The effect of active and passive finger movement on cutaneous sensitivity to nonpainful electric stimulation was studied in 7 healthy human subjects. Active and passive finger movement produced a suppression of threshold stimuli, whereas the amplitude discrimination of suprathreshold stimuli was enhanced during passive but not active movement.
The purpose of this study was to find out whether the finger movement-induced modulation of cutaneous discrimination thresholds varies with the intensity level of the test stimulation in various movement conditions. The effect of active and passive finger movement on cutaneous sensitivity to nonpainful electrical stimulation of threshold and suprathreshold(More)
