Tactile Temporal Resolution

Our awareness of surrounding environments is perceived, keeping temporal continuity, which is important for constructing a robust representation of the environment. Temporal limitations to sensory information processing inhibit extraordinal inflow of sensory inputs. For example, in tactile temporal order judgment, in which sensory inputs are successively provided, temporal resolution (as a discriminative limitation) is approximately 50 to 100 (Ide et al. 2019; Takahashi et al. 2013; Yamamoto and Kitazawa 2001). This suggests that we roughly summarize sensory inputs that are delivered within a certain temporal range, as the information of a single unit because of temporal resolution and cognitive processing capacity limitations.
Buhusi and Meck (2005) presented a neural timing process framework which was further sub-divided into three different stages. The millisecond timing stage represents the shortest time scale for neural processing, at ≤1 s, and served speech and motor...
