Temporal summation effects on lingual vibrotactile thresholds
Ascending lingual vibrotactile thresholds at 250 Hz were obtained for four groups of normal speaking adult subjects. Stimulus durations were varied for each respective group. Treshold values plotted as a function of stimulus duration indicated a temporal summation function occurring up to 200 msec. Findings are discussed in terms of underlying peripheral receptors and some implications for using summation measures as a basis for identifying oral sensory disorders.
