The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of extended suprathreshold vibratory stimulation on the sensitivity of slowly adapting type 1 (SA1), rapidly adapting (RA), and Pacinian (PC) afferents. To that end, an algorithm was developed to track afferent absolute (I0) and entrainment (I1) thresholds as they change over time. We recorded(More)
Extended suprathreshold vibratory stimulation applied to the skin results in a desensitization of cutaneous mechanoreceptive afferents. In a companion paper, we describe the dependence of the threshold shift on the parameters of the adapting stimulus and discuss neural mechanisms underlying afferent adaptation. Here we describe the time-course of afferent(More)
