- Single unit microneurography was used to record the firing characteristics of the four classes of foot sole cutaneous afferents [fast and slowly adapting type I and II (FAI, FAII, SAI, and SAII)] in response to sinusoidal vibratory stimuli. Frequency (3-250 Hz) and amplitude (0.001-2 mm) combinations were applied to afferent receptive fields through a 6-mm diameter probe. The impulses per cycle, defined as the number of action potentials evoked per vibration sine wave, were measured over 1 s of vibration at each frequency-amplitude combination tested. Afferent entrainment threshold (lowest amplitude at which an afferent could entrain 1:1 to the vibration frequency) and afferent firing...
