- Human ability to discriminate direction of three-dimensional force stimuli applied to the finger padAlessandro Panarese
ARTSLab, Scuola Superiore Sant Anna, Pontedera, Italy
J Neurophysiol 105:541-7. 2011..Moreover, we found that the discrimination ability was mainly affected by the time-varying phases of the stimulus, because adding a static plateau phase to the stimulus improved the discrimination threshold only to a limited extent...
