Sifu, I've been doing some research into haptics lately and I'm beginning to appreciate more and more the role proprioception might play in "object shape perception" through the sense of touch.
I was wondering if you have any information on this subject, off the top of your head, that might be helpful in my investigations along these lines (please don't spend too much of your time on this - I will keep looking myself - at this point it is nothing more than a personal curiosity).
Specifically, is there any work you have you come across that might suggest the size of the articular capsule to have any effect on the joint proprioception? Also how the articular capsule volume is controlled neurologically (for example does it work through direct neurological control of the joint capsule or is it governed indirectly by the manipulation of ligaments, tendons or other fascia as well as any stabilizer muscles)?
Thank you Sifu.
Peace and harmony!
