Overview:

This is how you touch: Nerve cells throughout your body respond to external stimuli by sending nerve impulses to your brain. To put it another way, your skin’s nerve cells respond to the things you touch, allowing you to feel them.

This resource presents a short slide show about how humans interpret and respond to things they touch. After utilizing this resource, the students can complete the short test to assess their understanding.
