Skin mechanoreceptors

Skin sensitivity: specificity of the dynamics of spatial­temporal patterns of activity of mechanoreceptors versus «labeled lines»

Through the development of methods for detecting the dynamics of spatial-temporal patterns of activity in the nervous system fundamental evidences obtained, that the sensory code have integrative nature and theories of localisation of function are inconsistent. The paper presents a review of electrophysiological data and models, indicating the integrative mechanisms of information coding in the peripheral skin analyzer of humans and animals.
