Humans have a sense of static limb position derived primarily from the output of secondary muscle spindle endings. The features of finger pose these proprioceptors signal best were predicted by singular value decomposition of a kinematic model of the human long finger and the six muscles that...
The organization of the descending projections from the intralaminar parafascicular nucleus was studied using biocytin as an anterograde tracer in rats. After biocytin injection into the lateral parafascicular nucleus, three bundles of fibers descending throughout the brainstem were seen....
This study evaluated the effects of two different types of segmental/extra-segmental conditioning stimuli (tonic muscle pain and non-painful vibration) on the subjective experience (perceived pain intensity) and on the cortical evoked potentials to standardized test stimuli (cutaneous electrical...
Recent studies have used grating orientation as a measure of tactile spatial acuity on the fingerpad. In this task subjects identify the orientation of a grooved surface presented in either the proximal-distal or lateral-medial orientation. Other recent results have suggested that there might be...
Temporal summation, a decrease in the detection threshold that occurs when either the duration of a stimulus or the number of stimuli in a sequence is increased, has been attributed to the operations of either the mechanism of neural integration or of probability summation. Our experiments...
In previous studies primary sensory neurons of adult rats have been counted in lumbar dorsal root ganglia. However, different counting methods have given very different results and at the cervical level, recent data are scarce. In the present study, the number of neurons in C4, C5 and C6 adult...
