    Daniel Goldreich
    Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
    Percept Psychophys 68:1363-71. 2006

    ..Thus, a man and a woman with fingers of equal size will, on average, enjoy equal tactile acuity. We further show that sweat pores, and presumably the Merkel receptors beneath them, are packed more densely in smaller fingers...
