The hair on my skin rises only on the right side of the body when I'm kissed
on/in the right ear and vice/versa. Why is this? What are the
neural pathways involved and what is the function of this phenomena? I
understand that the sense organs like the ears are extra sensitive for
protective reasons (i.e. insects can crawl into the ear), but I think this is a
strange reaction, this asymmetrical hair rising.
