VIBRATION SENSE

VIBRATION SENSE Abstract Within recent years controversies have arisen as to the nature of the vibration sense. At first, chiefly as the result of clinical observation, it was thought that the receptors for vibration sense were present in the muscles, tendons, periosteum and bones and perhaps the arteries and that sensations traveled from them with other forms of proprioceptive sense.

In the school of investigators who believe that the receptors for vibration sense are limited to the skin, differences of opinion exist as to whether they are of the character of pressure receptors, as held by von Frey,2 or are associated with an independent aspect of touch, as supported by Katz.3 Some differences of opinion are due to lack of clearness in terminology; for example, the interpretation of deep sensibility as subcutaneous sensibility instead of a References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Within recent years controversies have arisen as to the nature of the vibration sense. At first, chiefly as the result of clinical observation, it was thought that the receptors for vibration sense were present in the muscles, tendons, periosteum and bones and perhaps the arteries and that sensations traveled from them with other forms of proprioceptive sense. As early as 1889, Rumpf1 concluded that the receptors were limited to the skin. In the school of investigators who believe that the receptors for vibration sense are limited to the skin, differences of opinion exist as to whether they are of the character of pressure receptors, as held by von Frey,2 or are associated with an independent aspect of touch, as supported by Katz.3 Some differences of opinion are due to lack of clearness in terminology; for example, the interpretation of deep sensibility as subcutaneous sensibility instead of a References 1.
