Testing procedures for measuring oral vibrotactile thresholds: III. Effects obtained using a nonclamping method
Lingual vibrotactile thresholds were obtained from 20 randomly selected adult subjects utilizing a modified testing technique which does not clamp the lingual structure. Results across five frequencies showed a flat nonsummating response that was significantly different from previous results in which some degree of lingual clamping was procedurally employed. Findings were consistent over test-retest conditions and supported the view that lingual clamping may distort tissues so as to excite ventrally based frequency-responsive mechano-receptors. © 1978, The Psychonomic Society, Inc..
