IASAT 2017 - 2nd Congress
About this event:
Following the successful inaugural congress in 2015, we once again brought together researchers from around the world to explore and discuss the biology and psychology of affective touch, and its role in brain development and social behaviour.
Several influential studies have examined the neurobiology, physiology and genetics of affective touch, and highlighted its social and cognitive importance. The aim was to provide a platform for fruitful scientific exchanges in this nascent field, and foster interdisciplinary dialogue between scientists and professionals in education, health and social care.
