The impulse responses to perpendicular sinusoidal skin displacements were recorded from 4 different types of mechanoreceptive different units innervating the glabrous skin of the human hand. The cycle responses, defined as the number of impulses evoked per sine wave cycle, were studied at a wide range of frequencies (0.5-400 Hz) and amplitudes (0.001-1mm). The rapidly adapting units (RA) were most easily excited at stimulus frequencies between 8 and 64 Hz, whereas the corresponding frequencies… CONTINUE READING
