Haptic Memory

A haptic memory is information that can be recalled that was originally collected by the sense of touch (tactile sense). This is a type of sensory memory that is collected through feeling or touching something.

An example of a haptic memory would be recalling what a peach feels like. When you recall it in your mind, you can remember the feeling of the fuzzy skin and softness of the peach. The ability to retain haptic memories develops early in infancy as it is important for feeding.
