1. Tactile discrimination of form requires motion of the hand across the object scanned. To dissociate lateral distortion of the skin from neuronal processing mechanisms involving multiple receptor classes and parallel central networks, we have simulated motion of bar patterns across the fingers and palm by the use of a computer-controlled grid of sequentially activated probes (OPTACON stimulator). Horizontal bar patterns have been swept across the hand at speeds of 30-120 mm/s to… CONTINUE READING
