Lenka Gorman, M.Sc.

Research Assistant

Background

In her current project, she focuses on ways we can consciously interpret and predict touch in relation to trust in the non-threatening medical therapeutic domain. She is aiming to bring together her knowledge of phenomenology, neuroscience and clinical physiotherapy and she is hoping to find that the instant impression we form of a potential toucher (trust) plays a particular role in the complexity of willingness to be touched. A brief sight of the toucher will influence the anticipation and acceptance of his/her touch on our body.
