Rats explore objects by rhythmically whisking them with their mystacial vibrissae. On two types of tactile discrimination tasks, macrogeometric and microgeometric, better performers palpated the discrimnanda for longer periods of time and used movement patterns that appeared to optimize whisking frequency bandwidth and the extent to which the vibrissae would be bent by object contact. On a task involving finely textured surfaces, good and poor performers differed in the temporal components of… CONTINUE READING
