The measurement of eight manipulative serial hand movements showed a clear distribution of their temporal characteristics into two distinct groups. When the hand was used as a sense organ during active touch the finger movements across objects were restricted to a slow performance range below 2 Hz. Recordings from single mechanoreceptive afferents and calculations of their receptor densities indicated that these movements have to be slow to match the temporal requirements of the sequential… CONTINUE READING
