The effect of age on mechanoreceptive function in the distal part of the fingers was studied in 12 healthy subjects aged 18-64 years. A recording microelectrode was inserted into a sensory fascicle of the median nerve at the wrist. Multiunit mechanoreceptor activity was recorded from the fascicular field, which is typically restricted to the ulnar or radial half of one finger, corresponding to the innervation zone of one digital nerve. Strong standardized vibration (40 Hz) was applied to the… CONTINUE READING
