CTs & Microneurography in Moscow
As part of SomAffect’s developing collaboration with Anton Varlamov & Galina Protnova at the Russian Institute of Higher Nervous Activity and Neurophysiology, Francis McGlone & Adarsh Makdani were recently invited to help establish a Microneurography lab in Moscow.
The first series of experiments proved extremely promising, and included practice with ultrasound guided microneurography, and an encouraging trial experiment in a person with autism.
Professor McGlone was also invited to speak about C-Tactile Fibres, and the Social Touch Hypothesis, central to much of SomAffect’s work.
The lectures prompted engaging discussions between academics and practitioners, which we hope will be the springboard for a number of exciting research projects.
