“Hardness” is mainly perceived through the forces that the fingers, jaws or tongue exert. Since the mechanical resistance of the tissues involved is often comparable in magnitude to that of the, tested object, the mechanical sensitivity must decline at a level determined by the resistance of both tissue and object. Sensory response to mechanical stimulus starts at zero, ends up in saturation or pain and ought to have certain mathematical properties. Superposition of the response intensity and… CONTINUE READING
