceptual, cognitive, and affective stimuli as shown through different colorsindependently from the sensory modality that conveys the information to the brain [modified from Ricciardi et al.

Please review our privacy policy. Are visual texture-selective areas recruited during haptic texture discrimination?

Brain modeling of noun representations in sighted and blind individuals. Neuroscience, Embodiment, and the Future of Design.

The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. Many scientific fields that have matured toward the establishment of accepted methods had to come to terms with theoretical uncertainties such as those faced by architectural theorists and researchers right now.

Open in a separate window. Complexity, Cognition and the City. A specific topic now emerging in the neuro-architectural debate deals with the relationship between sensory experience and architectural perception.

By definition, haptic perception happens in sequence, within a limited perceptual range and only through direct contact with the perceived object Pons et al.


Since then, various important contributions have emerged from both fields Eberhard, ; Mallgrave, ; Robinson and Pallasmaa, Similarly, the architect Sara Robinson recently reconsidered the privileged link between haptic sensations and emotion.

Arbibis directly addressing designers with suggestions on sensory perception that could have an impact on design practice. The conceptual potential of hapticity may have not been fully characterized yet, and therefore not fully exploited by architects. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Provocatively, we may argue that neurophysiology and design started influencing one another during the Renaissance, when anatomists and designers shared their education, studies and the same cultural milieu: Consequently, the great majority of psychophysical and neuroscientific studies have been historically focused on the characterization of visual perception and on the dissection of the different steps of visual information processing e.

Constructing and communicating equality: Tapio Wirkkala Rut Bryk Foundation;23— Impact of contour on aesthetic judgments and approach-avoidance decisions in architecture. Yapticity List Front Ahd v. Notably, the question of the extent to which vision is really necessary for the human brain to function, and thus to represent the surrounding world, has recently extended hapgicity reach toward a few architectural theorists Robinson and Pallasmaa, Tapio Wirkkala Rut Bryk Foundation;5— Crossmodal and multisensory interactions between vision and touch.

Please log in to set a read status. In addition, the sense of touch relies more on specific properties, such as surface texture, than global ones, such as shape or localization in space e.

Touch is a key element in communicating emotions and intimacy, maintaining and reinforcing social bonds Suvilehto et al.
