Individual Pacinian corpuscles situated near the cat's crural interosseous membrane were exposed and stimulated with weak mechanical pulses delivered by a piezo-electric transducer element, impulses so initiated being monitored in the interosseous nerve. With the nerve intact, single impulses were found to be capable of evoking in contralateral area II small predominantly surface-positive cortical potentials, usually less than 40 μV in amplitude. In some instances, use of an averaging computer… CONTINUE READING
