Single unit responses of human cutaneous mechanoreceptors to air-puff stimulation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate responsiveness of human cutaneous mechanoreceptor to selective tactile stimuli produced by brief air-puff stimulation. METHODS Using percutaneous microneurography, activities of single sensory units innervating glabrous skin of the hand were recorded, and air-puff stimuli with a short rise time (0.5 ms), generated by a high-speed… (More)
