Touch

How do you feel? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to the sense of touch! You’ll learn how touch is different from your four other senses, where touch begins in your body, and how you experience tactile sensations. Find out what parts of your skin work to help you feel, how they send information to your brain, and what parts of your body are most sensitive to touch. Plus, you'll discover what your somatic senses are and how many different types of nerve endings handle different types of sensations. This BrainPOP movie is actually quite touching!
