Parameters of stimulation and perception in an artificial sensory feedback system.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The relationships between stimulus parameters and perceptions in a prosthetic feedback system were measured using psychophysical methods. Electrical stimulation of the median nerve produced a monotonic relation between frequency of stimulation and the perceived magnitude of the stimulus. There were two qualitatively different perceptions of the stimulation; one for low frequencies and one for high. These two qualities fit different psychophysical continuua, kind of stimulation, and amount of stimulation.
