Humidity receptors have never been identified on human skin and the ability to perceive skin wetness has been suggested to rely on the sensory inputs arising from thermal cold afferents. However, limited data are available on how thermal afferents and their regional distribution influence the perception of wetness. PURPOSE: Given the regional variability in thermal sensitivity across the torso, here we examined whether regional differences in the sensitivity to wetness exist.
