Defining "active sensing" through an analysis of sensing energetics: homeoactive and alloactive sensing.
Zweifel NO, Hartmann MJZ. Zweifel NO, et al. J Neurophysiol. 2020 Jul 1;124(1):40-48. doi: 10.1152/jn.00608.2019. Epub 2020 May 20. J Neurophysiol. 2020. PMID: 32432502 Free article. Review.
The term "active sensing" has been defined in multiple ways. Most strictly, the term refers to sensing that uses self-generated energy to sample the environment (e.g., echolocation). ...Using system dynamics, we examine how information flows through the loop. …

Active Interpersonal Touch Gives Rise to the Social Softness Illusion.
Gentsch A, Panagiotopoulou E, Fotopoulou A. Gentsch A, et al. Curr Biol. 2015 Sep 21;25(18):2392-7. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2015.07.049. Epub 2015 Sep 10. Curr Biol. 2015. PMID: 26365257 Free PMC article.
Remarkably, however, little is known about what motivates and sustains the human tendency to touch others in a pro-social manner. Given the importance of social touch, we hypothesized that active stroking elicits more sensory pleasure when touching oth …

Poster Session: Neural Correlates of the Visual Expectation of Active and Passive Touch.
Isenstein E, Rico G, Freedman E, Tadin D, Foxe J. Isenstein E, et al. J Vis. 2023 Sep 1;23(11):84. doi: 10.1167/jov.23.11.84. J Vis. 2023. PMID: 37733494 Free article.
The sense of touch is frequently paired with a visual stimulus that provides information on how the sensation will be experienced. This is true for both active touch-when a person moves to touch an object-and passive touch-when an …
