The golden ratio—a contrary viewpoint. Arbibis directly addressing designers with suggestions on sensory perception that could have an impact on design practice.

Actually, the dialectics between the notions of hapticity and supramodality that hpaticity have described in this essay is a clear example of the weaknesses and potential strength of sharing theoretical models and terms. In particular, although vision offers distinctive and unique pieces of information e. In this sense, assessing the consistency or roughness of a material may recruit a supramodal neural content independently of the sense involved.

Precisely, supramodality refers to the functional feature of defined brain regions to process and represent specific information content in a more abstract way, independently of the sensory modality conveying such information to the brain. Brain modeling of noun representations in sighted and blind individuals.

Consequently, the great majority of psychophysical and neuroscientific studies have hpaticity historically focused on the characterization of visual perception and on the dissection of the different steps of visual information processing e. Your reading intentions are private to you and will not be shown to other users. Supramodality has more recently been shown to be tie in integrated semantic representations and affective processing, ranging from action understanding to emotional and social functioning Ricciardi et al.


Hapticity and time: notes on fragile architecture.

Open in a separate window. Misconceptions about the Golden Ratio.

Non-Visual Perception and Supramodality in the Human Brain Visual information plays a crucial role in shaping the manner in which we represent and interact with hapticiry world around us. Many scientific fields that have matured toward the establishment of accepted methods had to come to terms with theoretical uncertainties such as those faced by architectural theorists and researchers right now.

Actually, the comparison between these two different, but complementary approaches, may lead to novel observations regarding the people—environment relationships e. As a matter of fact, by supporting the view of a more abstract nature of information representation, supramodality could theoretically comprehend and thus represent the neural correlate of hapticity and consequently provide the theoretical basis for its empirical investigation.

Follow the University on. Revisiting the adaptive and maladaptive effects of crossmodal plasticity. One brain-two visual systems. A topographical organization for action representation in the human brain.

How It Drives Science. Neural correlates of spatial working memory in humans: A According to the notion of hapticityvisual cues e.

In the last decades, the rapid growth of functional brain imaging methodologies allowed cognitive neuroscience to address open questions in philosophy and social sciences. On these premises, Mallgrave approached the supramodal hypothesis as a possible neural explanation of hapticity.

Impact of contour on aesthetic judgments and approach-avoidance decisions in architecture. Visual information plays a crucial role in shaping the manner in which we represent and interact with the world around us. The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest.


Neural correlates associated with superior tactile symmetry perception in the early blind. For instance, Albright is approaching design with a neuroscientific perspective on perception and aesthetics.

In addition, the sense of touch relies more on specific properties, such as surface texture, than global ones, such as shape or localization in space e. Nowadays, the contribution of neuroscientists is actively influencing the architectural debate.

Crossmodal plasticity in sensory loss. In fact, touch is constrained both spatially and temporally, as compared to vision. Somatosensation in social perception. New light from the dark: Left, top and bottom: Because the theorists of hapticity supported their idea of a multimodal sensing in the architectural experience by relying on the neuroscientific evidence that visual and non-visual information is equally processed and represented in the human brain, design decisions can truly integrate such knowledge to enhance architectural experience embracing the whole of the different sensory modalities.

So, although hapticity suggests a primacy of touch that evidence from neuroscience does. Motion, emotion and empathy in esthetic experience. Visuo-haptic object-related activation in the ventral visual pathway.
