High-frequency (1000-2000 Hz) sinusoidal vibrations of the skin, which are normally imperceptible, induce distinct sensations when amplitude modulation is applied in the frequency region around 200 Hz. This phenomenon appears to be initiated in the mechanoreceptor, as a result of rectification in the mechanoelectrical transduction process. The curve for sensitivity to modulation frequency resembles the frequency-sensitivity curve of the Pacini receptor system. The low-frequency slope is flatter… CONTINUE READING
