The effects of linear and logarithmic data transformations upon observed patterns of lingual vibrotactile sensitivity
Vibrotactile thresholds were obtained from the anterior midline surface of the tongue on three groups of normal-speaking young adults. A different frequency condition was employed for each of the groups tested. Threshold values were initially recorded in millivolts and subsequently converted to microns of displacement and decibels. Data comparisons showed a differential response to frequency for both kinds of transformations. This finding was discussed in terms of its implications concerning the nature and type of mechanoreceptors present in the cutaneous surface tissue of the tongue. Some suggestions for further research in this area were made. © 1975, The Psychonomic Society, Inc.. All rights reserved.
