BACKGROUND Measuring perceptual judgments about stimuli while manipulating their physical characteristics can uncover the neural algorithms underlying sensory processing. We carried out psychophysical experiments to examine how humans discriminate vibrotactile stimuli. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Subjects compared the frequencies of two sinusoidal… CONTINUE READING
