The perception of viscosity was studied using the contralateral limb-matching procedure in which subjects adjusted the viscosity of a motor connected to the wrist of one (matching) arm until it was perceived to be the same as that of the motor attached to the other (reference) arm. Two servo-controlled electromagnetic linear motors with computer-controlled viscosity were used to present viscosities ranging in amplitude from 2 to 1024 N · s/m to 11 subjects. Ten different viscosities were… CONTINUE READING
