The leader of the IBSEN team based at the University of Oxford, Robin Dunbar, has been working on an interesting issue: Where can someone touch you? Most of us would say it depends on who’s doing the touching but for the first time Robin and a team from Finland’s Aalto University (not the one participating in IBSEN) have mapped where we allow family, friends and strangers to touch us. Their results are published in journal PNAS this week. More on this here.
