Neural basis of the sense of flutter-vibration.

Abstract

Comparison of human detection thresholds for oscillatory movement of the skin of the hand with response properties of first-order myelinated mechanoreceptive afferents from the monkey's hand, activated in an identical stimulus pattern, indicates that flutter-vibration is a dual form of mechanical sensibility, served peripherally by two different sets of fibers.
