The present paper describes recent advances in our knowledge on human sensations as correlated to neural activity in specific (thermal) and non-specific (mechanothermal) skin afferents. In this respect, considerable progress has been achieved by technical developments of microelectrodes that allow the percutaneous recording of single fiber activity of myelinated and of unmyelinated skin afferents from conscious human subjects. Psychophysical and neurophysiological measurements have been… CONTINUE READING
