"Touch" redirects here. For other uses, see Touch (disambiguation).
For the study of touching behaviour in humans, see Haptics.

Tactual perception or is the awareness of physical objects through the sense of touch which is mediated by the somatosensory system.

Touch may be considered one of five human senses; however, when a person touches something or somebody this gives rise to various feelings: the perception of pressure (hence shape, softness, texture, vibration, etc.), relative temperature and sometimes pain. Thus the term "touch" is actually the combined term for several senses.
