1. The innervation densities of mechanoreceptive fibres supplying the ridged glabrous skin of the middle and terminal phalanges of the monkey's (Macaca nemestrina) index finger were estimated using a combination of histological and neurophysiological procedures. 2. This estimate was based on (a) a count of the total number of A beta myelinated fibres in the palmar digital nerve at the level of the proximal phalanx, (b) the demonstration that the majority of A beta fibres in the monkey's palmar… CONTINUE READING
