Lingual clamping procedures for measuring oral vibrotactile thresholds: II. Effects of using a lower clamping disk
Lingual vibrotactile thresholds were obtained from four experimental groups using different clamping procedures. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects on sensitivity which occur when using a solid lower clamping disk vs. a ring-type bottom support. Findings indicated more sensitive thresholds across five frequencies for the conditions employing a solid lower clamping disk. Clamping conditions which do not compress lingual tissue also demonstrated differential sensitivity across frequencies. Implications of these results are discussed in reference to prior research concerned with the nature of lingual mechanoreceptors. © 1977, The Psychonomic Society, Inc.. All rights reserved.
