MOUNTCASTLE, AND JUHANI HYVPiRINEN Department Baltimore, of Physiology, Mary/nrad 21205 HIDE0 SchooZ of SAKATA, Aledicine, Hopkins THE AIM of the program of research of which the present work is a part is to understand the neural mechanisms in somatic sensation, the latter considered in terms of the stimulus-response relations in the temporal as well as in the intensive and spatial domains. Earlier studies have shown that an approach of some heuristic and explanatory value is to compare directly measures of the human performance when dealing with certain patterns of stimuli-in detection, recognition, discrimination, and scaling-with the neural events elicited by those same stimuli in the somatic afferent system of monkeys (18). This was done, for example, in a study of the sense of fluttervibration (32). Oscillating mechanical stimuli were delivered to the glabrous skin of the hands of human subjects, and the threshold detection function established over the range of frequencies to which humans are sensitive. Exactly similar stimuli were delivered to the glabrous skin of monkeysâ hands while recording the electrical signs of the trains of impulses evoked by them in
